Motorola Moto G headed for Boost Mobile according to leaked render

boost_mobile_motorola_moto_g_render_leak

When Motorola launched the Moto G, part of their goal was to put a capable smartphone in the hands of buyers not interested in the power of a top-tier smartphone. It makes sense then that Motorola would look for opportunities to place the device with carriers that target deal-hunting consumers. That appears to be the case with the latest press render that leaked according to Twitter tipster @evleaks who discovered an image of the Moto G sporting a wallpaper adorned with Boost Mobile logos.

Currently the Moto G is only available on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks thanks to its limitation to GSM. However, Verizon announced they would carry the Moto G on their prepaid network starting sometime in early 2014. Making the device available on Boost Mobile, which utilizes Sprint’s network, makes sense since Motorola is preparing a CDMA based version. This would also somewhat mirror the strategy Motorola used when it released the Moto X in offering exclusive Moto Maker capabilities to AT&T customers first with other carriers getting it at a later date.
