First 4G Phone Coming Soon From Sprint

PCWorld: First 4G Phone Coming Soon From Sprint

Sprint which operates 4G WiMax networks in several major U.S. cities will release the HTC EVO 4G phone on June 4. It can make phone calls and also send and receive data over the Internet at speeds rivaling wireline broadband services. The price is $200.

“Sprint’s first 4G phone will be released on June 4, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse revealed in a special event Wednesday. The much-anticipated HTC EVO 4G will be priced at $200 with a new 2-year contract ($450 unsubsidized).

EVO 4G users will pay a minimum of $70 per month (with Sprint’s “Everything Data Plan), as well as an additional $10 per month for 4G coverage (dubbed the “Premium Data Add-on”). The additional $10/month charge will be mandatory for all EVO 4G users, regardless of whether they live in a 4G coverage area or not. There is a benefit, though–according to Phone Scoop, the extra $10 premium data add-on means no data cap for either 3G or WiMAX (some of Sprint’s 3G-only services retain a 5GB data limit).”
