Samsung Transform

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The Samsung Transform is one of three new Android phones announced by Sprint at CTIA 2010. It has a 3.5 inch touch screen, 3.2 megapixel camera + VGA front facing camera for video calling, Android 2.1, and an 800 Mhz processor.

Probably the most unique thing about the Samsung Transform is Sprint's addition of the new Sprint ID interface. What it is, basically, is preloaded setups for your homescreen. You choose an ID and it automatically sets up your homescreen with apps specific to that particular ID.

The Samsung transform was released in October 2010 for 250.00 with 100.00 mail in rebate, bringing the price of the phone down to 150.00.
