Google's Moto G is contract-free

Google's new smartphones pack in features at low prices, Jawbone Up24 wristband adds a new twist, and PlayStation 4 gets reviewed before its Friday launch.

CNET Update ditches the contract:

In this episode of Update:

- Check out Google's new cheap Motorola phone, the Moto G . The phone's $180 price targets emerging markets, but it also makes it easy for customers to drop the traditional two-year contract . Google also made it affordable to avoid carrier contracts with the feature-packed $350 Nexus 5 smartphone.

- See if the new Jawbone Up24 can help motivate you to get healthy. (Spoiler: It won't if you have Android.)

- Don't expect to walk into a store to buy an iPad Mini Retina. There are reports of limited supply .

- Save attachments in Gmail directly to Google Drive , instead of downloading it to a computer.

- Take an early peek at the PlayStation 4 before it hits stores Friday.
