Boost Mobile to offer Moto G, its first Motorola product since 2011

Boost Mobile, the pre-paid Sprint imprint, has announced the release of Motorola's Moto G through its nationwide retail stores and online.

Additional key features of the Moto G include a five-megapixel camera, a 2070mAh battery, and Bluetooth 4.0 capability. Available for $130, the Moto G is offered on Boost Mobile's no-contract $55 Monthly Unlimited plan.
