New iPod Touch is ready for VoIP

Wired's Gadget Lab reports that new audio capabilities have been built into the new iPod Touch. The first generation Touch did have the necessary hardware to support voice in, so voice memo applications did not work, and neither did VoIP applications. But the new Touch has support for voice input, meaning you could run a VoIP app and make phone calls with the iPod when you have access to a WiFi hotspot. For some people, that might be good enough, and certainly a lot less expensive than an iPhone and the monthly AT&T service charges.
