Here’s another phone on the market with an FM chip: Boost Mobile has debuted Moto G, by Motorola (a Google Company), on the HSN, HSN.com and HSN mobile 1/2 for $129.99. The smartphone will be available Tuesday, 1/14 at www.boostmobile.com and select Boost Mobile exclusive retail stores nationwide starting 1/20. This represents the first Motorola handset on Boost Mobile since 2011.
Moto G will come preloaded with the free interactive FM radio application NextRadio. Says Boost: “With NextRadio, listening to FM radio on smartphones is a new type of interactive radio listening experience. When compared with streaming, NextRadio consumes about three times less battery life than other music apps. That’s because the audio is coming through a built-in FM tuner instead of over the Internet.”
