Earlier this week (July 19), Motorola released its brand new super-slim Triumph phone for the Virgin Mobile service, which operates on Sprint's 3G network. Running Android 2.2 (Froyo), this touchscreen smart phone features a 5 megapixel rear facing camera as well as a front facing VGA camera for video conferencing.  The rear camera is also good for 720p HD video recording, which can be viewed on your HDTV thanks to the built in HDMI-Mirco output.

As with all Android phones, you'll have full access to the Android Marketplace as well as a plethora of other Internet and social networking options like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr.  The Triumph is also capable of playing and viewing most commonly used video, audio, and photo formats (see the entire list below) and should make for a great media hub on the go.
