Case Enables 3G Calling and Data on a Apple iPod Touch; Plus Creates Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspots
ZTE PEEL enhances the experience for Apple iPod touch users, unshackling users from Wi-Fi hotspots and allowing them to connect to the Internet wherever and whenever they want on the nationwide Sprint 3G network. ZTE PEEL cradles the second and third generation iPod touch so that users can carry one seamless device at all times. This portable, secure, and truly wireless device is the first of its kind to be added to Sprint's portfolio of Mobile Broadband devices. With universal Wi-Fi compatibility and support for up to two Wi-Fi enabled devices to be connected at the same, users will appreciate the flexibility and convenience of virtually anywhere, anytime connection. Customers simply slide their iPod touch (touch-screen face out) into ZTE PEEL, press down on both sides until it clicks into place, and then press the power button located on the back of ZTE PEEL to connect to Sprint's 3G network.
