Moto G Available to US Consumers on Motorola Site
Motorola today made the Moto G Android smartphone available for sale through its web site. Consumers can buy the device directly from Motorola. The Moto G costs $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB model. The Moto G was announced earlier this month. It has a 4.5-inch 720p HD screen, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, and 5-megapixel camera. The Moto G ships with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but it will be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat early next year. Motorola is selling the unlocked GSM model only. Wireless network operators will sell the CDMA variant in January.
Fair price for increased space
Apple -- and, yes, other equipment makers as well -- charging a $100 or more for every jump from 16gb to 32gb to 64gb is nothing short of highway robbery. This isn't the 1980's; the technology charges doesn't justify the increased price. Motorola making it a nominal $20 more for more space is a consumer friendly decision though...
Well, if Motorola is making good decisions, maybe it is the 1980's again...
I think I have a problem.
