Motorola originally stated that it would begin selling the Moto G in the United States by January, but the company announced today that the Moto G is already available for purchase beginning today - sort of.
The Moto G is on sale right now at Motorola.com for $179 without a contract. However, that is strictly for the SIM-free, unlocked GSM model sold directly by Motorola. That means the phone is only compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, and the MVNOs that operate on their networks. The CDMA versions for Sprint or Verizon, as well as the GSM versions sold directly through carriers, will not arrive until January 2014 as planned.
Customers looking to bump their internal storage from 8GB to 16GB can purchase the higher capacity version for $199. Both models of the Moto G come with a 4.5-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, and a promise of receiving Android 4.4 KitKat early next year. Read more about the Moto G here. Purchases can be made at Motorola.com.source: Motorola
