Motorola Moto G is a product of Google and for a change this device is going to be a cheap Smartphone. Once Motorola used to have a better share in the Indian Mobile market but since acquiring of the company by Search Engine giant Google, not much development is seen in India from Motorola. But now the Google owned Motorola is set to make a huge impact on Indian Smartphone Market with their much awaited Moto G Mobile which is set to launch in January 2014. The company has been selling Moto G in US Market for $179 (8GB) and $199 (16GB) which is really cheap for a device from Google. Now if we convert the amount in Indian rupees it will cost between Rs. 11,000 to Rs. 13,000. If the expected price of Motorola Moto G in India becomes reality than you can see a major drop in prices of Other Mobile manufactures like Samsung, Micromax, Karbonn and others.
