CES 2012: AT&Ts PS Vita 3G data plans have no contracts, costs $14.99 or $25

Sony’s exclusive data provider for Vita finally spells out the pricing

Remember at E3 2011 when Kaz Hirai announced excitedly that the PS Vita’s exclusive wireless provider in the US was AT&T? Remember the less than excited response coming from people probably used to AT&T’s iPhone service? Both parties have been pretty silent since then, but with CES just beginning and the Vita poised to launch in a little over a month, AT&T finally gave us specifics on just how you’ll get data on Sony’s 3G version of its handheld.

The month-to-month plans don’t require any contract commitment, and come in two flavors: $14.99 for 250MB and $25 for 2GB. No details were given on just what happens if you go over that amount, but the prices (while not cheap) fall in line with similar AT&T data plans for phones. Since the 3G version of the hardware is already $50 more than the Wi-Fi model, do these prices seem fair, or do they make you want to pre-order the Wi-Fi version instead?
