Sprint will launch the ZTE Peel, a specialized iPod touch case that offers 3G internet access, on November 14, according to a new report. Citing a screen shot of an internal Sprint document, Boy Genius Reports that the initial ZTE Peel offering will be compatible with the second- and third-generation iPod touch, will offer 3G access for up to two devices over Wi-Fi—one of which will be the iPod touch—and will sell for $80, with data access running $30/month for 1GB on a month-to-month basis. The Peel first appeared on the FCC’s website in July; it is unclear whether Sprint plans to launch a version compatible with the fourth-generation iPod touch.

Would seem to make more sense to have launched with a 4G touch version, but that aside, what the heck are they thinking with $30 for 1GB data? $30 gets you “unlimited” data with most carriers, so simply making it MTM isn’t a good enough deal in my opinion since you’re sort of in for the duration since it is an $80 accessory that doesn’t do anything else.

I kind of hope it works out since it might pave the way for better products and/or services, but this particular combo of hardware and service seems to miss the mark.
