Virgin Mobile is going with stock Android, no more UI overlays.

Don’t like manufacturer’s UI? Well you’re not alone, Virgin Mobile doesn’t either.

wholly owned subsidiary of Sprint Nextel Corporation, Virgin Mobile, is going to start selling stock Androids.
That’s right, along with the announcement of the Motorola Photon 4G on Sprint’s network, Virgin Mobile announced the Motorola Triumph.

Motorola -Triumph

The Motorola Triumph on Virgin Mobile is a pre-paid phone. This phone has nothing to do with the Motorola Photon 4G from Sprint. This phone is overall a very good Android phone. It features a 4-inch touchscreen, 512 MB of RAM and 2 GB of ROM expandable to 32 GB via microSD card.
The Motorola Triumph camera is 5 megapixel, and will have Wi-Fi and GPS functionalities.

The best part is that the Motorola Triumph will be Blur free, Motorola’s own UI. The phone will come loaded with Android 2.2 Froyo. This Android version is old for now, but at least the phone is free from the manufacturers interface. Hopefully this will help getting faster updates.
It is Virgin’s Mobile decision to give the user the best Android experience possible. To do so, Virgin Mobile is introducing this first stock Android.

The Motorola Triumph is a pre-paid phone on Virgin Mobile and I absolutely agree with Virgin Mobile’s decision to push for UI free phones. The only question I have is, are pre-paid phone users really concerned about whether or not their Android phone is overlayed by the manufacturers own UI? Let us know what you prefer! Stock Android or an Android phone with a manufacturers UI, such as the HTC Sense or Motorola Blur experience?
