3G-compatible iPod touch case hits FCC

A new 3G-equipped iPod touch case has appeared on the FCC’s website, Engadget reports. Made by ZTE, the Peel 3G Router sports openings for the touch’s headphone jack, volume, and power buttons, and uses CDMA2000 technology.

There doesn’t appear to be a Dock connector, so it is possible that the Peel 3G is simply a MiFi-like portable hotspot shaped to hold an iPod touch. This particular model has Sprint logos on the front and rear; Sprint has yet to make any official announcement regarding the product.
