Motorola Now Selling Unlocked Moto G In The U.S. From $179


Motorola has begun selling its new Moto G handset in the United States, with prices starting at just $179. Orders placed today are expected to ship by December 2, ensuring you’ll have your new handset in time for Christmas.

The Moto G is the slightly cheaper alternative to Motorola’s flagship Moto X. It’s not quite as customizable — though it does have interchangeable back panels with 19 colors to choose from — and it has a slightly smaller 4.5-inch 720p display rather than a 4.7-inch one.

Inside the Moto G there’s a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. The handset ships with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean pre-installed, but Motorola says its Android 4.4 KitKat update will be available in the U.S. in January.

The Moto G comes in 8GB and 16GB storage options, priced at $179 and $199 respectively. It’s compatible with GSM networks in the U.S. — including AT&T and T-Mobile — but Motorola says a CDMA option will also be available in January.
