There's no doubt that the HTC EVO 4G is stealing the show on the Sprint side, but the nation's third largest carrier isn't backing down when it comes to device launches.  To that end, our Sprint tipster shot us over a screenshot today containing launch dates for the Samsung Restore and Motorola i1.

The Samsung Restore (left) is slated for launch on June 4th (same day as the EVO, if you're keeping track), and sports a full QWERTY keyboard, MP3 player, 2.0-megapixel camera, and eco-friendly packaging.  It will be available in "Midnight" and "Limeaid."  The Motorola i1, announced at CTIA in March, offers a 3.1-inch HVGA display, Android 1.5, Wi-Fi, a 5.0-megapixel camera, and Direct Connect.  The phone is gearing up for a June 20th Direct Ship launch, which means that stores should get them shortly thereafter.

For those that are looking past the EVO 4G, does the Samsung Restore or Motorola i1 interest you?  Discuss!
