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.
The Peel, which will be priced at $80 and sold in Sprint's retail and online stores, works with second- and third-generation iPod touch devices. Sprint will charge $30 per month with no annual contract. 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.
