High(er) End Android Phone Coming to Boost Mobile?

PocketNow.com has some pictures and specs for a new Android QWERTY slider that they claim will be launching soon on Boost Mobile.

It's dubbed the Samsung Transform Ultra (SPH-M930) and looks to be a significantly better phone than Boost's first Android device, the Samsung Galaxy Prevail.  The CPU is a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon which, unlike the Prevail's 800 MHz CPU, includes a Graphics Processor (GPU) for less lag and smoother game animation.

A 1 GHZ Snapdragon is used in some rather high-end Android phones including Sprint's Evo 4G, Droid Incredible and Nexus One so the Transform Ultra should be pretty snappy. It will run the latest 2.3 (Gingerbread) smartphone version of the Android OS, unlike the Prevail which is stuck, at least for now, on Android 2.2 (Froyo).

The Transform Ultra has a better camera too, 3 MP with LED flash compared with the Prevail's flash-less 2 MP shooter.  The screen looks larger too, probably 3.5", but with probably the same HVGA (320x480px) resolution,

PocketNow says the Transform Ultra will retail for $230. There's no information on when it will be released but I'd be surprised to see it before October.
