We first spotted Samsung’s SPH-M930 earlier this summer. A QWERTY slider, it was badged for eventual arrival at Boost Mobile. While it’s yet to make a formal appearance on the carrier, it looks like preparations are nearly ready to go for the smartphone to debut as the Samsung Transform Ultra.
The Transform Ultra will join the Samsung Prevail on Boost, making it the second Android option for the carrier. With the Prevail still on Froyo, this will be the first Gingerbread Android for Boost.
While the Transform Ultra looks like a mid-tier device, the specs [...]
Over at Sprint, the times, they are a-changin’. We’ve already seen a leaked roadmap revealing some upcoming smartphones for the carrier; now we can see which are nearing the end of their time with us, thanks to another leak, this time of the carrier’s end-of-life schedule for the next few months.
According to these EOL dates (which could always end up shifting around, especially the further-off ones), Sprint’s clearing some serious BlackBerry house, dropping the Style 9670 in just a few weeks, followed by the Bold 9650 and Curve 3G in September. With new [...]
Sprint users of the Nexus S 4G may be looking quizzically at their phones today, wondering where their new software update is. After all, we were expecting one to arrive yesterday, supposedly ready to bump the phone up to Android 2.3.5, and enabling secure NFC transmissions. Don’t worry, it’s not just you who’s missing out on the software, as we’ve learned Sprint’s delayed the update’s release.
An internal Sprint screenshot tells the tale, though it’s not much in the way of details. All we learn is that update GRJ90 simply wasn’t [...]
Sprint’s Samsung Transform got a 4 out of 5 in our review mainly because of the slower, 800MHz processor and the lower amount of RAM, in addition to the Android 2.1 Eclair running on it.
SDX Developers have managed to port Android 2.2 Froyo on the handset and it looks like they’ve got a pretty stable port. As with any non-native platform ports, there are some flaws though: the camera flash as well as the front facing camera are not (yet) working. If you don’t want to wait until Sprint releases an official Froyo update (whenever that will be), head over to the [...]
The Samsung Transform is a new Android device that combines a touchscreen with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that looks similar to the high-end Samsung Epic 4G, but has smaller dimensions and less power. It features Android 2.1, an 800MHz CPU, and 256MB of RAM. It also has a new feature called Sprint ID which allows the user to load pre-configured home screens, similar to Scenes for HTC Sense. The question, however, is where in Sprint’s lineup does this device fit? Read on for our full review where we’ll cover hardware, software, speed, and a whole lot more!
So far we’ve unboxed the Motorola Flipside. We’ve also taken an up and close look at its hardware and MotoBlur user interface. Our next video in the Flipside series is a comparison video in which we pit the Motorola Flipside against the Samsung Transform.
Both devices are considered mid-range Android phones. The Flipside is featured on AT&T’s network and sports a 720mHz processor and 512MB of RAM. The Transform resides on Sprint and holds an 800mHz processor and 256MB of RAM.
