It was just yesterday that we saw an intriguing case for jailbroken iPod Touches that promised to give it the ability to make phone calls and send text messages.

Who knew Sprint was planning something similar? It’s a case called the ZTE Peel 3200, and as near as anyone can figure out, it’s a mobile hotspot that would wrap around an iPod Touch and give it constant access over WiFi to Sprint’s 3G network.

Pretty swank. Combine this with Skype and iOS 4.0’s background VoIP abilities and there’s not a lot missing. If the price is right, this case might end up proving preferable to a two-year AT&T contract.
