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

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?
