Virgin Mobile Motorola Triumph now available for $299.99

Right on schedule (well, almost), Virgin Mobile USA has started selling the Motorola Triumph. This was one Android-powered smartphone that you could have pre-ordered from Best Buy over the past few weeks. If, however, you haven’t gone that route, you can now go to Virgin Mobile’s website over here and pick up a Triumph.

The Motorola Triumph is probably one of Virgin’s best devices at the moment, if not the best. Sure, it doesn’t compete with the absolute high-end Android phones of today, but last year this would have been a flagship, so it’s a decent performer even now. It has a 4.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with 720p HD video recording, 512 MB of RAM, and a 1 GHz processor. The Motorola Triumph runs Android 2.2 Froyo.

Virgin Mobile will give you a Triumph for $299.99 with one of its new no-contract plans. So no long-term commitments here. If your carrier of choice is Virgin Mobile, and you like smartphones, this is probably the device you should get.

    I am extremely disappointed in the Motorola Triumph.  The phone’s signal reception is POOR, ranging
    from 7 dB to a whopping 23 dB WORSE than my LG Optimus V (on the same carrier),
    with an average 13 dB worse, resulting in dropping the data connection.  In addition, the phone has SEVERE problems
    achieving a GPS fix, making Google maps and Navigator USELESS.  I returned my first phone, hoping I just got
    a bad one, but the second one has the same problems.  I have read in the Android community that
    these problems are COMMONPLACE with this phone. 
    How can Motorola put its name on a phone that fails so badly to perform
    in an area as FUNDAMENTAL as connectivity? 
    Poor engineering and/or QA/QC.  I
    am returning the phone to Best Buy, and unless I hear definitive news that
    these problems have been fixed, I will NOT be repurchasing this product.  I am now extremely skeptical about the
    quality of Motorola cell phones.
