Stormy weather delays the shipments of the Moto G smartphone in the U.S.

Moto GThe launch of the Moto G appears to have been delayed in the U.S. due to the bad weather. The storm Dion has unexpectedly hit Motorola’s Fort Worth unit in Texas which is reportedly causing the delay. Thankfully, the delay isn’t too long as the smartphones will start shipping out from December 17 or even as early as December 14 according to some users. To make up for the lost time, Motorola will be offering free overnight shipping to customers who pre ordered the smartphone.

In about a week or so, we can expect shipping to become more streamlined as the storm settles down and things return back to normalcy in the Texas manufacturing unit. The Moto G packs a 4.5 inch 720p display, a 5MP camera, Android 4.4 KitKat, a quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of storage and a 2,070 mAh battery. The entry level model costs $179 off contract while the 16GB variant costs $199. It was recently discovered that Motorola isn’t making a lot of profits with the Moto G, so it’s banking heavily on its success.
