Just because Sprint lost out on the iPhone 4 and iPad doesn’t mean the carrier can’t compete with AT&T and Verizon. If what we’re hearing from Engadget is true, the nation’s third largest wireless player hopes to make a big splash at CTIA with three new devices. Here’s a quick rundown of the rumors.
HTC EVO 3D: There aren’t many details on this handset, but it sounds like HTC will be adding a glasses-free 3D display and 3D video recording to its high-end EVO Android phone. We weren’t blown away with this effect on the LG Optimus 3D, which we saw at Mobile World Congress, so we hope the 3D on this handset feels like more than a gimmick.
HTC EVO View: This Android-powered slate could be the U.S. version of the Flyer, complete with pen input. While some people are down on the fact that this 7-inch tablet doesn’t yet run Android 3.0, we think HTC’s innovation makes up for it. Check out our hands-on video here.
Samsung Nexus S 4G: There are a lot of things we like about the Nexus S for T-Mobile, including the curved design, Super AMOLED display, Gingerbread software enhancements, and future-proof features like NFC. The Sprint version looks like it will add 4G capability via Mobile WiMax. We just hope that this version also adds a 720p camcorder, too.
Will these rumors pan out? You’ll find out March 22nd.
