What’s the HTC Triumph, you ask? Well that was what had many people scratching their heads when Mobile Syrup uncovered some TELUS inventory pics showing the device as coming to the Canadian network. But wonder no more, as it turns out the Triumph will be a rebranded HTC Desire. The Desire, as we all know, is the 1GHz Snapdragon, 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen kissing-cousin to the Nexus One and is currently on quite the rampage over in Europe.

Up until now its only presence in North America seemed to be its upcoming summer release on US Cellular, but it looks like the Triumph-named TELUS version will be landing in the same time period (July/August). No pricing is known, and the reason for the name change remains a mystery. Maybe they realized what everyone DESIRED turned out to be a huge TRIUMPH…ha…ha…ehhhh.
