Apparently you can walk right into your local Best Buy and purchase the brand new phone on Virgin Mobile, the Motorola Triumph.
A SlashGear review demonstrates the strong points of the Motorola Triumph in a post with pictures and with an additional video coming soon. But the treasure was in the comments.
I have this phone and it’s activated. I went to Best Buy on 7/16/11 and bought it when it was discovered in the cabinets behind the register. They didn’t even know they had it and made no comments about whether or not it could be sold or activated. Swapped it out with my existing Virgin Blackberry plan with the phone activation… no trouble doing so. Love it!!

Although there does seem to be a different story when it comes to activation; that is, you can’t activate until Wednesday upon launch.
I have this phone now, you can get it at best buy for 269 w/ a 10% discount coupon that can be found online. You can’t, however, activate it until 7/20…

Before I buy, I’m waiting for more reviews. I’m curious about battery life and responsiveness.
Like Unlike the infamous Intercept, Triumph comes with only a single two processors. The Optimus V contained two processors, one for regular computation and then for graphics. That allowed everyone whom experience the molasses Intercept to breath a sigh of relief.I don’t have any specific information about the CPU and GPU in the Triumph so we’ll have to wait and see.
It has yet to be seen if the Triumph can truly triumph. You can expect more reviews up to launch from and thereafter when more Normal People™ get their hands on it.
