Motorola Triumph Pre-Orders Begin at Best Buy

By  |  19 Comments

Plenty of you have been clamoring about Virgin Mobile’s upcoming pre-paid phone, the Motorola Triumph, and it looks like you can now go ahead and place a pre-order at Best Buy if you have $300 sitting around.

Motorola Triumph

Yes folks, the phone still doesn’t have an official release date – we’re hearing July 19th – but Best Buy has thrown it up on its website anyway. Estimated arrival time is anywhere between July 19th – yup – and July 26th. We’re going to assume that it arrives sooner rather than later.

Many of you had been hoping that the phone would arrive for a price tag around $200-$250 but that doesn’t appear to be the case, at least not here. Instead, you’re going to have to fork over three Benjamins in order to get a hold of this beaut.

And just to go over the specifications again, the Triumph will have a  4.1″ display (800×480 WVGA), 5MP back-facing camera and VGA front-facing camera, 720p playback and capture, 1400 mAh battery, 512MB of RAM, 2GB of on-board storage, Android 2.2 Froyo, and a form factor that checks in at .4 inches at its thinnest point.

You can head over to Best Buy to pre-order right now if you wish.

Any takers?

    I wonder if the plans are going to be the same, because if they are it sounds like a good deal to me!! Count me in, Im changing my HTC Evo paying $100 a month to the Motorola Triumph hoping to pay $30 a month including insurance.

    $300 bucks is a lot.. but paying $30 bucks a month compared to $100.. i’ll pick the savings up in no time.. An upgrade on any other network for a new release is gonna cost you atleast$200.. might as well fork over another $100 for a better package deal.

      at least thats when it said we would have it in stock, so the 19th would actually make sense

      Could you get the employee price on that too?  I’m imagining its like 260-280 or something…

      So, if I pre-order the phone from best buy, what day will I have the phone in my hands? Will the phone be shipped to me or could I pick it up in the store on the actual release date (July 19)? I’m just curious to know whether I should wait and get it the day it’s released or to go ahead and pre-order it from best buy.

    Considering you’ll save $75 a month on this phone because of the plan, it’s way worth it at $300. My next phone for sure.

    It’s mind boggling what a great deal this is.

    Being that I’m currently spending over $150 for three lines on Verizon, Taking my primary line over alone will save me a significant amount of money over the next 12 months.

    Once I cancel the third line and migrate my wife, we’ll go from spending almost $2000 annually to capping our mobile expenses at $600 annually.

    That’s a no brainer. However I’m going to buy mine at Target, they have a 90 day return policy.

    Anyone know about MicroSDCard max on this phone? I’ve been wanting to dump $104 a month at Verizon for a while now

    Hi again, found my answer at:  http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Motorola-TRIUMPH_id5634
    Memory Expansion: Slot Type: microSD, microSDHCMaximum card size: 32 GB
    Even though I’ll have to pay the early termination fee it’s still a better option than $104 a month. I’m really looking forward to seeing this one in action. Cheers everyone!

    Does this phone support flash? I would like to watch shows on other websites besides YouTube.
