The Peel 3200 is an ipod touch wifi hotspot that fits onto the back of an ipod touch (2nd and 3rd gen) and provides a wifi hotspot which is feed by Virgin Mobile Broadband 2 go.

This device uses the Sprint 3G(EVDO) network.

Only the $20/500meg-then-terminate plan is available, no other VM plans will work with this device at this time.

Will only fit the 2nd and 3rd generation of ipod touch, it will not physically fit the 4th generation of ipod touch. This device can be used as a standard hotspot (not attached to the device), however, the Mifi would give you access to all VM plans, while the Peel only gives access to the $20/500meg-then-terminate plan.
