Verizon to offer Motorola Moto G for $100 off contract?
Taking on the extremely popular entry-level Nokia Lumia 520 and its T-Mobile branded twin, Verizon will allegedly sell the Motorola Moto G for $100. And that is an unsubsidized price that is off-contract. Meanwhile, a picture of the retail packaging for the phone has leaked. The picture was posted on the Google+ account of someone who appears to be a Best Buy Mobile employee who also leaked the $100 price. The phone will not require a Verizon contract, but will not work with any other carrier.

Considering that the phone comes loaded with Android 4.4, there could be some activity here, especially among those who normally would be intrigued by the entry level Lumia models mentioned above. For $100, buyers will be getting a phone with a 4.5 inch LCD screen, carrying a resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 329ppi. A quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU is under the hood, with the Adreno 305 GPU handling graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board along with 8GB of native storage.There is no microSD slot here, something you might want to consider. The back and front snappers are 5MP and 1.3MP respectively, and a 2070mAh battery keeps the lights on.

No word on when the Moto G will launch for Big Red.
