KUALA LUMPUR (16 January 2014) – 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.
This is because price-conscious consumers who do not want to pay RM2,000 or more for high-end smartphones have been left with two unfavourable options. The first is to buy cheap, new smartphones made with second-rate technology that do not 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 thinks there should be a better option. Everybody deserves to be on the mobile Internet, and price should not 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, introduce Moto G to Malaysia. 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 software of any phone in its class, with a guaranteed upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat® in early 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 Google 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.
