Boost Moto G Launches on HSN for 149.99 (99.99 After Rebate)

Only days after a leaked image of it appeared on Twitter, the Boost Mobile version of Motorola's Moto G Android phone is now available on HSN.com for $129.99. It comes with a free case and car charger and there's a $30 $50 HSN mail-in rebate available making the price $99.99 $79.99 after rebate.

Update 1/3: HSN has increased its mail-in rebate from $30 to $50.

Update 1/6: HSN has raised the Moto G bundle price to $149.99 ($99.99 after rebate).

The Moto G is a 3G only (no LTE) phone with otherwise high-end specs including a quad-core processor, 4.5 inch 1280 x 720 HD screen, 5 MP autofocus main camera with flash, 1.3 MP front facing camera and a 2070 mAh battery.

According to HSN it runs Android 4.3 JellyBean. The unlocked GSM version of the Moto G has received an OTA upgrade to 4.4 KitKat. Boost has been pretty good about updating its recent Android phones so I expect the G will get KitKat eventually.

Update 1/2: Boost has announced that  the Moto G will get "a guaranteed upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat expected as early as February"

To get the mail-in rebate, the Moto G must be purchased by Jan 17 and activated by Feb 28. It must remain active on Boost for at least 45 days. HSN says to allow 8 to 10 weeks for the rebate to arrive.

The Moto G works on Boost's $55/month Unlimited Android Plan which includes unlimited voice, messaging and data. After 2.5 GB of data has been used in a plan month, data speeds are throttled to 256 Kbps for the remainder of the month.

Boost has a rather nice loyalty program called "Shrinkage". For every six on time payments the monthly plan price is reduced by $5. The maximum shrinkage reduction is $15 making the monthly price $40 after 18 on time payments.|

  5. Great price, but no NFC?

    Is this a developer friendly phone (ie: unlockable boot loader without exploits) like the Nexus?

    1. Let's hope so. I might buy one on the hope that it will be easy enough to flash to Page Plus. No 4G means it shouldn't be that bad, but I read that Boost sometimes has diagnostic mode disabled on some phones. Hopefully Page Plus will just sell the phone in a few weeks or days, but if not, buying and flashing a Boost version might be an option.
