Motorola unveils the ultra affordable Moto E and Moto G LTE variant

Motorola's attack on the remaining portions of the smartphone market continues with the Moto E. If you thought that the Moto G was mindblowingly affordable, Motorola has yet another trick up its sleeve. The Moto E will be coming to Canadian carriers in June, but at a surprising price of $179 CAD. This is odd because the US version will cost $129 instead and that's without mentioning the fact that the Moto G is available (depening on the carrier) in Canada for $150.

Considering specs (Qualcomm Snapdragon 200, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, microSD slot up to 32GB, 4.3in 540 x 960 qHD) the Moto E is a significant downgrade from the Moto G but in Canada actually can cost more (or is only slightly cheaper).

This makes it a bit more of a harder sell, but we look forward to getting or hands on a Moto E ourself to see how it performs with lower specs.

On the topic of the Moto G, Motorola also took the opportunity to announce an LTE capable variant of the Moto G with microSD card expandability. It will be available from Fido and Rogers for $225 and $275 respectively.
