Samsung Transform Ultra
The Samsung Transform Ultra isn't top-end but the hardware design is much nicer than you'd expect for prepaid. This phone is actually remarkably similar to the LG Optimus Slider for Virgin and Enlighten for Verizon, but read on to find out what Samsung did differently.
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. It is a sideways slider that has a 3.5-inch display, 1GHz processor, and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Boost Mobile's new iD packs (similar to Sprint iD). 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.
