Motorola and Google to livestream the Moto G unveiling
Google and Motorola have announced that the upcoming introduction event of the Moto G smartphone will take place next Wednesday, on November the 13th, and now they have also revealed the exact time and place of the event. The Moto G, which is believed to be a low-cost, watered-down version of the Moto X, will be introduced in Sao Paulo, Brazil, with the event kicking off at 9AM EST.

Well, for those who won't be around at that time, Moto and Google will also livestream the whole thing at Motorola Mobility's official Google+ page (grab the link below). So, thankfully, each and everyone who's interested in how Google is planning on Androiding (there you have it - a new word!) the next billion, will be able to do so using the live webcast.

The Moto G will supposedly feature a 4.5-inch 720 x 1280 screen with a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC under the hood and a 5MP rear snapper. A tweet from @evleaks claims that the phone will be offered free by carriers, in exchange for your signature on a two-year contract.

Pretty sure Justin and Jay Z would get in without an RSVP. This sounds like a solid device for free on contract. Way to go Motorola. Thank you for not overpricing this one. : )

Hi! Great news! Alan, only a typo on 'Sau Paulo', is São Paulo. Will this phone have the 'always listening' google now feature? Ty!

That's what I get for following the way it was spelled by the source. Thanks for the heads up and have a great time when you go :) In answer to your question, while the official specs have yet to be announced, it is rumored that the phone will have the 'always on' feature seen on the Moto X. Regards, Alan F.

I wonder what software version it'll ship with.

hopefully, but I doubt it. 4.3 sounds more reasonable.
