Sprint Evo 4G Will Have Two-Way Video Chat, Goes On Sale June 4th For $200

"It's official: the Sprint Evo 4G will be on sale for $200 (with contract) on June 4th—even earlier than we thought. It'll feature two-way video chat on 3G and 4G networks, which makes sense given the forward-facing camera.

While the pricing and release aren't surprising, we learned a little more than we did abotu the two-way chat. Apparently it will run Qik—a third party app—which means that you'd likely be able to make cellphone-to-computer calls, which has a tremendous amount of appeal.

Other pricing details that have emerged foretell a bit of a pain: that WiMax is going to run you an extra $10 a month as a "Premium Data add-on," and while I'm still excited about using the Evo 4G as a hotspot for up to eight devices, I'm less so after hearing that it's going to cost an extra $30 a month to do so."

The story is too old to be commented.
