HTC Droid Incredible tethering to cost $10 or $25 per month

One aspect of the HTC Droid Incredible that people seem to be quite interested in is the official Mobile Broadband Connect utility found on the device. You will need a cable to connect your HTC Incredible to your PC and now we see the available pricing options for this new Android device. The two options are $10 or $25 per month for 5GB of data and depend on the voice and email plan you have setup with your device.

One aspect of the HTC Droid Incredible that people seem to be quite interested in is the official Mobile Broadband Connect utility found on the device. You will need a cable to connect your HTC Incredible to your PC and now we see the available pricing options for this new Android device. As you can see there is a $5/month promotion going on between 15 April and 15 July. The two options are $10 or $25 per month for 5GB of data and depend on the voice and email plan you have setup with your device.

For business users I think the $25/month is right at the edge of the acceptable level for cost, but still personally think that is a bit too much. The Mobile Broadband WiFi Hotspot feature on my Palm Pre Plus was $40/month, but is now FREE. I think the service should be free for all devices and the carriers should let you access the 5GB limit you pay for in any way you want. If you are paying for monthly data up to 5GB why should it matter how you are using that data? I think $10 is the limit I would pay for this monthly data access and having it free on my Palm Pre Plus is a major reason I use this device on Verizon Wireless.

Thanks to Todd at Mobile Content Today for the heads-up on the Verizon plan page.
