The Motorola Moto G is hands-down the most affordable Android bargain around, and US Cellular just confirmed it will offer the handset for $99.99, off contract.

If you're not familiar with the Moto G, you should be -- since the scrappy little gadget packs Android 4.4 KitKat (the freshest Google flavor) and a sizable 4.5-inch screen into a quality chassis. Yes, despite its ridiculously low price, the Moto G is solidly built yet it's compact enough to slip into all but the tightest of pockets.

Echoing its more premium sibling, the Moto X, the Moto G also has a degree of customization options. You can swap out the phone's back plating in favor of soft-touch covers available in a myriad of bright colors and shades. Other attributes include a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. For taking pictures and video, the Moto G relies on a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash.

If you're expecting this version of the Moto G to be unlocked, you'll be in for a letdown. The US Cellular Moto G model is tied to the CDMA wireless carrier, so bringing the device to another provider is out of the question.
