The Android-powered Samsung Transform Ultra for Boost Mobile resembles the original Transform less than you'd think.

Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, the Samsung Transform Ultra is one of Boost Mobile's few QWERTY offerings.

Keyboard

Keyboards are tactile things, so it's fitting that the Transform Ultra has four physical buttons at one end of the screen. Interestingly, the keyboard is different, flatter than the original Transform for Sprint. Like its predecessor, it's loaded with Sprint ID.

Cameras

The 3-megapixel rear-facing camera is accompanied by a flash. There's a front-facing VGA camera as well. The Transform Ultra's back cover is textured, making it easier to grip.
