Motorola TRIUMPH Announced

Today in NYC we heard of a device of some note: inside its chassis is a phone that's ready and willing to be your very first Virgin Mobile Android device from Motorola AND in fact your first Motorola phone on Virgin altogether. This device will be released with no contract plan in tow and although it wont be winning any contests for processor power, screen size, or storage, it'll certainly be a choice people have to make for the big V if they want a bigtime Android phone from the M, if you know what I mean.

Sprint’s new prepaid strategy is what Verizon’s KIN plans should’ve been

Whether or not Microsoft's KIN handsets have GenUpload appeal or not, one thing just about everyone outside of Verizon agrees on is that the carrier has priced the featurephone's data plans too highly.  Ideal time for Sprint to leap in with some massively impressive prepaid offerings, using its Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile acquisitions to target the youth market, those looking for affordable, contract-free unlimited service, and even those wanting cheap BlackBerry BIS support (from $35 all-in, voice and text included).

Sprint Q2 2009 finances revealed: $348m net loss, 257k customers down

Sprint have announced their Q2 2009 financial results, and while there are glimmers of hope in the shape of ongoing prepaid customer growth and stable post-pay revenue, the take-away figures are a loss of 257,000 customers over the three month period and a net loss of $384m on revenues of $8.1bn.  That revenue is down 1-percent from Q1 2009, and down 10-percent on Q2 2008, though Sprint did manage to pay off $700m of debt (although it still owes $16.4bn).
