Motorola recently unveiled the long-rumored Moto G, however the Moto X has had quite a bit going on lately. The handset dropped in price across the US carriers and perhaps just as exciting of news for those who had been hoping for a Moto Maker customized model -- that also came available across all four major US carriers. That of course, includes Verizon Wireless.

the smartphone called Moto G. This device is set to be priced at a cool $179 USD off-contract in the United States and comparable costs outside the states, making it a rather enticing proposal for prospective smartphone users both inside the USA and internationally. What we're doing today is having a peek at this machine as it prepares to launch in Brazil, then Europe, and eventually (by January) inside the USA as well.
Motorola announced the Moto G earlier this morning and as a lead in for the event, there was some talk of Kit Kat on the Moto X. There wasn't anything specific offered in terms of carriers, however Motorola did say Android 4.4 Kit Kat would be arriving for Moto X users in a "matter of weeks." Naturally, that depends of successful tests and carrier approval.
Motorola officially announced the Moto G earlier this morning. While there wasn't much in the way of surprises given all the earlier leaks and rumors, the confirmation is welcomed. Perhaps more important though, Motorola is now offering two options to consider -- the Moto G and/or the Moto X. As usual, any purchase decision will come down to individual preferences, however we can break down the specs of each device.
Moto G has been officially announced. As we were expecting, the Moto G will be arriving as a low-cost alternative to the Moto X. And while we didn't think Motorola was going to abandon the Moto X, we were a bit surprised to see them intro the event with a Moto X status update.
Motorola has wrapped the Moto G event and the handset is now official. This is another instance where the details were pretty much known given all the leaks and rumors, however the official confirmation is more than welcomed. To begin with, Motorola is touting the Moto G as being an "exceptional phone" with an "exceptional price." To that point, the handset will be priced from $179.
Moto X showed us that specs don’t always matter, either. What we didn’t get was support for some peripheral devices, but that’s all changed now.
Motorola will be announcing the Moto G shortly. The handset is expected to be a lower-cost alternative to the Moto X. And coincidentally, we recently saw price cuts for the Moto X both on and off-contract. Motorola also opened up the Moto Maker to all four major US carriers this week. But with all this Moto X news, a new report coming from the Wall Street Journal brings talk of poor sales.
Moto G is set for release this Wednesday in Brazil, but some interesting information has been finding its way out ahead of the launch. Motorola has set an announcement date, but we may have seen a clue as to when it will be widely available for order. There are also benchmark results that could tell us a lot more about how it performs, as well as some info about what version of Android it will be running on.
rumors and early sightings, Motorola has opened up the Moto Maker customizations for all four major US carriers this morning. Or in other words, customers outside of AT&T are now able to move forward and purchase a customized Moto X. Otherwise, the Moto X is priced at $99.99 on a two-year agreement and at the moment, the Moto Maker site is reflecting an estimated delivery of four days.
