Boost Mobile today announced that the Samsung Transform Ultra will be available starting October 7 for $229.99. The Transform Ultra is a successor to last year's Transform.

Other features of the Transform Ultra include a 3 megapixel main camera, VGA user-facing camera, Wi-FI, GPS, Bluetooth, and microSD card support (up to 32GB). It requires one of Boost Mobile's new Android plans, which have a $5 surcharge attached.
