Announced only two days ago, it seems that Motorola has learnt their lesson from previous phone announcements, ensuring stock is in-store when they say it will be. The Motorola Moto E gen 2 is now available to purchase from at least two retailers, with more expected to come on board.

The Motorola Moto E gen 2 is now available to purchase from Dick Smith, as well as from The Good Guys and as expected, the price has dropped from the initial $249 RRP to just $239.
