Talking tech since 2003

Are you in the market for a low-priced, but certainly not low-quality, smartphone straight from the father of Android – Google itself? Then you’re in luck; Motorola announced today that they have begun accepting pre-orders for the eagerly anticipated Moto G smartphone in the United States today, which will cost customers just $179 for an unlocked 8GB model, or $199 for an unlocked 16GB.

Customers who pre-order today will supposedly receive their Moto G well ahead of Christmas, with current orders slated to ship on December 2nd. As an unlocked 3G phone (no LTE here), the Moto G supports both T-Mobile and AT&T out of the box, with Verizon and Sprint options rumored to be launching in early 2014. Design wise, the Moto G has a lot in common with its larger, more powerful flagship brother, the Moto X – including the colorful back plates and high quality display.

Though inexpensive, the Moto G packs quite the punch with a quad-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, a 4.5″ display, 5 MP rear camera, 1.3 MP front facing camera, and Android 4.3 (with an upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat on the way.) Interested? Check out Google’s official Motorola Store to order yours today. I just did.
