Verizon intros $99 prepaid Moto G

Verizon Wireless on Thursday announced that the Moto G smartphone will be available starting from January 9, 2014. Priced at a mere $99, the phone runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with a guaranteed update to at least Android 4.4 KitKat. You’ll be able to pick one of these through Verizon’s website next week followed by a retail presence in the coming weeks.

Customers will be able to pair the Moto G with rate plans that start at $60 per month for unlimited talk, text, and 2GB data. Should you need more data, a $70 plan offers 4GB per month.

We're giving stuff away to help celebrate our tenth anniversary. Are you in?

It’s pretty darn ridiculous the amount of phone you’re getting here for the money. With nary a contract in sight, it’s nearly impossible to resist. Hardware features include a 4.5-inch HD display, 5-megapixel camera and a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor.
