Motorola PHOTON 4G, Samsung Conquer 4G set to arrive in July in Sam's Club

The Motorola PHOTON 4G for Sprint is a diamond-shaped dual-core gem in Sprint's lineup, but the powerful handset lacked a specific release date. A screenshot of upcoming Sprint launches obtained by Android Central reveals that the Photon 4G is coming in July, along with the WiMAX-touting Samsung Conquer 4G, and both are coming Wal-Mart's membership-online retail warehouse Sam's Club.
The latter has a 3.5-inch HVGA display, a 1GHz single-core chip and a humble 3.2MP camera on the back and a 1.3MP shooter up front. It's running stock Android Gingerbread with Sprint ID, and hopefully will come with a manageable price tag. The Samsung Conquer 4G release date is set for July 24th in Sam's Club.
specs review to get all the fine details about the handset along with a hands-on and video demonstration below.

Im really considering this, As a sprint fan-boy I was happy we had this speedster but i never really liked Motorola, Im a Samsung guy, My epic is awesome but The sequel will be so wack, sound like and the galaxy s2 or full touch 4g not sure i don't like to guess, but whatever it has to be dominant, But i think i want this its fast and sexy looking,

I wonder if the Photon is analogous to the Bionic on VZW?

Man Sprint...neither one of these devices seem very impressive, esp. compared to the Epic 4G or HTC Evo. The Samsung almost reminds me of a lower grade LG android. I'd pass most definitely.

How does the Photon NOT compare quite well to the single core Evo and Epic? Better proc, twice the ram, better screen (than the Evo, at least) and most likely a larger battery than both of them... The Conquer may not stack up against the 2 former high end champs from 2010, but its not positioned that way. This is a mid-range phone with 4G, thank goodness, and a price tag to match. Im guessing this will sit around $99 or $129, maybe drive the Evo Shift down to $50 and the Samsung Transform to $30 or even free. Or maybe im way off on all the prices, who knows
