Motorola today announced the Moto G, which quickly and easily claimed the title of being the world's best smartphone at under $200. The entry-level 8 GB model is just $179 while the 16 GB model is $199. These prices are for off-contract, unlocked phones sold through Motorola; carriers will have their own pricing according to plans and markets.
Today at Google Toronto, we got to go hands-on with Motorola's Moto G phone. The Moto G will actually be launching in Canada this month, ahead of the U.S. release in January 2014. In Canada, Telus and its flanker brand Koodo will be selling the 8 GB model for $200 with no contract commitment required.
