In the relentless rank of Samsung mid-range QWERTY Android smartphones on Sprint, the Transform stands out as the first to offer the new Sprint ID software service. With a few hardware improvements over this summer's Samsung Intercept such as a larger display and front-facing camera, the Transform sits at the top of the Sprint ID trio rounded out by the LG Optimus S and the Sanyo Zio. It has a pleasant hardware keyboard, a 3.5" 320 x 480 display, an 800MHz CPU, a 3.2 megapixel camera, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth. The phone starts with vanilla Android OS 2.1 and adds a helping of Sprint ID on top. Sadly, Sprint's new service bogs down the Transform, and the mid-range hardware doesn't threaten the flagship Samsung Epic 4G.
