USA network, Sprint Nextel has started selling the country's first WiMAX based mobile phone - the HTC EVO 4G.
­The smartphone  will cost $199.99 with a two-year service agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate (taxes excluded) with a new line activation or eligible upgrade.

"With HTC EVO 4G's advanced features, like video chat and 3G/4G capability, customers may find themselves using a lot more data, so a plan with unlimited use is key," said Carrie MacGillivray, program manager at industry market research firm IDC. "Customers are looking for simplicity in their voice and data plans. Unlimited plans offer new EVO users the flexibility to use the device as they desire without any worry about exceeding a predetermined limit."

HTC EVO 4G customers can pay $69.99 for Sprint's Everything Data 450 plan, plus the $10 Premium Data add-on, totaling $79.99 per month for unlimited Web, texting and calling on the Sprint Network. An optional charge of just $29.99 per month turns on HTC EVO 4G's mobile hotspot, connecting up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices.
