During a normal weekend in the Blogosphere, news is incredibly slow, and for the most part, nonexistent. Then you have weekends leading up to a wireless convention where major news leaks late on a Saturday night. In the past couple days alone, we’ve learned about five new devices rumored for different carriers in the US: the Nexus S 4G, Evo 3D, HTC View, LG G2x, and HTC Doubleshot.
With Sprint’s weak showing at CES, they’re going to have to do something drastic to catch everyone’s attention at CTIA. Thanks to a holding page and some anonymous tipsters, we have a pretty good idea where the company is headed. Not only is there a good chance Sprint will be carrying a WiMax enabled Nexus S, but they’re also rumored to use CTIA to show off a 3D version of the Evo (with bumped specs presumably), and their version of the HTC Flyer tablet, the HTC View.
T-Mobile’s “G” line series of devices is about to get interesting as they’re turning away from HTC yet again for their next installment. It was shocking to see the G label placed on the G-Slate from LG, but it should come as no surprise that the dual-core Optimus 2x has landed a G as well: the LG G2x. No word yet on how this is going to play out, but it’s interesting to note here that in the past, G devices have always been suited up with stock Android. Will the tradition carry on?
Last but not least in our weekend rumor roundup, the HTC Doubleshot. This one is a complete mystery. All we know is that TmoNews has it on good word that the Doubleshot is headed the Magenta way in phone form. We’ll certainly be keeping an eye on this one.
