Sprint is out dominate CTIA as they booked 2.5 hours of spotlight possibly for their new smartphones and tablet line-up.

An anonymous tipster sent word over at Engadget that Sprint’s cooking up something considering they’ve booked a whopping 2.5 hours of spotlight over at the CTIA later this month. According to the he-who-must-not-be-named source, the carrier will be launching Samsung’s Nexus S 4G and the EVO 3D Smartphones, and the EVO View tablet.

There are no further details of what these smartphones and tablet has to offer except for the obvious. Nexus S 4G will undoubtedly have 4G functionality, the EVO 3D will be a 3D enabled smartphone, while the EVO View tablet, we can only assume it will be faster or equally fast as the upcoming tablets with your usual mix of cameras, nice CPUs, impressive screen displays, and so on.

If rumors prove to be true, Sprint’s presentation at the CTIA will be a nice rebound after a dismal performance last CES 2011 as the carrier only unveiled the EVO Shift 4G smartphone. Looks like all eyes will fixate on Sprint for the whole 2.5 hours, let’s hope they won’t fail to impress.
