FYI the new Moto G is now starting to show up at retailers and you can probably get a pretty good deal on it

After supposedly launching in early September, the 3rd generation Moto G has begun arriving at retailers.

After experiencing what has become depressingly familiar for a Motorola launch the product took a month and a half for stock to actually reach retailers, starting mid October with Personal Digital, who’ve since run out of stock.

Thankfully, there’s more stock arriving at larger bricks and mortar chains with The Good Guys getting stock around a week ago, before finally adding it to their website in the last few days. But it’s not just the Good Guys who have the phone in stock, with Officeworks also reportedly now offering the phone for sale, though not on their website.

Both the Good Guys and Officeworks are selling the 2GB RAM/16GB Storage model, though The Good Guys have the upper hand here with a price of $348, while Officeworks are selling theirs for the RRP of $369. The good news is if you get Officeworks to price match The Good Guys, you could save 5% off $348.

If you’ve been waiting for the Motorola Moto G Gen 3, and if you’ve read Chris’ review of the phone, then why wouldn’t you, then head in to Officeworks and get price matching.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

While this is happening, they have already launched Moto G Turbo in Mexico! :/

The real question is will it ever receive an Android update (Moto E anyone)?

“Both the Good Guys and Officeworks are selling the 2GB RAM/16GB Storage model”

Are they? I have found it on the Good Guys website, but not on the Officeworks website?

Motorola just treat the Aussie market as an afterthought, and I dare anyone to prove otherwise.

I’m not sure it’s a case of Motorola treating the market as an afterthought, in so much as Motorola just being terrible at selling things.

No launch for them has gone remotely well. It’s really kinda pathetic.

Like a lot of people I’ve been wanting this phone since it was announced and even contacted Motorola this week asking about local availability. Frustratingly I was told they had no idea when that would be. I assume my regular Google searches is what led Chrome to display an ad from The Good Guys, which is how I managed to pick one up yesterday. The salesman told me they’d been selling fast, so they’ve obviously had them for a little while (I got the last one in store). It’s my first Android phone and so far I’m loving it.
