Last week at CTIA, Sprint announced a trio of Android phones. These 3 phones all work with their new trick called Sprint ID. Among all this Windows Phone excitement, I found time to do quick unboxing and 1st look at the Samsung Transform. The Transform has a slide out keyboard, runs Android 2.1, and packs a nice sized 1500mAh battery.
The Transform is a designed for heavy text and email users. It has a 3.5-inch HVGA screen, a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 3.2 megapixel camera with camcorder functions, and a front-facing camera for video conferencing. The Samsung Transform will ship with Android 2.1 running on an 800mhz processor. It’s only got 512 MB of internal storage, but has a MicroSD card slot that will support up to 32GB. The 3.5″ TFT screen is powered by a pretty nice sized 1500 mah battery. You can grab the Samsung Transform on Oct. 10 and the pricing will be $149.99 with a two-year service agreement. (after a $100 mail-in-rebate)
I plan to do another video tonight to show how Sprint ID works, so stay tuned.
