Sprint's HTC EVO 4G Adds Video Chat, Available June 4
Sprint today announced that the forthcoming HTC EVO 4G will be one of the first handsets in the U.S. to support live video chats. The application for the video chats is being provided by Qik, which already offers a live video streaming service for smartphones. Sprint did not say if that feature would incur extra charges on top of the required data plan. It can also handle simultaneous voice and data sessions in 4G markets, and can stream HD video content over the wireless network. According to Sprint, it will be the first mobile product capable of watching YouTube videos in "high quality." The EVO 4G will require a $70/mo Everything Unlimited plan. WiMax 4G access will incur an additional $10 per month, and is mandatory for certain 4G devices, no matter if there is WiMax coverage or not. Customers can also choose to make the EVO 4G hotspot capable for up to eight devices for an additional $30 per month. It will be available on June 4 for $199.
YouTube Live Streaming from Mobile Devices Coming Soon
YouTube today said users will soon be able to stream video live from their mobile phones. The video site already supports live streaming from PCs, and YouTube first promised to bring live streaming to phones last summer.
YouTube to Enable Mobile Live Video Streaming
Google plans to add live video streaming to its YouTube mobile apps. Google says live streaming will be incorporated into the application's core and won't require a separate app or download.
Facebook Adds Social Functions to Live Video
Facebook today announced two new features for live video that should make it more interactive and social. First, there's Live Chat With Friends.
Sprint Adds High-Quality Video Option to Unlimited Plan
Sprint today moved to appease its video-loving customers with an add-on that provides unlimited HD video streaming. The Unlimited Freedom Premium plan costs $80 per month for a single line or $140 for two lines and includes 1080p HD high-quality video, music streaming at 1.5Mbps, and gaming at up to 8Mbps.
(this is if it is true that the $10 premium charge is correct)
I thought they would offer it for free like VZW Palm Pre.
It is also 3g and capped. the evo's is 4g and unlimited
Red offering that free feature on any of their other handsets do you? Then why would Sprint give it away on their flagship device?
$69.99 (unlit everything cell2cell)

$30 for mobile hotspot for 8 devices (!!!)
$69.99 unlit talk
$30 for smartphone data 3G
$20 for unlit text
$30 for 5GB of tethering (free on the Pre ONLY)
They're going to force the $10 "premium data" on everyone, even if they don't have 4G in their area!!!

Voice & Data while on 4G - bye bye AT&T
Besides, they don't say that because T-Mobile already supports voice + data.
And by the time they get a sizable footprint, chances are they'll b...
Thanks for dropping the ball, Verizon.
$10 removed data cap... on 3G as well as 4G.
Update: According to Phone Scoop, that $10 premium add-on has the benefit of no data cap for either WiMAX or 3G connections. Since we're on the subject of updates, have you seen our bevy of new EVO 4G videos yet?
I'd pay for no data cap on 3G... and wait for 4G to hit where I live.
