4G HTC Flyer owners, and soon other tablet owners in the U.S., could be getting the best non-long-term data plans with Sprint

In a likely effort to appease tablet owners, the third largest cellular provider in the United States has announced Monday a new plan targeting HTC EVO View users. The plan includes no long-term commitment, but is instead based on daily, weekly and monthly passes. Users under the plan can access Sprint’s 3G and 4G networks regardless of which pass they choose.

According to the official blog announcement, Sprint will offer “more data at the same prices as Verizon and AT&T." The Day Pass, Week Pass and Month Pass will cost $15, $30 and $50 with 150MB, 500MB and 1.5GB limits, respectively.

The Sprint plan is now live for HTC EVO View owners who have purchased the tablet at full price without a monthly mobile broadband plan. The network is allowing current owners a free Day Pass for a limited time.

Unfortunately, the service is available only for HTC EVO View users for now, although there are already plans to include support for additional mobile devices later in the year. Sprint is likely testing the waters with the HTC tablet first before going full force on the service.

The 7-inch HTC EVO View is the Sprint 4G variant of the HTC Flyer and was formally announced at CTIA 2011 in late March. The device made its official launch on the network early June.
