"The built-in mike and speaker make the Touch a Wi-Fi cellphone. Apps like Skype or Line2 let you make free or cheap phone calls whenever you’re in a Wi-Fi hot spot. (The speaker’s on the bottom, so you can’t really hold it to your ear, but the speakerphone or Apple’s $30 earbuds work fine.) And using a free app like TextFree, you can send all the text messages you like without paying the phone company anything."
