Those Extra 10 Bucks/Month For HTC EVO 4G Don't Just Get You All-You-Can-Eat 4G But 3G Too

If you've been thinking of getting the newest addition to the Sprint family on June 4th, the HTC EVO 4G, you're probably aware of the new $10 charge that Sprint will be requiring of you.

However, the situation isn't nearly as bad as it sounds. In fact, you may be getting much more than you thought you were paying for.

Under the heading of "Worry-Free Pricing" in their press release, they say it plain and simple:

In order to provide the best experience, HTC EVO 4G will use Sprint's industry-leading Everything Data or Business Advantage Messaging and Data plans that include unlimited Web, texting and calling on the Sprint Network to every mobile in America with Any Mobile, AnytimeSM.

Watch Sprint CEO Dan Hesse's Keynote And The Rest Of The Sprint EVO 4G Event Videos

Thanks to our friends at phandroid.com (hey Rob!), we can now check out what was actually going on at yesterday's special 4G event Sprint held.

Of course, we now know that it was centered around EVO 4G, its pricing (with some extra gotchas), release date, and features. But how did it all go down?

Rob recorded 4 videos on his HD camcorder (nice investment, Rob), starting with Sprint's CEO Dan Hesse's keynote speech announcing EVO 4G and going into the presentations that followed.

Best Buy Starts Preorders For HTC EVO 4G, Effective Immediately

Best Buy announced minutes ago that the HTC EVO 4G, which was officially introduced by Sprint earlier today, is available for preorder from Best Buy stores effective immediately.

It looks like the preorder is available strictly at Best Buy retail locations and not online on BestBuy.com, at least for now.

The email makes no mention of the mandatory $10 monthly EVO usage fee that we reported on earlier, which is a sure recipe for some surprised and possibly not very happy customers about to head to Best Buy tomorrow.

WTF - Sprint To Charge $10/Month “You Get To Use An EVO 4G” Fee

After wiping the drool off our screens long enough to actually read Sprint’s press release for the EVO 4G, we found ourselves a bit put off by the 10$/month ‘Premium Data Charge’. Here’s the relevant excerpt from the release:

A $10 per month Premium Data add-on will apply allowing customers to take advantage of a richer data experience than ever before.

The way that the $10/month fee is presented in the press release seems to imply that it would only be applicable to those who can take advantage of Sprint’s 4G network, which is still in the process of rolling out in many parts of the country.

[Updated] Mark Your Calendars: Sprint Officially Announces HTC EVO 4G For $199, Coming June 4th! Mandatory "Premium" Charge Of $10/mo (booo!), Mobile Hotspot - $29.99/mo

Tonight in New York City, Sprint unveils a whopper, and it has nothing (or very little, anyway) to do with Disney's new film Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

It has everything, however, to do with the newest Android bit of gold: the release date of the HTC EVO 4G, the first 4G phone on Sprint's 4G wireless network.

Until now, all we've seen is a teaser on the phone's home page indicating that it will be available summer 2010 and some unconfirmed rumors about June 6th release date and $199.

Sprint Follows Verizon, Snubs The Nexus One In Favor Of The EVO 4G

It seems as though carriers that were lined up for the Nexus One are dropping like flies. First comes the news that Verizon has chosen to go forward with the HTC Incredible as opposed to Google's own branded device, and now Sprint has dropped the Nexus One too.

Michelle Leff Mermelstein, Sprint's Consumer Products spokeswoman, told Gizmodo that the reason behind the decision was the "upcoming availability of the award-winning Evo 4G," as the two devices were not so different (I had to link that!).

Reminder: Sprint Offers A $100 Credit For Customers Porting Their Numbers From Other Carriers

Have you been dreaming of picking up an HTC EVO 4G the day it comes out sometime in June (I have) but are currently using another carrier, and maybe even stuck in a contract with them?

Or may you've wanted to switch to Sprint because of their amazing Anymobile Anytime plans that offer unlimited minutes to any carrier's mobile numbers - not just Sprint (yeah, my last bill was 6 anytime minutes)?

Clear Reveals Two New Wi-Max Equipped Android Phones To Be Released In 2010

Corporate press releases are usually pretty boring. Corporate press releases about quarterly earnings? Well, they’re a one way ticket to snoozeville for sure, but every now and then you glean a little nugget of information that rewards you for slogging through the PR babble. In this case, Sprint’s 4G partner Clear has let slip that we can expect both HTC and Samsung to release Android powered handsets with Wi-Max on board by the end of this year.

Evo 4G Available For Pre-Order At The Shack Later This Month?

I spent about 15 minutes trying to figure out how I could open this post with a joke about Radio Shack’s abysmal name change to ‘The Shack’, but figured it’s well trodden ground at this point, so let’s just skip to the juicy bits: it appears that the gents over at Phandroid have been tipped off by an employee at the aforementioned Shack that Sprint’s Evo 4G should be available for pre-order by the end of this month.

Oprah Gets Her Hands On An Extremely Sexy Looking HTC EVO 4G, We Nearly Die Of Envy

Probably the most awaited phone of 2010 - the super sexy HTC EVO 4G (formerly HTC Supersonic) made an appearance today on a none other than an Oprah Winfrey show.

Sprint let her play with the device and we got to catch a quick glimpse of it, thanks to fanboydestroyer from Hawtwired.com (this is the proper credit which was apparently mishandled by some other site owners) who recorded this video from his TV:

The curves, the looks - June can't come fast enough.
