Motorola can’t wait for January, gets started with US Moto G sales

As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve found ourselves quite captivated in recent weeks by the launch of the Motorola Moto G, combining affordability and value in a pretty impressive way. We’ve been seeing Motorola slowly roll out the phone on a global scale, and had been told that several markets – the US included – wouldn’t see Moto G availability until early next year, in January. Apparently Motorola just couldn’t wait that long, and today we see orders open for the Moto G on the company’s US site, and shipping soon.

Motorola’s selling both the US (w/1700MHz) and international (w/2100MHz) GSM versions of the handset, either available in 8GB or 16GB configurations. Prices are just we we’d been told to expect – about $180 and $200, respectively – and orders placed now will start shipping in under a week, by December 2.

It’s far from the most powerful phone around, but with a great price, crisp 4.5-inch 720p display, and the option for customization with colorful backplates, this has the potential to be a pretty tempting gift this holiday season – and the utter lack of service commitments make it so much the better.
