Sprint Offers ZTE Peel to iPod touch Users with Data Plan

The ZTE Peel is a case for the iPad touch that allows the user to get a 3G data connection. At first, I thought that the thing would enable the touch user to make voice calls, but it seems the device is actually just a way to get 3G data onto the touch for mobile surfing and downloads.

You would be able to use VoIP services and messaging applications with the 3G connection. The ZTE Peel is a case that the touch slides into and the case has the hardware and support for the 3G connectivity. Since the ApplePeel 520 first surfaced there have been a bunch of users around the country that are very keen on getting their hands on the device, but availability is unknown, the ZTE Peel on the other hand is coing soon.

Today Sprint has announced that it will be offering ZTE Peel name. The device will feature 3G Verizon connectivity for mobile data and it will fit second and third generation iPod touch devices. The 3G connectivity means that you can get online for download apps or messaging from just about anywhere.

The ZTE Peel will land on the Sprint network starting on November 14 and will be offered via the web, direct sales and in Sprint stores. The Peel itself will cost $79.99 with taxes included. The service will run an additional $29.99 monthly, but the good news is that there is no data contract on the device. For your $30 monthly charge, you will get 1GB of data.

“ZTE PEEL unlocks the wonderful user interface and Web experience of Apple’s popular iPod touch and transforms it into a powerful mobile device using the Sprint 3G network,” said Fared Adib, vice president-Product Development. “When combined with Sprint’s 3G network, ZTE PEEL turns an iPod touch from a portable device limited by the availability of Wi-Fi to a mobility tool free to browse the Web and use applications anytime, anywhere while on Sprint’s 3G network.”

The ZTE Peel is compatible with Windows and Mac machines and can support two WiFi devices. Presumably, that means you can connect your netbook and notebook to the Peel and use the meager 1GB of data on other computers as well.
