Motorola took the wraps off of a new Android smartphone on Tuesday with a price point that targets those who might be just looking for a cheap cellphone. The Moto E comes with a no-contract price of just $129 and focuses on durability and basic features to bring more users into the smartphone market.
The mobile phone features a water-resistant coating with a gorilla glass screen similar to what Apple has used on the iPhone. The display is 4.3 inches and it comes with a 5-megapixel camera and 4GB of storage – not enough to store much of anything these days, but plenty to get someone new into a smartphone.
The Moto E runs the Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and Motorola says it will be available to the US and Europe later in the week.
