If there was one thing that the iPad had working against it, it was the lack of cell service. Sure, it has iMessage and some have 3G, but sometimes a two minute phone call can communicate the same amount of information as twenty texts. This is why the new app Line2 HD is so groundbreaking, because it successfully turns an iPad into a phone.
Accessible via both wifi and 3G, the application keeps users in constant connection with their own personal phone line through the Line2 service. Complete with caller ID, the ability to call out, receive text messages, and even voice mail, the monthly cost for the service is a mere $9.95 a month or $99.50 for the entire year. Though this may sound costly, just remember what we all shell out on a monthly basis just to pay cell phone bills. In the long run it could actually be quite the money saver.
This functionality is just the tip of the iceberg, so check out the video below and give the free app a download. After all, with a free seven day trail, what do you have to lose?
