the first time, it was because it had appeared in an internal TELUS inventory screen. Well, now it's getting a little bit more interesting, as a tipster has sent Mobile Syrup the first screen shot of the device. And, as some had suggested, the Triumph is indeed a rebranded version of HTC's Desire.

HTC Desire? Initially promised for the end of April by Orange UK, a combination of volcanic ash and firmware issues have seen the Android 2.1 smartphone delayed. Now, Android Community tipster Chris has let us know that the black Desire is expected to arrive early next week. That's come straight from Orange UK customer services, who told Chris that the limited edition Desire was expected to arrive in their warehouses sometime in the first week of May. Actual shipments out to customers should take place from "middle to late next week". Orange's product page is here - it still says simply "coming soon - and the specifications for the handset are the same as the regular model we reviewed back in March. The phone will be priced from free on new contracts. [Thanks Chris!]
HTC Desire has only been in buyers' pockets for a week or so, but already the carrier is warning owners to be ready for an OTA update. In a new post on the carrier's support forum, T-Mobile says they are "aware that HTC is planning to release a new software update" and are working with the manufacturer to make sure owners have no issues receiving it.
