Sprint iPod Touch case to bring 3G connectivity

A Sprint (NYSE:S) device capable of bringing 3G connectivity to the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPod Touch has passed FCC testing.

According to Intomobile, the Sprint Peel case is an iDevice accessory sleeve/case manufactured by ZTE that appears to attach to the back of the iPod Touch to enable connectivity via Sprint's EV-DO network. The Peel essentially doubles as a sleeve that also works as a portable WiFi hotspot.

Such a capability brings about an interesting possibility, Intomobile notes. Imagine an iPod Touch, a microphone and a Skype app completely replacing a mobile phone. And once Apple updates the iPod Touch with iOS 4.0, the updated Skype app could accept incoming Skype calls.
