Oh the weather outside is frightful, and Motorola’s Moto G delayed. Right, so it doesn’t rhyme… or make much sense. But it’s true. The big, precocious, glamorous Moto G US launch has been pushed back due to the havoc-wreaking winter storm Dion that’s hit, among others, a Fort Worth, Texas base of the Google-owned hardware manufacturer.
How bad are things? Not terrible, as orders placed via Motorola.com already are to be fulfilled by the end of next week (even earlier for some), being upgraded for free to overnight delivery. Now that’s how you handle a PR disaster waiting to blow up.
Besides, queues are not horrible for folks looking to get their orders in these days either, with 7 days set as the worst case shipping scenario. Meanwhile, Amazon has a bit of a serious problem on its hands, as it can only deliver pre-ordered devices in 4 to 6 weeks.
But hey, look on the bright side. In 4 to 6 weeks, the G should run Android 4.4 KitKat. Which is pretty much the missing link in making this the go-to Android for tech-savvy people on a tight budget. The rest is all there, from a spacious, vibrant 4.5-inch 720p panel to a zippy quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, generous 2,070 mAh battery and solid 1 GB of RAM.
