The prepaid mobile phone market just got more interesting. During a Sprint/Motorola press event, Motorola unveiled its first ever handset to be carried by Virgin Mobile, dubbed the Motorola Triumph. There haven’t been any pricing details revealed, though the specs look impressive. The Triumph runs Android 2.2 Froyo, (just as the provider’s two other Android devices)…is packed with 512MB RAM, a powerful 1 GHz processor, and features a 4.1-inch touchscreen with front and rear-facing cameras. Virgin Mobile is marketing the Triumph to “savvy customers” seeking the benefits of a no contract plan.
The Triumph also includes all of the entertainment services of Virgin Mobile Live 2.0 for free, along with “default” social media integration of your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
