At the official Moto G announcement event we’ve been told that the phone would be available in the US in early January. There were some regions Europe and Brazil that got it at launch, and others, throughout Latin America, Europe, Canada and parts of Asia, that will get it even later than the US. Luckily, the phone is now available for pre-order on Amazon, unlocked.
Not only that, but it will ship, according to the website, on December 4, which is Wednesday. Of course, if you really wanted to grab one, it’s been available on Motorola’s own website for three days — shipping by December 2, though — but if you’re into Amazon, or missed it on Moto’s site, this one’s for you.
The price is the same, super competitive, $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB variant.
F0r that insanely attractive price you get a phone that rocks a 4.5-inch screen with 720p resolution, and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, aided by 1GB of RAM. Also in is a 2,070mAh unit that provides all-day-long battery, and in addition to all that, Moto G comes with Android 4.3, with a KitKat upgrade guaranteed to come later.
