Meteor have announced that the they are to start selling the Motorola Moto G in Ireland. Since its original unveiling the Moto G has created quite a stir, offering great specs at a very low price. Up until now getting one shipped from the UK had been the only option for people in Ireland who were interested in getting in on the budget action. Most of the other networks have stated they are not going to carry the phone so this could end up being a shrewd move for Meteor.
