Sprint has been mum about its 2011 lineup throughout this whole year until yesterday, when we finally got a break and caught wind of not 1 but 3 upcoming Sprint Android devices - the Nexus S 4G, the EVO 3D, and the EVO View tablet. The rumors were dropped to both Engadget and AndroidAndMe by an anonymous tipster, but both sites seemed confident in their sources, meaning it wasn't the first time the same credible tipster provided reliable information.

If you are sensitive to unconfirmed rumors and have trouble believing anonymous tipsters, even you will be pleased with what these pretty darn good hints planted around Sprint's own website. Here is what a regular 404 Not Found page looks like on Sprint.com:

However, if you hit up http://now.sprint.com/nexus, http://now.sprint.com/evo3d, or http://now.sprint.com/evoview, the error page goes away, and the link either redirects to the homepage (for the EVO 3D and the EVO View) or returns one of these instead (for the Nexus S 4G):

If this is not a definitive sign of things to come, I don't know what is. Unfortunately, no specs or pictures have been discovered yet, but at least now we got the product names squared away with relatively high confidence. CTIA (where Aaron, David, and myself will be heading in exactly 2 weeks), you can't come fast enough.

Update: GoodAndEVO discovered a trademark filing by HTC for the name EVO View 4G. Convinced yet?
