The Triumph is far and away the most advanced phone in Virgin's lineup, with a 4-inch WVGA display, Android 2.2.2, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera that can record HD video, a front-facing camera, HDMI out, and other notable features. Not only is the Triumph Virgin Mobile's first Motorola handset, it's also the first to come preloaded with Virgin Mobile Live, the carrier's social-networking music application.
