Just a couple of days ago, we reported that the HTC Inspire 4G for AT&T would launch on February 13. Aside from being the carrier's first 4G smartphone, it's also the first device to feature AT&T's Mobile Hotspot application. No pricing information was available for the service at first, but we have it now.

AT&T announced today that the feature will cost $45 per month for 4GB of data when bundled with the Data Pro data plan, which is required on all smartphones. Broken down, the Data Pro data plan costs $25 per month for 2GB and the Mobile Hotspot app adds another 2GB for $20 per month.

The 4GB applies to data consumed on all connected devices and overage fees will cost $10 per gigabyte.

In addition, AT&T said customers who are already on a tethering plan will automatically get the extra 2GB of data allowance at no additional charge.
