PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless While US Android users are all full of glee that they're finally getting the Samsung Galaxy S II in the United States, a far more significant Android smartphone is being developed... In China. It's faster than any other smartphone, has a beautiful and fluid user interface, top-notch hardware quality, a dual-partition setup so you can keep using the phone while it updates... And will sell for a mere $310, no contract or whatever other nonsense. Hello Xiaomi Phone.

Motorola Triumph

The Motorola Triumph, for Virgin Mobile, is only $299. It is Flash 10.1 capable, 4.1-inch, 800x480 screen, 1Ghz processor. It is a beautiful phone, and combined with the $35/month unlimited data (300 voice minutes) it is an unbeatable combination. Or you can get unlimited everything for $55/mos. The problem with many phones is the expensive plan you have to get with the phone. I've given up on contract phones - woo hoo!

Indeed. I know 4 people who have this phone (including myself), and all are in love with it (and the plan). In a couple instances the users switched from a contract plan, and paid their horrible Early Termination Fee, to switch -- because it'll pay for itself it just a few months with the savings you get on Virgin Mobile's unlimited data plans.
