Sprint to introduce 3G connectivity for iPod touch devices

Sprint (NYSE:S) and Chinese vendor ZTE will introduce on Sunday the ZTE Peel, a sleeve that will provide Sprint 3G access to Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPod touch devices.

Customers slide their iPod touch (touch-screen face out) into the Peel, press down on both sides until it clicks into place and then press the power button located on the back of the Peel to connect to Sprint's 3G network.
