Moto E officially announced by Motorola only at ₹6999/$129

There it is folks, the Moto E has been announced.
We've known about it for a little while thanks to a
couple of leaks, one of which even included specs .

Today, Motorola held an event in India to officially
launch the budget handset, starting it at just 6999
Rupees (about $117 USD). Shortly after the show was
over, US pre-orders also went live with a starting
price of $129 without contract. The Moto E will
ultimately roll out to more than 40 countries over the
next few weeks.

The video promises a scratch resistant screen, water-
resistant splash guard, all-day battery (dependent
upon usage habits), customizable shells, and a
guarantee of an Android OS upgrade in the future. An
important detail is hidden in the small print which
specifies that the phone will "receive at least one
software update to the current KitKat 4.4.3 operating
system." It's likely that Motorola is just legally
covering itself in the event that the next major
Android version exceeds the capabilities of the Moto
E, but let's hope it doesn't come to that.

●4.3-inch qHD (540 x 960) 256 PPI display with
Corning Gorilla Glass
●1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200
●4 GB Internal Storage + microSD slot
●5 MP camera on the back (no front-side
●1980 mAH battery
●Dual SIM slots supporting 3G (Global GSM
●FM Radio
●Android 4.4.2 KitKat
The Moto E will only be available in black or white,
but customizable shells are also available with an
assortment of colors that may vary by market. Sales
of the low-cost handset to India will begin at
midnight (11:30 AM PDT), exclusively available
through Flipkart.com . US pre-orders are already
available directly through Motorola.com with an
anticipated delivery date between June 3rd - 6th for
both the handset and any accessories purchased
with it.
With more power and up-to-date software, the Moto
E is an attractive bid to emerging and low-income
markets. For other regions, Motorola is also kicking
off a new promotional site, GoodbyeDumbPhone.com ,
directed towards encouraging people to give up their
aging feature phones in favor of similarly priced
smartphones. This strategy turned out to be a
massive success for the mid-range Moto X, and it
may give Motorola a commanding position in areas
that are otherwise limited to very old and off-brand

our verdict : go and just grab it
