Stock Android experience is coming to Sprint with the Samsung Transform?
Although we all saw a slight glimpse of the Samsung Transform that's heading to Sprint, it was believed to be yet another Samsung Galaxy S device. However, the Transform's user guide has been leaked and provides some additional details regarding this upcoming smartphone.

So far, it looks as though that the Samsung Transform will feature a 3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microSD card slot, and possibly a stock Android 2.2 experience. Despite shaping up to be a decent offering for Sprint, which we might add already have their filling of some decent Android smartphones, the Transform is being positioned as a mid-range offering that may or may not offer 4G connectivity.

It's hard to say if it'll be flaunting support for Sprint's 4G network, but we'd imagine that there are customers out there who don't want to pay for next-generation data speeds – even more when they're not covered with it. It'll most likely go without 4G connectivity since it'll be a mid-range handset, but then again, it can be the first mid-range set on their lineup to pack 4G support.

Yes I do know the epic has a keyboard... But I live near buffalo, so there is no 4g... Also, I don't like the epic keyboard because it is too small for me... But I thought the transform would be just a galaxy s phone without the keyboard... Now this is like an instinct with android and the intercepts keyboard

Samsung Hub claims its going to have a 3.5" display. Can anyone confirm this? I didnt see it anywhere in the manual.

This is a nice phone that has a few software issues that people hope to be fixed with Android 2.2. Sprint promise Android 2.2 by the end of 2010 and they did NOT deliver on their promise. Oh what a surprise Sprint lied.
