The Nexus S pure Google experience may be getting a new 4G WiMAX version from Sprint at CTIA. Sprint will also unveil the new Evo 3D and the Evo View, a tablet. Sprint has invited the press to a two and a half hour event at CTIA.
The Nexus S 4G, with the latest version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, is expected to be announced by Sprint at CTIA. The names of the smartphones and tablet were discovered by observing URL names on the Sprint website - now.sprint.com/nexus, now.sprint.com/evoview and now.sprint.com/evo3D, which now show error messages.
If we go by specs of the Nexus S from T-Mobile, the specs we can expect from the Nexus S 4G
include a brilliant Super AMOLED (800 x 400) touchscreen, snappy
performance, at least a 1GHz Samsung Humming Bird, at least a
5-megapixel camera, front-facing VGA camera, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. We
don't know if it will have the curved screen.
The best thing about the Nexus S line of smartphones is that Android updates are the fastest available. For example, the Nexus S was the first to get the latest update to Android 2.3.3 with NFC, while some Galaxy S smartphones, such as the Samsung Fascinate and Continuum have not gotten updates to Android 2.2 Froyo.
The 3D aspect of the Evo 3D is very appealing for speculation because Samsung reported that it does not need a 3D smartphone. The only announced 3D Android smartphone is the LG Optimus 3D. Some contend, however, that it is a 3D version of the HTC Evo 4G.
The LG Optimus 3D is loaded with a 1GHz OMAP dual-core processor,
4.3-inch WVGA glasses-free stereoscopic display, and HDMI-out port. It
also offers 3D video recording and playback. It runs Android 2.2 at
launch with an upgrade coming to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. See video demo of the LG Optimus 3D.
We suspected that it may be launched in the United States at some point because we have been seeing ads for the LG Optimus 3D while surfing from a U.S. IP address.
