Sprint to introduce new tablet data plans alongside the HTC EVO View 4G?Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Sprint will be launching its first 4G-enabled Android tablet in the HTC EVO View 4G later this month, and with the arrival of its first WiMAX slate, the No. 3 carrier is rumored to also be introducing new 4G tablet data plans. According to a document leaked to the folks at Android Police, the new plans break down like this:
- $19.99 for 1GB of 3G data and no 4G data, $0.05/MB overage
- $44.99 for 3GB of 3G data and unlimited 4G data, $0.05/MB overage
- $59.99 for 5GB of 3G data and unlimited 4G data, $0.05/MB overage
- $89.99 for 10GB of 3G data and unlimited 4G data, $0.05/MB overage
The document also mentions "Bundled MRC" plan pricing, which will save a customer $10 per month on a 3GB or higher plan if he or she is also signed up for a qualifying smartphone data plan. Unfortunately, it's not clear exactly when the new offerings will go live, but it's expected that they'll be made available sometime around the launch of the EVO View 4G. If accurate, this new pricing seems reasonable considering that users in a WiMAX coverage area will get access to unlimited 4G data with most of the plans. It's kind of a bummer that the lowest data tier doesn't include any 4G access, but I suppose that's the price you pay to ride the 4G airwaves. Are any of you out there planning on picking up an EVO View 4G from Sprint on June 24th?
