Motorola Introduces The Moto G Phone for $179/8GB, $199/16GB!
« on: November 17, 2013, 02:18:56 AM »

Motorola introduced its new entry-mid level smartphone, the Moto G, at an event on November 13th.  The Moto G, which strikes a family resemblance to its big brother, the Moto X combines mid-level specs with an exciting design featuring replaceable back covers available in a range of colors and forms.  The hardware of the Moto G consists of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, a 4.5 inch 720p 1280 x 720 IPS display, 8GB/16GB of flash memory, 1GB of ram, 5MP rear and 1.3MP front cameras, 2070 mAh battery and Micro USB port.  The Moto G even features a built-in FM tuner to listen to your favorite radio stations on the go. Pricing is an aggressive $179 for the 8GB and $199 for the 16GB and will be available world wide and rolled out in various countries over the next few months with some available immediately.  US availability is scheduled to begin in January.  The Moto G ships with Android 4.3 but will be upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat soon.

Below is the full video of Motorola's event in Sao Paolo, Brazil on Nov 13th where the Moto G was introduced.

I agree.  If they can get a good marketing plan together that $170 price should really fly off shelves.  I think that American consumers will need to be educated a bit about the advantages of buying their phone off-contract though.  So many are so used to just signing a 2 yr contract and putting down $99 or whatever upfront and probably 3/4 don't even realize they are then paying for the phone for the next two years in small increments each month.  A clever Moto G ad would show how much a customer will save in the long run by buying the Moto G up front compared to a more expensive handset on contract.  I don't know how easy it'll be but that's the challenge for the marketing people.  Should be interesting to see what they do with this.  The industry is changing though...it's inevitable.
