Sprint announces the Samsung Transform Ultra for Boost Mobile, available on October 7 for $229.99
Sprint’s no-contract brand, Boost Mobile, has added a new Android-powered smartphone to its roster today. The Samsung Transform Ultra apparently “complements the existing Samsung Galaxy Prevail“, which has, in just four months since its launch, become the best-selling no-contract smartphone in Samsung’s history.
Boost Mobile obviously hopes the Transform Ultra will do just as well. And judging by its price per features ratio, that doesn’t seem impossible at all.
The Samsung Transform Ultra is a midrange offering that comes with a full physical side-sliding QWERTY keyboard. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, a 3 MP camera, a secondary front-facing VGA camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and microSD card support.
The Samsung Transform Ultra will become available on October 7 for $229.99 (excluding taxes) at Boost Mobile Stores, Boost Mobile partners, and online. In fact, a placeholder page is already up on Boost Mobile’s website showcasing the Transform Ultra.
Following in Sprint’s footsteps, and most notably in those of the Samsung Transform which is probably the predecessor of the Transform Ultra, Boost Mobile will offer ‘mobile ID packs’ for the Transform Ultra. These include apps, widgets, ringtones, and wallpapers, and can be quickly changed with a few taps.
