    SERO *was* the original Everything Data plan... but for, literally, less than half the cost of the ED plan. Adding $10 GPS would put a SERO plan just over half the cost of the ED plan.

    What's so silly about SERO again? Oh yea... Sprint FORCES you to switch away from it if you want a bad ayse phone.

    But yea... 4G is overrated this year and will be next year too. You might be fine with "just keep using 3g"... but I will not buy a 4g device if there's no 4g in the air. I will not pay MORE for a device than I have to, a device that will drain my battery EVEN FASTER than a multitasking javascript OS.

    No. It's not up in the air. They will charge, because they have to. This is the NEW Sprint. They are getting in line with every other carrier, which is both good and bad for consumers at the same time.

    Well they are NOT going to charge any extra for 4g so that's definitely a step in the right direction

    I love my Palm Pre, but I'm seriously looking forward to that HTC Evo. I'm not too crazy about HTC's Sense UI overlay, but the phone sounds like a powerhouse. One I'd gladly have to fuel my workday.
    Tomorrow I'll be me again...

    WiFi?

    Faulty reasoning. You can get a Touch Pro 2, Blackberry Tour, HTC Snap, Samsung Intrepid, any QChat phone and probably some others on SERO and those are all Rev. A phones.

    I'm being sorely tempted by the Evo, but depending on Sprint's marketing decisions, the 4g might actually be a dealbreaker for me.

    Where I live, I'm lucky to get 3g EVDO in some locations; most of the time I'm either chugging along on 1xRTT or using WiFi. If Sprint only offers 4g-capable phones on a more expensive 4g plan, it's not worth it to me even if the phone has other features that I like.

    So, bottom line, absolutely I'd spring for a WebOS phone that had the hardware features of the Evo but was missing 4g. I'm not going to benefit from 4g during the life of my next phone anyway.

    But would you want any of those phones? Are they really considered consumer smartphones like the Pre or Evo? It's not faulty..Sprint raised prices on data plans and required them on newer smartphones.

    Folks, there will be NO price increase for 3G/4G phones. Same ED plans as the Pre, same price.

    While not announced, it is nearly certain that Sprint will charge for the ability to use the WiFi hotspot feature just as they have for all of the other phones that officially supported tethering. Considering that their 5GB 3G/ Unlimited 4G datacard plan is $60/month I would reason they will price the add-on for the Evo at $30/month. Again, this would be an optional service for those who wanted it.

    On the hw side, Palm doesn't have an excuse to update the Pre. 4G to me isn't completely needed. I'm still wanting to see battery performance on any 4G device. Also, will it suffer from the same type of battery hit when a 4G signal is NOT available (3g -> 1x battery hits).

    I'm still not set on single task phones. After true multi-tasking, it would be difficult for me to go backwards.

    Throw WebOS onto that type of EVO spec'd hw and I'm sold. Otherwise, I'll wait and see what Palm unveils later this yr.

    If true, good news, although I wistfully note that it might tip the balance for me to jump to Android to get my hands on this hardware. Can you cite a source for this info?

    I happen to live in an area that supports 4g so... No I would not purchase a non 4g palm product. If Palm comes out with a 4g smartphone, then I will consider upgrading to it as long as the hardware is solid. If it feels like the Pre? No.
