Moto G now available through Boost Mobile

Just a quick heads up that the Moto G smartphone is now available through Boost Mobile. Priced at a mere $129, the smartphone runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (4.4 KitKat guaranteed) and features a 5-megapixel rear camera. Internally you’ll find a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 3G connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 2070mAh battery.

To pick up the Moto G through Boost Mobile you’ll need to head to boostmobile.com; retail presence begins on January 20.

Boost Mobile Reunites with Motorola to launch Smart and

Stylish Moto G with NextRadio

The Moto G is available TODAY, Jan. 14 at www.boostmobile.com and select Boost Mobile exclusive retail stores nationwide starting Jan. 20. This represents the first Motorola handset on Boost Mobile since 2011.

Priced at only $129.99, Moto G packs the features consumers want at a price that won’t break the bank, all without an annual contract. The affordable 3G smartphone comes with an impressive and highly durable 4.5-inch HD screen made with scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass and sports a super-fast 1.2 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon quad-core processor. Moto G is loaded with Android 4.3 Jellybean with a guaranteed upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat expected as early as February, making the Moto G the most up-to-date Android of any phone in its class. Customers also have the freedom to express themselves with a variety of colorful interchangeable backs, available from Motorola directly.

Moto G will come preloaded with the free interactive FM radio application NextRadio®. With NextRadio, listening to FM radio on smartphones is a new type of interactive radio listening experience. When compared with streaming, NextRadio consumes about three times less battery life than other music apps. That’s because the audio is coming through a built-in FM tuner instead of over the Internet.

For extra protection, Moto G has a water-repellent coating on the outside, meaning that a little rain won’t get in the way when taking a call. In addition, customers get an extra 50GB of Google Drive storage for two years and, as with all Android devices, Moto G owners have access to more than 1 million apps and content in the Google Play Store.

Additional key features of the Moto G include:

  • 5MP-enhanced camera with panoramic and continuous shot
  • All-day battery, 2070 mAh
  • Stereo Bluetooth 4.0 capable

To entice consumers to switch to Boost Mobile, Moto G is offered on Boost’s no-contract $55 Monthly Unlimited plan. Boost Mobile rewards its customers for simply making on-time payments. Unique from the competition, for every six on-time payments, the cost of the Boost Mobile Monthly Unlimited plan shrinks by $5 to as low as $40 per month for unlimited nationwide talk, text and data[1]. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone.
