With just a week to go until the launch of the HTC EVO 4G, Sprint have offered their Launch Guide so that we can learn more from the new device. This latest Android handset has a little surprise for consumers – free mobile hotspot for a month.
This is a fantastic loophole, one that goes in consumer’s favor for a change. This feature allows your handset to become a WiMax hotspot for up to 8 devices, but you will need to use it on 4G and not 3G. This service normally costs $29.99 per month.
According to Thomas Ricker from Engadget, Sprint is aware of this loophole and plans to resolve it sometime in July, after then you will need to activate the Sprint Mobile Hotspot add-on. Just imagine how much this will cost Sprint, As the HTC EVO 4G is expected to shift in huge numbers?
We wonder if the carrier has caused this loophole intentionally, customers will get used to the service and will not want to give it up, which they will then have to sign up and pay $29.99 per month for — that’s on top of their tariff charges. View some HTC EVO 4G accessories, which will be launched just after the handset launches.
