Motorola offers free Chromecast with Moto X, Moto G reaches Verizon

updated 06:37 am EST, Fri January 10, 2014

Streaming player accompanies unlocked Moto X orders until January 14th

Motorola has started to offer off-contract purchasers of its Moto X flagship smartphone a free Google Chromecast. The offer comes at the same time as the company's budget-oriented Moto G goes on sale in the US through Verizon, and a week before the phone manufacturer is expected to launch the Moto X in Europe at a special event in London.

The free Chromecast offer on the Motorola website, spotted by 9 to 5 Google, appears to be a limited time offer rather than a permanent change, such as the recent price drop to $399. The deal on the site for the free $35 media streaming device works through the promotional code "Stream," and will apparently run until January 14th.

The Moto G offered by Verizon is priced at $99 as a prepaid device, matching earlier rumors of its sale through Best Buy, with the $99 representing a steel discount compared to its normal unlocked price of $179 and $199 for the 8GB and 16GB models. The Moto G has a 4.5-inch 720p display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM, a rear 5-megapixel camera, Android 4.4 and 3G connectivity, but no LTE.
