FreedomPop unveiled sleeves for certain smartphones and other devices that add 4GWiMAX connectivity several months ago. The company has a version of its sleeve available for the iPhone 4 and 4S. The problem is that the sleeve has been stuck at the FCC while the FCC conducts rigorous testing.
According to FreedomPop, the delay at the FCC has cost it $550,000 so far. The design of the FreedomPop case puts the case's 4G radio over the top of the iPhone cellular radio. Apparently, the FCC has never tested device that uses the setup and therefore is rigorously testing the device for any issues.
FreedomPop says that it has 5000 of its iPhone 4/4S sleeves setting and U.S. Customs right now. The company expects to get the FCC approvals and need to in the next few weeks and the devices will start shipping immediately.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
