It’s been a few short days since we’ve heard that the Verizon Moto G could be sold for $100 off-contract, but it didn’t take long for Best Buy to confirm that (and to put the thing up for sale). Folks are reporting that Best Buy stores are starting to receive Verizon’s version of the device, and that it is indeed being offered at that $100 price point.

The Moto G doesn’t have 4G LTE, of course, meaning any prospective buyers will need to put up with Verizon’s CDMA 3G network for data. That network isn’t exactly the bee’s knees in this day and age, but there’s not much complaining to do for just $100.

The Moto G has already started getting its Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade, which is a pretty big deal considering a ton of other phones have yet to receive that same love. Data concerns aside, $100 for what’s essentially a mid-range device is a pretty damned good deal. Here’s what you can expect for the price:

  • 4.5-inch 1,280 x 720 display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 400)
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8GB of internal storage
  • 5MP rear camera
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • 2,070mAh battery
  • Dimensions: 130 x 66 x 6-11.6 mm
  • Weight: 143 g

Not a bad list, eh? Be sure to call or pop into your nearest Best Buy to see if you can pick one up.
