The data plans will give Evo View users access to both Sprint's EV-DO network and Clearwire's (NASDAQ:CLWR) mobile WiMAX network, and break down as follows:

--Day pass: $14.99 for 150 MB of on-network usage in a 24-hour period (includes 50 MB off-network roaming usage)
--Week pass: $29.99 for 500 MB of on-network usage in a 7-day period (includes 100 MB off-network roaming usage)
--Month pass: $49.99 for 1.5 GB of usage in a 30-day period (includes 150 MB off-network roaming usage)

Sprint said the new data options are available to both enterprise and consumers customers, and that there will be no overage charges for the plans; when users reach the data limit, data access will be cut off. The new plans will be available immediately to customers who purchase an Evo View at full price without a monthly mobile broadband plan. Sprint also said the new plans offer more value than comparable prepaid data offerings from Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) and AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T).

Sprint launched the Evo View in June along with two new options for its traditional mobile broadband tablet plans: a tier of 10 GB of data for $90, and access to unlimited WiMAX data on the plans starting at 3 GB of EV-DO data usage and up.
