Freedom Sleeve Rocket adds 4G to 4th-gen iPod touch
FreedomPop has announced the Freedom Sleeve Rocket ($99), a case that turns the fourth-generation iPod touch into a device that can use 4G wireless data, in addition to acting as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to eight devices. The Freedom Sleeve Rocket allows for a minimum of 500 MB of free wireless data per month — the device uses Clearwire’s 4G network and is scheduled to expand on Sprint’s 4G LTE network next year.
While using data on FreedomPop’s network, the Freedom Sleeve Rocket allows the iPod touch to stream video and make VOIP calls without a contract. FreedomPop claims the sleeve can deliver speeds up to 10x faster than current 3G speeds available on the iPhone4/4S. The Freedom Sleeve Rocket is only available for the fourth-generation iPod touch, as no other devices are mentioned. It ships today.
