I got curious about Moto G pricing, so did a little comparison. The original G runs US$180, from both Moto and Amazon.com. Doing foreign exchange conversion and accounting for VAT, the equivalent UK price would be about £130. And although I've seen a nominal £150 list, you can indeed buy it from Amazon.co.uk for £119, and for £129 from Tesco (unlocked) when they aren't matching the £119 price. Similarly, conversion+VAT would indicate a Euro price around €160, and voila, Amazon.de sells it for €159, Amazon.fr for €150, and Amazon.es for €166. No Amazon for phones in Australia, but I've found local offers at the expected price. So whatever additional offers local carriers may decide to provide themselves, those countries can get an unlocked Moto G at "the Motorola price". In Canada, not so much. Amazon.ca does not carry the phone, and as far as I can tell there is NO unlocked Canadian distribution. You can now get Amazon.com (via Amazon Export Sales) to ship from the US for the original G, but this is awkward, much less visible, and costs more. It says something (although I'm not sure exactly what) about the state of the Canadian wireless market that our carriers, uniquely, felt they could afford to pre-emptively buy out any general distribution by Motorola here.
