For those who haven't heard of freedompop, basically if your area has it available, you can pay a $100 refundable deposit on the mobile hotspot device, and you get 500mb of 4G internet a month for free. You can pay extra per MB if you go over, or you can upgrade to a 4GB plan for $30 a month. I am starting out with the free 500mb plan. I spent this afternoon testing it out. I basically listened to several music streaming apps (pandora, turntable, songza) on my iPod, while I cycled for 3 hours and 52 miles. For me, the connection was reliable and steady. It didn't drop. Speed isnt terribly fast 1.5mb down, 250kb up. But its sufficient for most tasks. I even did a facetime call with my gf and both our audio was clear, and our video was smooth. I don't know how long the battery life is on a full charge, and how good the connection is in different areas or hours, but so far, so good. The device is thin, compact, and very, very light. You should be able to fit it, and the iPod Touch together in even the smallest of pockets comfortably. It has just about all the adjustable settings that a home router has. You can log into it from any web browser and configure it the same way. I don't know if the free 500MB a month allowance will be enough for me. If not, I may upgrade. I definitely recommend this for people who have freedompop available for their area and want to make their iPod Touch a poor mans iPhone.
