Cult of Mac has confirmed that your iPod Touch can support Voice of IP, or VoIP, as it contains the necessary hardware to make free or low-cost phones over its wi-fi connection.

After the introduction of the new 5 wires connected to the the iPod Touch’s headphone jack, instead of the previous four, it now allows an external microphone included with some headsets. This comes after the introduction of a new iPod headphones, that has a microphone included with it.

Of course, the SDK for the iPhone and the iPod Touch does not allow you make VoIP applications using the 3G and EDGE networks, but apparently using it via the Wi-Fi is fine, now we need to find a suitable app.
