Any news on possible getting froyo for the transform?
Also, I'm gonna give you guys my thoughts on this phone. I've had a lot of mid-range phones. Started with the. Palm pre, got the blackberry 8530, the blackberry tour, the hero, and the samsung transform. The thing that I noticed is that people are trying to compare this phone to the evo, or epic.. the truth is, you can't compare it to them. Keep it in it's mid-range class, and this phone shinesM it loads apps fast, and foes many things well. I give the 800 mghz processor an 8 out of 10(has a tiny bit of lag, but loads fast).
I LOVE the keyboards.. on-screen and off-screen. The off screen is simply great(slider).
I give the front and rear camera a 7.. the picture quality is aweful, but since it has a front camera, it gets a 7 instead of a 6.
Phone call quality is a 7.
Now.. all these scores didn't give me a bad opinion on the phone.. for some reason, this phone keeps me gloo'd to it. It has a great user-friendly feel! I would rate this phone the best mid-range device sprint has. It does have some glitches, but it's a solid device!
I give it a 7.8 out of 10

The front camera is meant mostly for self portraits & Video chat.
I agree the transform is a great mid range device. Bought one for my wife.
She loves it. Angry birds runs fine on her phone. She plays Jewels , AB, uses a recipe app. gmail & hotmail & uses handcent sms, so far she has had 0 complaints. Of course she is coming from an LG rumor.
I had her take the pre for a test drive. She liked it too except for the cramped keyboard, & she noticed the insane lag in boot up time.
The Transform blows the Pre away ( stock Pre) Once Guvnah is loaded with overclock @ 1000 the Pre is fast but still takes longer to boot than the transform.Please add thanks if I have helped you in anyway. I will always spread the Aloha and reciprocate.

i agree with your assesment of the phone...ive had it for a couple weeks now and i was thinking about trading it for the Epic,but i think im going to keep it. It does EVERYTHING i need it to do and with minimum lag...every app ive installed runs fine and really, i know the Epic has a larger screen and a faster processor and 4g, but how fast do you REALLLY need your phone to be? Im happy with my transform.
