Moto G is the Motorola DVX?

On Tuesday, we told you that Motorola had trademarked the name Moto G; this led to speculation that a Google Edition version of the Motorola Moto X was coming while others heard that it was a device heading to Verizon. According to a source said to be close to Google's wholly owned subsidiary, the Moto G is none other than the Motorola DVX...

This price sounds cool for dual SIM Moto G, only other hardware should be at par. Bring it to Asia market.

This could compete with the Nexus 5 for value. Dual-sim as well? Yes please.

How sad! I thought Motorola would release a true flagship!

Since the Moto X does virtually everything your precious iPhone does, and pulls some tricks your iPhone can't do, while being just as durable and well made, I daresay it's worthy of flagship status.

As long as it's over 9,000 I'm satisfied. ;)

At least according to consumer reports and square trade. And I kinda trust those two.

Well, the 5s did pretty well in durability tests.
That rattling sound it makes is pretty unsettling though.

Please Moto add that big bad a$s 3500mAh battery to that much needed DualSIM phone.. I will definitely get one for everyone in my home...

Cannibalization much? This phone kinda doesn't need to be.
10. Sniggly (Posts: 7182; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)
Sure it does. Not everyone in the world can afford a 600 dollar asking price.

Nice to know that in Europe we're classed as an 'emerging market' and we get the cheapo cut down version, instead of the moto x. Way to go Moto....

That's a hell of an assumption to make. Nowhere does it state that. It likely refers more to countries in Asia and Africa, and South America as well.

The Motorola sites for Europe have a tab that says "we're working on something new" with graphics straight from the Moto X launch. It's only a matter of time for you guys.

I was hoping it was the rumored Moto Tablet. Sigh :(

What would a Moto tablet offer that Asus or Nexus 7/10 wouldn't? The big advantages of Moto phones over the competition are the stock UI, antennas, and call quality. None of those matter much with a tablet.

The same reason that I went with my Droid Ultra instead of an HTC One, Note3, S4,or G2. I like the quality of Motorola products and their UI.
23. roldefol (Posts: 3181; Member since: 28 Jan 2011)
Eh. I think Motorola should focus on recovering their market share of smartphones. Don't try to overextend like HTC did. I don't know how they can differentiate themselves in the tablet space.

These won't be made in the old TI building in Texas will they?

For real?! The Moto G is this thing?
You done got my mouth all thirsty for some orange juice & it's just a swallow in the container!

$200-$250 is pretty awesome for a handset that comes with a X8 chipset. I've been eyeing different cheap handsets now that we're moving to ATT. I'm pretty surprised that there are so many dirt cheap GSM phones on the market like the Blu phones. I just noticed the Blu Studio 5.5 phones have been listed on eBay at only $169. Very cheap for a 5.5" phone. However the FWVGA resolution and quad core Mediatek processor aren't preferable, but when you're looking at something so cheap still it's kinda amazing. Also I'm curious when one of the big manufacturers will release something to complete against the $99 Nokia 520. Amazing how prices are working their way down.
Except Apple who doesn't think the iPhone is profitable enough in France where they raised prices $16. Wasn't it 16 BILLION in profit they made the quarter before? I mean even their iPhone 5C which is made out of old melted down easter eggs costs way too much. "Unapologetically Easter Eggy." I'm not a Occupy Wall Street hippy but Apple just screams out corporate greed to me... But hey if the consumer is willing to put it on a credit card who am I to argue?
