Is the Samsung Transform another Galaxy S phone for Sprint?
Looking at the unit, it resembles the Epic 4G. Considering that the latter model is Sprint's variant of the Samsung Galaxy S Pro which includes a slideout landscape QWERTY keyboard, it is possible that the Transform is a version of the plain 'ole Galaxy S without the QWERTY. Whatever the Samsung Transform is, it is clear that the nation's third largest carrier will be at least one of the places it will call home.

I hate it when PA puts question marks after most of their articles. Just that they should already know and be telling us the info without asking it...

To answer this article, no. The Samsung Transform is not another Galaxy S phone for T-Mobile. The Samsung Transform is clearly another Galaxy S phone for Sprint.

I could've swore that when I clicked on this it said "...for T-mobile" Well I just googled this phone and it seems to be a non-4g galaxy s pro for Sprint and might actually be the moment 2 and a major upgrade to the intercept.

So, if the Transform is indeed a non-4G Galaxy Pro, does that mean that Sprint is delaying their 4G roll-out? Enquiring minds want to know....

umm no its for people that dont want 4g dont care for 4g or dont want the premium data experience lol

You mean a phone for those who don't want to subsidize Sprint's virtual 4G network (aka those who don't live in an area scheduled for 4G)?

I wish they had kept the 5MP camera of the Epic. The Epic's camera is sweet. This sucker better have Android 2.2 out the gate!! None of this "2.1 with an update to be coming shortly crap". My two cents. :-) 4G is not a priority for me and I appreciate that a phone like this will give me some options instead of paying an extra $10 a month.

its still cheaper than at&t and verizon even with the $10 buy up for everything included in the plan and there isnt a data cap
