Motorola’s Moto G – the lesser and albeit budget-friendly sibling to the much applauded Moto X smartphone – is a much awaited device, especially in other parts of the world where its release is being impatiently awaited. We have named it the budget Android for the year, for a device in the sub $200 price range and with the specs to boot the device is definitely a steal.
Some time back we had got the information, via Evleaks, that the Moto G is headed to Boost Mobile. So far Evleaks hasn’t been off the mark too often. Boost Mobile has updated their website with a posting for the Motorola Moto G, pricing the device at $129.99 on Boost Mobile’s no-contract $55 a-month plan as well as a no-contract $3 a-day plan.
This is the best part of the deal – the Moto G is not on contract for this price; also Boost Mobile is a MVNO of Sprint – the same as Virgin Mobile – we can expect the device to appear on Virgin in the future, as well. As another option, the device is already available on Verizon for $99.99 “with no annual contract”.
For those who have been living under a rock for the last couple of months, the Motorola Moto G is a budget offering from the coffers of Motorola – which is now “a Google company”. The Moto G is aimed at mass markets and general users who either do not want to or cannot afford to buy the Samsung Galaxy S4s, HTC Ones and Sony Xperia Z1s of the world and who do not want to settle for hand-me-down devices. The Moto G packs a 4.5 inch 720p 329 ppi LCD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, internal storage in 8 GB and 16 GB options, a 5 MP primary camera as well as a 1.3 mega pixel secondary camera for video calls. The device is powered by a 2070 mAh battery and was launched with Android 4.3 Jellybean on board – which is now upgradable to Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
