Moto G: No, the ‘G’ doesn’t stand for gangster, but Google most likely, as Motorola has prompted Google to dive into the low-cost smartphone market. Why? Well, the relatively high priced, U.S.A. made Moto X has not done as well as the company would have liked.
Numbers released from Strategy Analytics shows Motorola shipped less than 2 percent of smartphones across the globe during the third quarter,
To salvage the loss on the Moto X, Motorola released it will be cutting its price from $200 to $100 and may even be sold for less than that making the perfect opportunity to donate your old phone and pick up a new Moto G or Moto X for the holidays!
The opposite has been seen for apple’s low-cost iPhone, iPhone C as it brings in “weak sales” since its September launch. Orders have escalated, however, for their flagship iPhone 5s.
Will Moto G have what the iPhone C doesn’t?
Apparently, it’s the off-contract pricing where the Moto G shines.
Let’s hope the Moto G can rattle some Apple and Samsung cages by tapping into the low-cost smartphone market.
