Earlier today we got out eyes on an image touting the iDEN-ready Motorola i1 getting priced at $149.99 on contract for Sprint. This wasn’t all that surprising, as Sprint was actually what everyone expected before the Sprint-owned Boost Mobile went and got the word out that the pre-paid phone carrier would also be offering this one up.

Now an internal screenshot by way of Engadget is giving us a bit more info on exactly when we will be seeing the i1 on Sprint, and it is looking like as soon as June 6th. This is when the phone will be available by direct ship, anyway. On June 11th the phone should be available in store.

For whatever it may lack in power and specs it makes up for in the “should be totally hard to destroy” category. I kind of want to get my hands on one just to beat the crap out of it and then go “Hey look! It still works AND it runs Android!”
