There are some things they should update whether it means 2.3 or not. The touch sensitivity you mention is one. The CM7 based ROMs are much better about that, and the UI feels much smoother. Bluetooth on the stock ROM is another, it won't stay connected idle for long. Gingerbread brings some perceived improvements like "better" battery life, and a generally better experience. But some are real measurable things. Talk on 2.3 allows video chat, it is not available stock (have to use Skype or similar), for example. Also Qualcomm has released newer graphics drivers for the Adreno GPU that make significant improvements in 3D performance. That would be nice to have. Additionally as time goes on, newer apps will stop working with 2.2 before they stop with 2.3. The new Firefox only supports 2.2 and above. How would you feel if you still had a 2.1 phone your manufacturer just didn't feel like updating. That's how we will feel soon on 2.2. Motorola is saying if they won't upgrade a device, it is because they feel it won't improve it. With ICS, maybe there is some truth to it, though devices like the new One V use the same exact CPU, GPU, and RAM but come with ICS from the start. But there is no way a proper Gingerbread update wouldn't improve the Triumph. Out of the box, the Triumph isn't a bad phone. But it can definitely be made better with a thoughtful update from the manufacturer. This thing is less than a year old, it's not unreasonable to expect improvements. It would be nice if they cared about delivering that. They don't owe us updates, but we don't owe them repeat business either.
