The Moto G was officially unveiled this morning. The device could hold some surprising value considering its price. It will be available for $179/£135 for the 8GB version or $199/£159 for the 16GB version. Both of these prices are unlocked and off contract. Here's a breakdown of specs:
- 4.5-inch LCD, HD (1280 x 720), 326ppi
