Moto G unveiled with guaranteed KitKat upgrade

Upstream, the mobile monetisation company, has revealed that 41% consumers are not willing to spend more than $200 on buying a new phone and 36% want high-end devices at a lower price.

Google may have the answer to such demands. Motorola, now owned by Google, has launched the Moto G. The phone comes equipped with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, a quad-core CPU that allows for multitasking – web surfing, gaming and video watching.

Moto G is priced at $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for 16GB and allows access to Google services like Gmail, Google Chrome, Google Maps, Google Hangouts and YouTube.

It runs on the Android 4.3 Jellybean OS as of now but guarantees update to Android 4.4 KitKat in early 2014.

With this phone Google aims to target the emerging markets with a completely western experience. Many feel that this is the first global phone ever.
