Moto G now available for pre-order on Amazon, as well Earlier this week we reported that Motorola had put the Moto G smartphone up for pre-order direct through their own store with a December 2nd ship date.
Today, Amazon has followed suit, but with a December 4th ship date.

The unlocked global GSM-based phone sells for just $179 (8GB) or $199 (16GB) without contract and features a 4.5-inch 720p LCD TFT display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM and dual cameras, 1.3MP/5MP. On the design side, the Moto G looks just like its more powerful and expensive brother, the Moto X with some minor cosmetic differences.

Moto G handsets will start with Android 4.3, but KitKat will be rolled out by December. The Moto G was not given access to Moto X's software gestures, like Active Notifications, Quick Capture, and Touchless Control, due to its lack of the Moto X's specialized CPU/GPU.
