Verizon Moto G making its way to Best Buy stores, pricing set at $99.99

Motorola Moto G

Remember those leaks from earlier this week and showed the Verizon Moto G inside of a Best Buy store, complete with its retail packaging and a $99 price tag? Well it looks like those leaks were spot on. Best Buy has confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that the Verizon variant of the Moto G is now making its way into stores and that the device will be “available for sale as soon as it arrives.”

Pricing for Verizon’s prepaid Moto G is set at $99.99, which is $80 less than the GSM variant that Motorola is currently hawking. Just because the Verizon Moto G is cheap doesn’t mean that it’s a bad device, though; with its 4.5-inch 720p display, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 2070mAh battery, the Moto G is one of the best-performing budget phones on the market. Add in the fact that Motorola has been pumping out prompt updates to the Moto X and Moto G lately, and this $100 device becomes a pretty solid deal.

Now that we’ve gotten official word on the Verizon Moto G’s pricing and availability, how many of you plan on picking one up once it hits store shelves near you?
