I don’t know why I titled this story as if I am surprised, but I did. Sprint is said to be showing a considerable amount of new goods at CTIA – the same show where they introduced the original HTC EVO 4G. That makes the show historically big for Sprint and new rumors are suggesting that history will repeat itself.

Firstly, a Nexus S 4G is reportedly in the works. It’s exactly what it sounds like – a Nexus S with 4G radios.  It’s the high-end stock experience Sprint fans have been dying for as the Samsung offerings came up a bit short in the “oh my god this phone is totally awesome” tests.

Secondly, that long-rumored EVO 4G sequel looks to be a 3D-filled affair: Sprint’s said to be calling it the EVO 3D. It’s a trend that – as far as smartphones go – was quietly sparked by Sharp and further ignited by LG. We’d assume HTC will be the manufacturers behind the sequel, but who’s to say LG isn’t? They’ve already got the Optimus 3D ready for adoption and Sprint never said that the EVO series would be exclusive to HTC. (Don’t take that as law, though. I’m just speculating at this point.)

Finally, a device called the EVO View will supposedly be shown off. Its angle? It’s a tablet by HTC and is supposed to be Sprint’s version of the Flyer that was introduced at MWC. CTIA is just around the corner (about two weeks to be exact) and even if all of this isn’t 100% true, we expect Sprint to come up with just as big a slate of announcements. [Engadget]
