First Look: Samsung Transform Ultra (Boost Mobile)

1:12 /

A slide-out QWERTY keyboard isn't what sets this Android Gingerbread smartphone apart; that honor goes to Sprint ID, a first for a Boost Mobile handset.

-Hey everyone, I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET here at CTIA in San Diego. What I have in my hands is the Samsung Transform Ultra. This is a phone that has already been announced for Boost Mobile. So, this phone's claim to fame other than being an android 2.3 Gingerbread phone is that it has got Sprint ID. That basically is an ID pack that is prepopulated with things like apps and wallpapers and that creates a single custom display for your phone. So, screen size is 3.2 inches, which is a little bit small. I really like it to be 3.5 just so that you've got some room, but it does have this slide-out QWERTY keyboard so that kind of alleviates things, and it also has a 3-megapixel camera on the back. It's got this kind of textured material so that will help keep you from losing your grip on it. It runs on an 800-megahertz processor that is available now for $229.99 with Boost Mobile and is without a contract. I'm Jessica Dolcourt. This is the Samsung Transform Ultra and you're watching CNET.
