Motorola Promises Next Smartphone Will Be “made to last” and “priced for all”

The Verge: This affordable and durable smartphone will be launching in two weeks on May 13, 2014 in London. The Moto G is already quite affordable starting at US$199 for the 8GB version.

For that price you’d think it’s a barely usable smartphone, but it isn’t: 4.5-inch 1280×720 display with Corning Gorilla Glass, 5 megapixel camera good for capturing 720p video at 30fps, and powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC. On the software side of things the Moto G runs the latest: Android 4.4 KiKat. The only thing missing is LTE.

Maybe Motorola is working on a more durable, affordable, and a lot faster (LTE) Moto G.
