Incredibly cheap Google Moto G is available now for purchase in United States. It is now available from the Motorola official site for $179. However, the shipping will only begin by 2nd December. Earlier it was expected to be available only by January 2014.
This early launch came as a welcome surprise for many. It was earlier told that India will also get to see this device along with the US release. So it won’t be very late here as well. The problem when comes to the India launch of the device is that it is not yet known as to who will sell the device in Indian markets. Motorola had already closed their operations in India few years back. So it will be left with Google to do the sales and support or they will have to decide on who will do that. Whether Motorola resumes their operation in India is to be seen.
Though Motorola primarily aims international markets with this low priced device, they expect some what good reception for the device from budget conscious US customers. Moto G have already received praise from international reviewers and most have tagged the phone as best in its class and price range.
There are speculations that the price of this phone will be around Rs . 13,500 – Rs. 15,000 in India including the all taxes and additional charges. Still, with the specifications which Moto G carries is already a winner. Given the fact that re-branded Chinese phones with similar and even lower specifications are sold at this price Moto G will surely stand tall in this market. After all it is from a Google company.
