Motorola Triumph from Virgin Mobile Available Now for $299


Never mind that Best Buy was selling the thing a bit early, Virgin Mobile’s stock Android handset the Motorola Triumph is now available in stores and online. The phone will set you back $299, a hefty price if we were talking about a two-year contract, but there won’t be any of those with Virgin. For the price you get a 1GHz processor, dual cameras (5MP rear, VGA front), and a 4.1-inch display, not to mention HDMI output with 1:1 mirroring. Calling plans with unlimited data start at a very reasonable $35. Add all of it up and I’d say we’re looking at a bargain.

  1. Ordered one for my girlfriend part week. Lets welcome another one to the Android flock!

  2. The unlimited plan looked awesome until Virgin announced throttle caps past 2.5GB. Now heavy users can pay $55 per month for a molasses-slow trickle. Joy.

    1. I think 2.5 GB is pretty generous considering their plans with data start at just $35 a month. Consider that adding just 2 GB to your monthly Verizon plan is $30 on top of your regular voice plan. I would consider switching from Verizon except that I need roaming since I travel for work.

      1. Get lowest VZ plan using a feature phone and leave the internet stuff for VM?

    2. Also, that won’t go into effect until October.

    3. It slows down to about 256Kbps which is not too bad because of the price, t-mo slow down to edge speed….often even slower..

  3. looks like it time for the gf to get a new phone now

    1. GF phone on a month to month plan… $299.
      Deftly avoiding commitment… Priceless.

  4. Anybody know if WiFi hotspot can be used on this phone like Virgins Optimus V? Also anybody who picked this up at Best Buy early and have activated it, a brief review would be great.

    1. Check out the forums.

  5. so disappointed in best buy…. went in around noon today to get one and they were sold out already from pre-selling all units instead of saving some for the day of the actual release, but i won’t go anywhere else because i have a 10% off coupon for the phone so i have to wait now just to get it for $279.
