You’re quite fond of your iPod touch. But often it would be nice to have wireless capability without being tied a WiFi hotspot. Have a look at the ZTE Peel 3200 available from Virgin Mobile. It’s a case for your iPod touch that gives you a 3G data connection. $29.99 plus no-contract $20 for 500 Mb per month with data through the Sprint 3G Network. It can also act as a mobile hotspot for one additional WiFi-enabled device, like a laptop. The fine print: compatible with 2nd and 3rd gen iPod touch only, but curiously NOT 4th gen. Great idea, but even my kids have the 4th gen. I suppose you could pick up a used 2nd or 3rd gen for less than retail and outfit it with this…?
