    There are decriptions of it around the web.

    If I remember right, Samsung 930 or something.

    1.0ghz processor, android 2.3, pull out Qwerty. A midgrade step-up from the entry-level Prevail.

    This is great news so far. I am not a fan of the touch screen KB. Even though i am starting to get used to swype, I still prefer hard kb.

    I agree as well, though Swype isn't sending me in to as many fits of rage as it used to.

    I've been searching high and low, but can't for the life of me find anything out about price or RAM. :mad: Is rumored to be out Oct. 2nd, hopefully we'll be hearing something SOON! Have my present Prevail rooted and shabby-modded and doing great, BUT that physical keyboard is sure looking good...lol. :D I want one.....come on Boost/Samsung, give us some more info!

    Heck i may sound a bit like a stuck in the past thing but please give us 512mb of internal memory to play with. Ram would be nice to have 512 to. If this isnt out by october 12 im getting the motorola photon on sprint since theres so much stuff you can do with it now, someone made a adapter to use it with the motorola atrix's laptop stand.

    Looks good, I love my prevail thanks to interdepth,shabby,hroak134 and the other guys at acs but this phone looks awesome, I hope there is more internal memory and I hope it has a bigger screen.

    Flash or not, if it has the rumored 2 mp camera, it's hardly worth getting excited over...lol. I like my Prevail, but surely didn't buy it for it's picture-taking abilities. :(

    Hey I found the manual on Samsung's site. Sorry if this was posted before already. It's going to be called the Transform Ultra. I wonder when it comes out...


    http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/c...153394/Boost_SPH-M930_English_User_Manual.pdf

    There's also this tutorial thing on Boost's site

    http://scare.deviceanywhere.com/boost/en_US/phone/Samsungtransformultra


    I don't see much on specs except it will be Android 2.3.4, but that was just from the tutorial screenshots. I think it also has a 3 megapixel camera, based on what I see on page 121 of the manual.

    i just got the samsung prevail, and its cool, and i had a question on apps. boost now has media mail which lets you store pics and messages, but only if someone sends them to your fone through their email, not all messages are revealed. The old way was to send messages to your email as a backup, but is their an app to just store it in the media mail apps program already.

    what about an app to sync up and backup all data on phone, pics and messaging to and from along with contacts like when windows does an automated update so you do not forget.

    i thought i read that on one of the forums.

    Is their an app that can modify the numbers with names, so when you review your account the names are already populated. I know verizon had this, but is it available for the prevail android phones

    next, i show a picture in my media mail, but its not showing on my phone, where would it go, app to uncover deleted texts, pics. Can this be accessed on my pc, while my prevail that seems to use alot of battery is charging..

    Next, when someone sends you a pic you cannot move it to your gallery? how do you do that, maybe thats the same app program.

    so many questions.. not sure where to go, and what app is best...

    I have waited for a few months until my contract with alltel runs out (sept 15th) and was all set to get the Prevail. Looks like I am going to wait another month at least for the M930 instead, it looks like it has what I want (physical keyboard, better processor, etc.)

    Thanks to Shabby and friends though for all their hard work on the Prevail, it will be interesting to see what happens to the M930 next hehe

    Someone finally put up some specs on howardforums. I already plan on selling my Prevail and picking this new phone up.

    1Ghz processor.
    3.5" screen.
    3MP camera.
    320x480 resolution screen(for a 320x480 screen looks fantastic).
    Front camera.
    Light sensor.
    Proximity sensor.
    Gingerbread 2.3.4
    Physical Keyboard and Swype installed.

    This is according to Android System Info:
    1007.89Mb Internal Memory.
    370Mb Ram.
    ARMv7 Processor rev 1 1024Mhz.

    From my point of view is an excellent device super fast and smooth. Only thing I criticize is the screen resolution but I can also tell you that looks beautiful.
    It has no comparison against the Prevail. Is a way better device.
