FreedomPop today announced the availability of a new device, the HTC EVO 4G. FreedomPop is selling the EVO 4G for $99 with no contract. FreedomPop also said that it will accept a broader range of old Sprint devices on its network with its "bring your own phone" option. FreedomPop is an MVNO that uses Sprint's network. Rather than use traditional voice, FreedomPop's voice calls are sent over the data network through VoIP technology. FreedomPop offers 200 voice minutes, 500 texts, and 500MB of data free each month, and recently introduced a plan that includes unlimited texting and calling for $10.99 a month. Earlier this year FreedomPop announced that it is transitioning from Sprint's WiMAX network to Sprint's LTE network, but it is so far offering only one LTE-capable product (a mobile hotspot). FreedomPop said that it will offer LTE-capable smartphones later this year, though price points will be closer to $200. The EVO 4G uses WiMAX.
