Motorola Triumph on Virgin Mobile Set to Release July 19th

Hey all you fans of Virgin out there, it's your time! It's time you got an Android phone that competes with the best of em - and does it with a nearly vanilla flavoring to boot! This is the Motorola Triumph, a device which we got to peek at a short while ago and one we're rather pumped up about on account of its uniqueness. Though it is still rolling out with Android 2.2 Froyo when even the mid-range competitors are blasting through the gates with Gingerbread, don't count the Triumph out - not by a long shot - and get pumped up because it's coming in July!

Have a look at our hands-on with this device back on the 9th of June, 2011, and/or head to the video below. What you're witnessing above is a clipping from a magazine handed over to Facebook which states the Triumph to be coming out on the 19th of July. But why, again, why are we so excited that this phone is about to be released?

Because like all Virgin Mobile devices, this one comes with absolutely no contractual obligations. THis device looks very similar to the original DROID, had a 5-megapixel camera on the back, a VGA camera on the front, 720p video playback over HDMI out and it's running Android 2.2 Froyo with, again, that nearly vanilla style to it.

Looks solid, looks well made, looks like a winner. Will this be the device to thrust the Android game on Virgin Mobile to the forefront to compete with the rest of those pesky opponents? We shall see!

    My concern is will a mid range network like VMUSA be able to handle the monstrous data requirements of an Android? These phones are constantly synching, downloading, etc. Is the network up to the task, or will it choke?

      Virgin runs on sprints network you’ve got nothing to worry about

    Problem: Virgin Mobile runs on the Sprint network and has no roaming. So basically you are screwed for most of the geographic USA.
