One of the neatest aspects of the HTC Evo is its ability to act as a wireless hotspot for up to eight devices. 4G service is fast enough that a hotspot set-up like that could be extremely useful. In fact, for a normal person, access to a 4G service could very well be all the Internet they ever need. Of course, the Evo's badass hotspot service doesn't come for free.

Engadget has received word that Sprint “upper management” has settled upon Sunday, June 13 as the Day of Reckoning (the launch day for the Evo). A weekend launch is kind of odd, but stranger things have happened. They've also heard that access to the hotspot feature will require paying for a $10-$20/month plan add-on.

That's kind of a pain. Is an extra $20/month worthwhile to you? Or can you live without turning your Evo into a wireless hub?
