FCC Reveals ZTE Peel On Sprint, For Apples Perhaps

FCC documents have revealed a curious new EV-DO device from ZTE headed for Sprint. The Peel, as FCC photos suggest it will be called, seems to be a carriage sled for a tablet style device like the iPod touch. The Peel does not seem to connect to its host device, and it seems to be a specially designed Wi-Fi hotspot device that could offer EV-DO networking to an iPod touch in a package that could be clamped to Apple's Wi-Fi-only iPod. The apparent naming also suggests a relationship; a Peel for an Apple device. The ZTE Peel has only been cleared for EV-DO Rev. 0 networking, Sprint's slower 3G service. It will use its own battery for power, and the Peel will charge via a microUSB port.

they sound good. when my computer is back up and running, I'm definitely gonna get the new album, and check out red sparrows.

Not to be a buzzkill, but what if Apple changes the iPod design?

In like... 3 months? Just saying...

Cool BUT

Why Rev0? Why not 3G/4G that would be EPIC! ๐Ÿ˜
It's only been cleared for Rev0 SO FAR. It probably will be cleared 3G/4G soon. It would be a waste of sprints time to only make it Rev0. Especially after all this push for 4G

And not even 4G--but c'mon! Give us Rev. A.

iPod Touch w/front facing camera combined with the "Peel"

This may equal a huge WIN.

Especially if the Peel works as a Wi-Fi hotspot. Talk about an incredible combo!!!
you wouldn't even need an iphone

Why wouldnt the customer just purchase an EVO... Whoop de doo, an ipod that doesn't have to use wireless, it won't text or make calls, you still have to carry two devices, right?

Really neat

I like innovation. Maybe everyone else will come up with something like this too.
