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.
