Submission + - Sprint HTC EVO 4G Release Date Confirmed, $199 (engadget.com)

Chameleon Man writes: The first 4G phone ever to be released, the HTC EVO 4G announced back in March, has finally come with a release date of June 4th. Along with the release date, Sprint has provided information on phone plans and pricing. From Engadget: 'Unfortunately, there's a downside to all this: customers will be paying a mandatory (as confirmed to us by Sprint reps) $10 per month "Premium Data add-on" on top of their plan — ostensibly for the privilege of enjoying WiMAX when they're in a Sprint 4G market — and the 8-device WiFi hotspot feature runs an extra $29.99 a month, which Sprint is quick to point out is half what you'd pay for a dedicated mobile broadband account.'

In 4G areas, it might be a formidable option for anyone who hates their ISP...*ehem* Comcast *ehem*.
