It was only a matter of time before someone made this idea a reality. According to iPodNN, Sprint is preparing a case to pair both a MiFi device and an iPod touch in a single design. The device, called the ZTE Peel, would allow the iPod touch and surrounding devices to connect via Wi-Fi to the mobile hotspot.
The FCC filing, which was uncovered late Wednesday, shows a few pictures of the device. And while we don't yet know the full details, the device may be able to charge via a mini USB port on the side. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that the iPod touch would attach to the device through the dock connector, which means you will still have to take the iDevice out to charge it.
There have been no rumors surrounding such a device from Sprint, and therefore there have been no leaked news regarding the device.
