Sprint's mid-range offering in the Samsung Transform is now available
There's no denying that Samsung has a deep affinity for Sprint, which is quite evident since the number three carrier has offered three QWERTY based Android smartphones previously – with the recent addition of the Samsung Transform being the fourth.

By no means is it taking away from the Samsung Epic 4G's current reign as being the biggest and baddest Android handset for the carrier, but it'll probably be more suitable for those who don't necessarily want to gravitate towards a high-end offering. Plus, the Android 2.1 enabled Samsung Transform won't be packing 4G connectivity which should come to be less burdensome in the pockets for those who don't have coverage around their area.

Customers can now scope the Transform online for the price of $149.99 with a 2-year contract after a $100 mail-in-rebate. It features a 3.5” HVGA touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera, VGA front facing camera, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Android 2.1 with Sprint ID, and a convenient landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard. If you want to steer clear from having to sign a contract, you can buy it for the no-contract price of $399.99.

I think the Evo is the biggest and baddest Android handset on the carrier. Not the Epic.

Lovin my upgrade so far to the Transform. Nice successor to the Samsung Moment. Did not need the "4g" phone is plenty fast esp with wifi. Plus the Epic is a little to bulky for my tastes and didn't want or need to shell out the extra $$ as well. Flash on the camera is a must for me now too & the Transforms is great!!
