With the US being a part of the second wave of Moto G launches, we’ve now learned being in the later group has an intrinsic benefit. According to Motorola SVP Mark Randall speaking to Omio, “Wave 2, products that we ship after Christmas will start with KitKat…Wave 2 is in the US, there’s South East Asia, and other countries.”

The Moto G launching with KitKat is likely to make waves with customers as many Android 4.3 Jelly Bean smartphone owners will find themselves patiently waiting for their own KitKat software update by the time the Moto G arrives stateside.

The Moto G is Motorola’s attempt to cause a stir in the smartphone market with a mix competitive internal components and a ridiculously awesome entry-level price tag. There’s little question Motorola is looking to shake up the market by showing you don’t need to pay $500 or more for “high-end” performance when you can pay sub-$200 and find a great everyday experience.
