    I know MANY of us are waiting impatiently for the phone to come out... I'm one of them.

    I've noticed some screen protectors and such have started popping up online for sale for this phone. Some are the static cling vinyl... <-- not a fan
    I wonder what other screen protectors are comparible from other phones that will fit on the Triumph.

    I would assume since this phone is so close to the DX that a DX case would fit just fine (which I'm using mine for the Triumph)......

    Ultimately, I prefer to have a screen protector ready to install on the phone the moment it comes out of the box.

    Anyone care to discuss what they've found and want?

    I have a Zagg screen protector on my Op. V which I put on right after removing the shipping plastic. It's gotten pretty beat up in the five months I've had it but they don't have one for the Triumph yet.

    Also I have a body glove that clips onto my belt. I'd love to get one for the Triumph, but once again, I see nothing available yet. I have ordered a cheap generic case to carry it until the accessories come out.

    After constantly reading on this forum for the past few months I decided to finally join here and this is my 1st post.

    As far as a screen protector goes, I've always bought them online at Amazon by a seller Prestige Solutions. I just bought my Triumph screen protector from them yesterday. I trust these guys and they are awesome. Here's the link:

    I bought a pack of 6 from China for 2 bucks. Yup, they won't be as nice as Zagg's, but oh well!

    I'm a fan of the anti-glare kind that comes packaged sandwiched between two protector films....

    But that's just me.. I like the slippery feel and no fingerprints.

    Xtreme Guard Screen Protectors work great. They are crystal clear after they dry. Yes, it does require the soapy water to adhere to the screen. No bubbles in my experience with two of them. I ordered mine last weekend, and received it today. I bought it on eBay for $3.99.

    Just picked up a rocketfish mobile case for the motorola triumph today from best buy.

    The case was locked away and not on display. sold for about 20 dollars. The case is a see through light grey vinyl case. The upc number on the case is 600603142741 and the product number is rf-mtvt.

    I have the same rocket fish, also from BB. A BIT slippery for my taste, but it will do until I hear more recommendations from the wonderful members of this thread. It is nice in that it doesn't add too much heft/further width. I like that the volume and power buttons are covered. Doesn't diminish from the screen edge/breadth either. I would love to hear about a red case- I set my phone down around the house, and will probably be looking for my missing red OV for a while to come. :)

    After you put it on can you tell us if its slippery or if it has a decent grip to it? Thanks.

    I'm not buying any case unless it's from Seidio for when they hopefully release a protruding extended life battery LOL

    My review at BestBuy of the Rocketfish virgin mobile Triumph case:

    This is a wonderful case. It's adds virtually no bulk but I imagine it is more shock absorbing than a skin sticker. The screen may still need some protecting though, but it's good to know that if you lay it face down, the case will keep the actual touch screen from touching a table's surface.

    Biggest con: I would have liked more room for a large audio jack to fit easily. As it stands I use a small audio extension cable to make it into my car's thicker system cable.

    The HDMI ports and Micro USB port work well. The power and volume buttons work as well. Doesn't block anything. Good openings for sensors, speakers, mic, etc.

    The case itself isn't too sticky like other silicon cases, nor is it too slippery. So it easily slides in and out of pockets without getting stuck, while not sliding around on a table.

    Sometimes the boxy corners of the VM Triumph just irritates my hand. This has a good feel in hand, as it adds some a more curved fit into my palm.

    Flexible, but rigid. Easy enough to remove phone. Won't pop out accidentally, so far. Nice color.
    Even though I appreciate the amazing Otterbox hybrid designs, (which I have used on my previous Optimus V) this will be enough case for me to stop searching.

    What's great about it: Thin, lightweight, protective.
    What's not so great: Would have liked larger audio cable input jack.

    I got one yesterday at Best buy, surprised they weren't sold out. Wasn't expecting much, but very happy with it. Feel like it's protected, and the openings are just right where they need to be, not a rushed design like I thought it would be. This is just a place holder for a belt mounted case, though for me. I don't like having those waves in my pocket.
