Remember that iPod Touch case, the ZTE Peel, that we told you about in September which converted the MP3 player into a full blow phone? Well, it looks like it’s now heading to Sprint on November 14th and will cost $79.99.
At the time of our posting we weren’t sure on the all the details and we didn’t even know if the Chinese case would be picked up by a US carrier let alone make it State side. We now know that the case, at least the Sprint version, won’t support voice calls (not directly at least), but will provide a 3G data connection to 2nd and 3rd Gen iPod Touches (4th Gen iPod Touches are presumably not supported). Sprint customers will pay $30/month (no contract required) and receive up to 1GB of data per month.
It’s not entirely clear, but if the screen captures are to be believed it will have a Hotspot function providing Internet access up to two devices. So, if this turns out to be true, this could be a good resolve for those of you looking to connect to the Net on your computer any where you roam. It’s also worth noting that there are many iPod Touch applications that support VoIP calls over 3G.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
