  • win. no blur
  • Wait..only $129? Can we get some confirmation on the price?
  • Wow! Best deal yet for Virgin it would seem
  • Please tell me the name in the title is a typo. I'd hate to think that Motorola gave a cool device a name with a lisp.
  • Yup, it's a typeo. lol. It's actually "Motorola Triumph."
  • The Triumph's form factor and feel might be superior to the Photon, also announced today. This is one beautiful phone for Virgin Mobile. Their best device yet, IMO.
  • Thats pretty cheap for an off-contract smartphone with those specs!!!!
  • It's got WiFi, right?
  • Yes, WiFi b/g/n.
  • Where is it available now? It isn't listed on their website at all.
  • Yeah...129...that cant be right...i would buy 5 of those
  • That 129 CANNOT be right, since they jacked the LG Optimus V to 199.99. Even though alot of ppl complain about VM service, I for one NEVER had the problems they b*tch about. But I guess thats what ppl do, tend to complain online rather than praise. This phone being released kinda scares me, seeing alot of ppl dropping their giant 100.00/mo bills and taking up my bandwith... oy
  • Release to be in late July, price unannounced.
  • There wasnt a price listed on the sprint newsroom page either, i'm guessing around 300.
  • Aricle says available now
  • Triumph pics
  • oooo its got a kickstand!-- never mind, i went on too far to the photon.
  • It will be mine! I wonder if it will get an update to Gingerbread at some point.
  • That's the gingerbread app drawer with the Froyo notification bar is it not?
  • Nah dude both Froyo and Gingerbread both had a 3D drawer. Remember the Nexus One and G2?
  • Hmmm I guess the change was between 2.1 and 2.2. My bad.
  • I'm interested in knowing what material the screen is covered in. Is it glass or plastic? I ended up returning an Optimus V due to the plastic screen, which smudged way too easily. I've looked at other sites and no one seems to know.
  • That's a very nice spec'd phone for a prepaid carrier. That could convince me to switch.
  • Virgin and Boost Mobile have the best prepaid phone and plan options in the US.
  • Does it have a 1 GHz processor?
  • The phone ships with a second generation Snapdragon processor (MSM8655).
  • I checked some other websites and it does feature a 1GHz processor in addition to the specs listed above. I currently have the VM Optimus and it is a damn good little phone, emphasis on little. I have actually been shopping around for an android with a larger screen but just can't bring myself to leave VM and my beloved $25 a month prepaid, no contract plan. So this is regarded by me as very good news and unless it sucks this will be my next phone. 4.1" screen, 1GHz processor, stock android, 5MB camera, check, check, check, check...
  • ...And hopefully this phone will not have a "locked" boot loader like the Sprint Photon. Either way, this could easily be the best "Value" Android phone in North America-err-The World! If you think about it, Tethering alone is worth the incredible $25 monthly price... I am guessing the retail price will be in the $229-$299 range. My goodness.
  • no mention on the GPU.... Well the VM service really does suck eggs... I cant get over 15-25kBs data.. that is not even 1G.... if this phone was 50 bucks I still would not continue spending money on such a congested network as sprint.. this phone will surely bring my speeds even lower
  • Where does the information come from that it is $129??? Can anyone provide a link?
  • I know that people dont like MotoBlur but i love it is there anyway it can be imported to this phone from the Photon?
  • I'm hoping that there will be better support for this phone as I bought the Motorola i1 last year and there has been little to no support for the device since its launch...
