When Motorola officially announced the Moto G, we couldn’t help but be impressed. A quad-core handset with reasonably solid specs for as little as $179? Calling the handset a total steal would be an understatement.
Of course those in the United States have known for a while now that they would be waiting a while to get the Moto G, with Motorola instead focusing on international markets first. Previously it was believed the handset wouldn’t arrive until sometime in January, but no longer.
Not wanting to miss the 2013 holiday season completely, the Moto G is available for order right now with a shipping date slated for December 2nd! As expected, the handset will be offered in an 8GB model for $179, or a 16GB version for $199 – no contracts required.
So what exactly does the Moto G bring to the table? The handset is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU with 1GB of RAM. Other specs include a 4.5-inch HD display, a 5MP rear cam, 1.3MP front cam, a 2070 mAh battery and Android 4.3 with an upgrade to Android 4.4 expected sometime in January.
How about it, anyone planning on picking this one up? We’d probably act quickly, as there’s no telling how long the handset will be available before its initial stock is snatched up.
