Republic Wireless already pairs a discounted Moto X with its super-cheap Wi-Fi-based contracts, but now the company will offer an even cheaper option with the Moto G. Motorola’s entry level smartphone will land on the carrier some time in April for just $149 off-contract.
The Moto G offers mid-range specs and a respectable 4.5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS. The phone’s weakest spec is its lack of LTE capability, but that makes it a perfect match for Republic Wireless and its unique cell plans. For just $5 per month you’ll get unlimited talk, text and data based entirely on Wi-Fi. Meanwhile, $10 gets you unlimited talk and text from a cellular signal, while the top-tier $25 dollar package includes unlimited data as well on a 3G connection.
If you’re looking for a cheap Android smartphone, Moto G and Republic Wireless may be a perfect match. There’s no word on when exactly the launch will take place beyond some time next month.
