Virgin Mobile will keep its Android phones pure by omitting manufacturer skins
If you’ll recall, we reported yesterday that the Motorola Triumph, that surprise little powerhouse headed to Virgin Mobile this summer, will be Blur-less. That’s right: Vanilla Froyo on a prepaid carrier. We’re officially excited. Today, a Virgin Mobile spokesperson explained the decision to PCMag, citing the company’s commitment to the user experience, and ultimately customization. In short, Virgin Mobile's policy is to retain “the true Android experience” on all of its Android offerings. No word yet on whether or not that translates to other goodies like unlocked bootloaders, and whether or not manufacturers will play ball, but it’s certainly refreshing to see a carrier as big a fan of Android as we are.
