Moto G Announcement

Well, look at that.  The Moto G, which was announced a few weeks ago, and largely targeted at those with perhaps not the most padded of bank accounts, will soon ship here in the US.

When announced, the Moto G was due to ship some time in early 2014.  But now, according to Motorola’s page, you can preorder the device and expect shipping as of 12/2.  Cost?  It remains the same at $179.  It’s not the latest and greatest, like Google’s Nexus 5, but for the cash it’s a steal, especially for those that can’t or won’t sign another contract.  Yes, that price is off contract.

Just a few things to note before you take the plunge: it’s limited to 3G connectivity, albeit HSPA+, which is plenty fast on AT&T.  The screen measures 4.5-inches, and KitKat (aka Android 4.4), likely won’t make its way to the device until 2014.    Lastly, an extra $20 scores you double the capacity; 16GB.
