The Motorola Triumph Ushers in a New Pre-Paid Standard


Yesterday the world was introduced to a new super smart phone from Motorola, the Photon 4G. This monster phone packs a dual core processor, Android 2.3 and all the international bells and whistles the one needs to be an infamous international roamer. But there was another device launched yesterday at the same Sprint – Motorola event it’s called the Triumph. The Triumph is taking its Froyo’ed goodness and high quality build over to the prepaid giant Virgin Mobile. With the Triumph bringing its smart phone self to the pre paid market we can assure you times are a’ changing.

Taking a look at the specs of the Motorola Triumph you would assume that this device would have been launched sometime last year as one of the many must have smart phones. However as the market shifts into this dual core realm, it seems that single core 1 GHz devices will be filling in the void and at the same time upping the ante. The Motorola Triumph uses a 4.1 inch WVGA screen and displaces a pixel resolution of 480×800, sound good? Well keep reading it gets better. Under the screen the Triumph rocks a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512 RAM and 2GB of ROM which makes this a pretty snappy device. The Triumph uses stock Android version 2.2 without the presence of Blur – hurray for vanilla Froyo. Triumph also carries a 5 mega pixel camera that is sports auto focus and can record your favorite moments in 720p HD. Capping off its camera capabilities is its front facing VGA camera for video conferencing. The Motorola Triumph also comes with a host of other features no normally found on prepaid devices, as if what we have already covered was not enough. With the Triumph you should expect an HDMI output, Wi-Fi 802.11b, 802.11g, Bluetooth 2.1, expandable micro SD memory up to 32GB, and a 3.5mm headset connection.

The Motorola Triumph was announced Thursday and will be available the second quarter of 2011. While pricing has not been announced we can expect this device to be reasonably affordable and have excellent prepaid plans. So what do you think of the new Motorola Triumph?
