Motorola: Dual SIM support gives you the option to use the network that makes sense for who and where you’re calling and texting or combine your work and personal devices into one.


Interesting move. Apparently the dual SIM version is due for release in India as well.

Still no indication of which storage variant will be ranged locally.

The big mention of extra google drive space worries...are they going to say local storage doesn't matter...

It's symptomatic of the Google outlook - all the things in the cloud where they can be crawled. While there are some very valid arguments to be made around the volatility of micro SD cards, not to mention reducing the cost of a device like this by providing a lower-storage variant, I do find it slightly dishonest of Google & its subsidiaries to imply that this sort of practice is For The Greater Good and in the name of user experience when less local storage benefits Google much more than end users.

Still, extra Google Drive space is a nice extra incentive to pick up a G as a spare device or similar.

From the above site

" Dual SIM support gives you the option to use the network that makes sense for who and where you’re calling and texting or combine your work and personal devices into one."

No, 15GB is the default storage space for a Google Drive account.

The UK model updated to 4.4 yesterday. I've switched my fiance over to the ART runtime, we'll see if she notices any difference or if battery life is better - yes I told her!

The release:


Introducing Moto G in New Zealand

People all around the world want to be a part of the mobile Internet so they can access the world’s information, share, and connect with the things that matter to them. But the smartphone industry has relegated hundreds of millions of smartphone buyers to second-class status, preventing them from experiencing the mobile Internet at its best.

That’s because price-conscious consumers who don’t want to pay $750 or more for high-end smartphones have been left with two bad options. The first is to buy cheap, new smartphones made with second-rate technology that don’t do justice to modern apps and experiences like navigation, video chat and games. The second is to buy “low cost” versions of premium products that were released two or three years ago and are already obsolete.

Motorola think there should be a better option. Everybody deserves to be on the mobile Internet, and price shouldn’t stand in the way of anyone having a truly good smartphone to get him or her there.

Today Motorola and Brightstar, one of the world’s largest wireless distribution companies, introduces Moto G to New Zealand. Moto G is a smartphone that delivers a premium experience for a third of the price of current high-end phones.

Moto G includes:

 

  • A brilliant 4.5-inch HD display - the sharpest in its class - which goes edge-to-edge so you can enjoy movies, photos, video chats and more.
  • The newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor featuring a quad-core CPU for seamless multitasking and enjoying the web, videos and games, with all-day battery life.
  • Android 4.3 Jellybean, the most up to date Android of any phone in its class, with a guaranteed upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat at the beginning of 2014. No skins to clutter or slow the experience, and great performance with Google’s unbeatable mobile services such as Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Chrome and Hangouts.
  • Stylish design with a comfortable curved back.
  • Dual SIM support gives you the option to use the network that makes sense for who and where you’re calling and texting or combine your work and personal devices into one.
  • With its Quad-Band 3G support it will work seamlessly on any New Zealand network.
Moto G owners also get an extra 50GB of Google Drive storage free for two years to safely keep and share photos, documents and other files (that's on top of the standard 15GB). That’s a total of 65GB! With that much space, you can securely store up to 7,000 music files, up to 14,000 pictures taken with your Moto G camera, or up to 500 HD video clips recorded on your phone. Offer must be redeemed within 30 days of activation.

Pricing and Availability
Moto G will be available at national retailers Harvey Norman and JB Hi-fi from 21st January 2014 for the exceptional price of $299RRP. It will also be available from 2degrees stores in early February.

I wonder if this means Motorola will have to acknowledge that New Zealand is not a part of Australia.
