Moto G now available in Canada

Following its launch in parts of Europe and Latin America last week, Motorola's new low-cost handset, the Moto G, has arrived on Canadian shores. The device has gone on sale today at TELUS and Koodo Mobile — on TELUS you'll get the Moto G for free on a 2-year contract, or for C$200 outright; on Koodo it's between C$200 and C$50 on the carrier's sliding "tab" payment system.

The Moto G delivers a 4.5-inch, 720p display and a quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, and runs near-stock Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with a handful of Motorola software additions. Stay tuned to Android Central later today for our full review of the device.

  • Great little phone for the money! Hard to beat that price, considering the hardware and software included! Posted via Android Central App
  • Will it work on any US bands?
  • Telus phones normally have compatible bands for both ATT and T-Mobile. I believe Telus also has the AWS 1700 so you should get hspa on both T-Mobile and ATT fine.
    I hope you know it will not work in sprint and Verizon because they use crappy CDMA. Best is Google what bands telus uses and then you will know if you all the bands needed for HSPA or 3g on T-Mobile and ATT. Posted via Android Central App
  • Telus uses HSPA 850 and 1900 that's 3G and 1700 AWS for LTE. You'll have to check the specs on the phone to see if it runs AWS HSPA for T-Mo.
  • My Note 3 that i'm currently using is a T-Mobile version that I picked up from the U.S. and after unlocking it i've had no issues using it up here on the telus network. So im almost positive that the telus/koodo Moto G should be good to go on T_Mobile or ATT
  • Is it coming to the US in time for Christmas?
  • No, it's already been confirmed to launch in January in the States. Posted via Android Central App
  • Congrats, Canada! Posted from the (4.2 updated) redheaded stepchild of the Nexii
  • Anyone know if this would work in Singapore if bought in Canada?
