Samsung Transform Ultra available now on Boost Mobile

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?

  • That is a very sweet deal... To my knowledge, there is no data throttling either.
  • walmarts straight talk is a way better deal and they have an android phone now.
  • 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. ;)
  • That Walmart phone is not as nice as this.
  • 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).
