Virgin Mobile getting Android-powered Motorola Triumph

Yesterday Motorola and Virgin Mobile announced a new Android handset, the Triumph. It resembles many of Motorola’s other Android handsets — it’s kind of like the Droid without the slide-out keyboard. It’s a larger device at 4.1 inches, and it features a 5 megapixel rear and VGA front-facing cameras. It runs fast at 1GHz, and, for the multimedia fans, it has an HDMI output. It also runs Android 2.2 out of the box, though at some point you have to figure it will get 2.3. This looks like the highest end handset to date for Virgin Mobile, and I can see plenty of users upgrading. There’s no price or release date set for it, but I would figure somewhere between $200 and $300 with a summer release date.

    It looks like customers to go for the $55/mo plan with the Triumph since the original rate has been adjusted from $60 to $55. I don’t think that is a good approach for Virgins to follow. It would be better to keep the rates as they are and increase the price of the Trumph. Why do others, who are not interested at the Trumph, incur a rate increase? I was to get the Optimus with the $40 plan. As a college student, my primary intention is to save money but not to serf web with the unlimited privilege. Right now, I have changed my mind because of the rate increase.

    I’ve read reviews that the Triumph is laggy/has connectivity issues. On top of that, the 5MP isn’t that great, and the phone runs Android Froyo not Ice Cream Sandwich. So, I’ve also been considering the HTC ONE V, which is ICS. It has a much better 5MP camera, but is lacking the video chat camera the Triumph has. Apparently the call quality is quite good. Has anyone bought either of these phones yet? How well have they worked?
