A GSM version of Motorola’s budget-friendly Moto G has been available in the US for a while. The manufacturer is selling the SIM lock free phone via its own website and third-party vendors at price starting at $179. Given the combination of price and the handset’s specs, the Moto G is probably one of the most attractive offerings currently available on the market. A CDMA version will be heading to the stores in the first quarter of 2014 and, as confirmed by an official tweet, will land on Verizon Wireless in pre-paid flavor.
Moto G may arrive to Boost Mobile in February
However, it looks like Big Red may not be the only carrier to offer the Moto G in the US. A new image posted to Twitter by @evleaks shows the Moto G that is supposedly destined for Boost Mobile. Actually, the device does not appear to have any Boost Mobile branding, unless it is on the back, but the carrier’s logo used as a wallpaper is a pretty self-explaining hint.
The tweet does not reveal any particular launch date. However, if we were to read between the lines, we would suggest February 5th as possible release day, since it is the date displayed in the phone’s screen. Keep in mind, though, that the date is just our speculation and may have nothing to do with actual launch date.
At first glance, the phone does not seem to be modified in any way, meaning that it should offer the same experience as the model already available. Also, we have not reason to suspect that the price will be significantly different. In other words, unless Motorola and the carrier are preparing a huge surprise for us, the Moto G for Boost Mobile should be affordable and awesome.
