Alongside the launch of the brand new super-budget Moto E, Motorola also announced an improved variant of its marginally more expensive Moto G. The updated version is now equipped with an LTE radio and an SD card slot. Naturally, the price of the LTE model is also a bit higher at $219, which is still a bargain. Oh yeah, now it also comes in white!
This is certainly a boon to those seeking a low-cost device, but don't want to settle on 3G speeds. Several people are also likely to jump on this model simply for the new SD slot that was lacking in the earlier version. It appears that the side effect of adding an SD slot is that there is no longer an option to buy the phone with 16 GB of internal memory. This might be a deal-breaker for some people that install a lot of apps and games.
If you're interested in picking up the Moto G 4G LTE, get your pre-order in here or on Amazon. The phone and any accessories you order with it should be delivered between June 3rd - 6th. For only $40 over the original model, this is a pretty sweet deal.
