Moto G Google Play Edition now offered in Google Play Store

Take a trip to the Google Play Store this afternoon and you’ll find yet another smartphone listed under the Google Play Edition devices. Indeed, Motorola‘s Moto G is the latest device to get the Pure Google treatment. Priced at $179, the unlocked handset works on either AT&T or T-Mobile‘s 3G networks.

There’s hardly much difference between this version and the one offered directly from Motorola. Already running a stripped down build of Android, this one will not look or feel all that different from other Moto G’s. Nevertheless, we suspect it will get a higher priority in receiving updated releases of Android. Not that Motorola has been slouching in that department, mind you.
