Motorola Guns for Lower-End Market

Motorola on Wednesday announced the Moto G, an unlocked, no-contract smartphone running Android 4.3, Jelly Bean, to be widely available next year. An 8-GB version will be offered for $179 and a 16-GB version for $199. The rollout began this week in Brazil and parts of Europe, and the device will come to the U.S. in 2014. “Nexus devices are reference designs for new versions of Android, and appeal to early adopters,” said Motorola spokesperson Kristine Mulford. “We’ve chosen to focus our resources on products for a broader market.”
