Samsung Transform Ultra

The Samsung Transform Ultra, the QWERTY slider we first met last month, is available now on Boost Mobile for $229.99. In case you've forgotten, the Transform Ultra has got some respectable guts under its hood:

  • Android 2.3
  • 1GHz processor
  • 3.5 inch HVGA Touchscreen 
  • Full QWERTY Keypad
  • 3MP rear camera with video
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • Wi-Fi®, GPS and Wireless Web enabled
  • Front-facing VGA camera
  • Easy access to Gmail™ and Google Talk™
  • Bluetooth® capable
  • Speakerphone with voice-activated dialing
  • Supports microSD® cards up to 32GB (2GB card included)
  • Voice mail, caller ID, call waiting and three-way calling

You'll have to choose between Boost's $55/month unlimited Android plan and its $2/day unlimited daily plan for your Transform Ultra, but that doesn't seem too shabby for a contract-free Gingerbread device. Is anyone planning on hitting the source link to grab one today?

Samsung Transform Ultra available now on Boost Mobile


Not really due to shrinkage. After 18 months you will be paying $40/month instead of the $55/month. That and the Straightalk android is crap. Unless you just grab one of the phones that use the good SIM and put it in your choice of at&t android phone. ;)

And yet another specs article with no mention of how much memory. 512MB? 768MB? 1GB?

Boost has low prices, but you have to beware- it has NO ROAMING AT ALL, so you are restricted ONLY to the Sprint native network. This won't be a problem if you live in a city and travel mostly interstate. But if not, don't expect the coverage of Verizon, like you have with regular Sprint service (which includes free roaming).
