New Motorola Triumph: Pre-Order & Price Details

Just over a week ago, we gave you news that another two handsets were coming your way courtesy of Motorola. The two in question are that of the Motorola Photon 4G and the Triumph. Although the Photon 4G has its own impressive specs listing and will be classed at the higher end of the smartphone mix, the Triumph is certainly not one to be snubbed at!

Before we refresh you on the Triumph’s features, it only seems fair to let you know that the handset is now available to pre-order from Best Buy. When we first reported on the new Motorola offering, we had no indication as to a release date but things have progressed since then. If you put your name against one of the Triumph’s today, then the retailer has stated that you will be able to get your hands on it between July 19th and the 26th when it releases.

In terms of price, Popherald.com via Phandroid have reported that the new Motorola will be $299.99 without a data-plan as its carrier Virgin Mobile just offer prepaid packages.

So what can you expect to get for your dollars? Firstly the Triumph sports a 4.1-inch screen, smaller to other rivals landing or in the pipeline, Google Android 2.2 Froyo OS, 5MP rear camera and front-facing VGA, 1GHz Snapdragon single processor, again many of the smartphones have a dual-core processor so how the Triumph pans out is anybody’s guess, pre-installed Virgin apps and so on.

As you can see from the embedded video below, the phone is shown in all its glory but as stated, the new Motorola could be compared to Marmite, you either love or hate it due to its boxey appearance. It was pointed out that although the handset only includes a single CPU, it still ticks the boxes in terms of fast speeds.

Let us know your thoughts on the new Triumph? Would you be willing to pay $299.99 or is there something else tempting you? With so many smartphones to choose from and some biggie’s on the way such as Motorola’s Droid Bionic, Apple’s iPhone 5 and now news of a new Samsung phone including a whooping 1.4GHz dual-core processor, the decision process is getting more difficult.
