We've seen plenty of new smartphones being introduced at the CTIA Enterprise & Applications conference, so it should come as no surprise that Samsung was also present at the party with the Samsung Transform, one of the first premium Android powered devices to coincide with the rollout of Sprint ID, a user-friendly new means of personalizing Android phones.
Sprint ID allows Samsung Transform users to quickly download ID packs that deliver a predefined experience, including applications, widgets, ringtones and wallpapers, all at once, the packs being designed to meet customers’ interests – for instance, whether they are a sports fan, fitness fanatic or auto enthusiast.
Samsung Transform features a 3.5-inch HVGA touch-screen display, full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3.2MP rear-facing camera with flash and camcorder and VGA front-facing camera for video conferencing.
The handset offers the ability to sync personal and corporate e-mail, contacts and calendars, and multiple messaging options, including threaded text, while also allowing access to social networking sites Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter.
Equipped with the Android 2.1 operating system (but scheduled for an upgrade to 2.2 later this year), Samsung Transform provides access to popular Google mobile services, including Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail and YouTube, and access to more than 80,000 applications available in Android Market.
The device operates on the Sprint 3G network and features a powerful processor, access to GPS navigation, Stereo Bluetooth wireless technology, Wi-Fi capability and Visual Voicemail.
Furthermore, the device also features a 2GB micro SD card (preinstalled in the device) and a Music Player with MicroSD card slot to support up to 32GB.
The Samsung Transform weighs 5.4 ounces and is available in Black Pearl.
Customers can begin to purchase Samsung Transform Oct. 10 through all Sprint channels, retail pricing being set at $149.99 with a two-year service agreement and after a $100 mail-in-rebate (taxes excluded) with a new line activation or eligible upgrade.
