FCC delay has proven very costly

FreedomPop unveiled sleeves for certain smartphones and other devices that add 4G WiMAX 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.
