FreedomPOP says the $99 sleeve they planned to offer that turns the iPod Touch into a WiMax-enabled phone continues to see delays at the FCC. In the meantime, they’re offering users who pre-ordered the device a few olive branches. FreedomPOP stated in January that the sleeve was seeing delays in testing at the FCC due to a unique antenna configuration that lays the WiMAX radio directly on top of the iPhone’s existing cellular radio, something that apparently stumped FCC engineers. To make up with users who pre-ordered the sleeves, FreedomPOP is offering them a FreedomPOP Photon mobile hotspot with 2 GB of free data with the potential of getting a free sleeve as well. As of January, FreedomPOP had complained that the delay had already cost the company in excess of $500,000.
