Yesterday, it was rumored that Moto G will make an official appearance on another carrier in the States, U.S. Cellular.
It seems the moment has arrived, U.S. Cellular has announced the Moto G at an affordable price of $99.99 without a contract, a price similar to the one offered by Verizon. The handset is available for sale online right now, and will hit retail stores from February 10th.
If you take a closer look at the product listing, the device is priced at $189, but a rebate of $90 is automatically applied when you buy the handset, bringing it’s price down to $99.99 without a contract. For this price, it’s an amazing handset, and U.S. Cellular recently introduced a new $50 no-contract plan that give users unlimited text, talk and data (500MB) after which the speed is throttled.
If you can’t recall, Moto G rocks a 4.5-inch display sporting a 720p resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset with a clock speed of 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8/16GB internal storage, 2,070 mAh battery, 5MP rear camera for photos and videos, 1.3MP front-facing camera and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support LTE so users interested in the handset have to get used to 3G speeds.
