Default Bad News, the Triumph may be a rebadged low quality Huawei

As you can see in this thread as well. http://androidforums.com/motorola-triumph/355638-moto-triumph-thailand.html

Supposedly according to a thread I was reading on a VM forum:

Triumph looks exactly like Huawei (X6?)
Motorola doesnt make any 4.1" phones
Motorola doesnt make any qualcom CPU phones (perhaps some old ones but nothing up to date)
Specs match perfectly.

A lot of people say well that Huawei is a GSM so it can possibly be Triumph, but it doesn't take a genius to know changing the radio in a phone model is a common occurrence and easily done.

Also from what I read that Huawei has a reputation for poor quality, slow and laggy, etc. I've also noticed in some Triumph videos it seems laggy, and I think at least one preview mentioned it too.

Bottom line I think it's pretty certain this is a rebadged Huawei. All is not lost, perhaps Motorola will insist on enough quality control that it's still a decent phone, but I'm definitely waiting on many reviews/user opinions before jumping in now.

Also I heard a rumor on that same board that a "real" Motorola phone will be coming to VM eventually, perhaps in Q1 2012. So if this is junk, likely better phones will come eventually.
