Motorola Triumph Review [Virgin Mobile]

Motorola Triumph Review [Virgin Mobile]

Today I have a sleek Motorola phone you'll want to check out. This is the Motorola Triumph and he learned most of his simple edges and design from the Droid X.

For a no contract phone this is a pretty solid buy for only $299 considering many phones of this level sold for $499 in recent months.

Dear Nintendo: How low can you go?

Nintendo tried to sweeten the news of its dramatically disappointing financial results, announced earlier today, with a pre-emptive price cut of the 3DS, but the outlook for the company is still grim.
