These can be picked up SIM-Free (unlocked) for as little as £100 if you already have an active (for 6 months) pay-as-you-go SIM on Orange. Or you can get a sim-locked one from Tesco for £99 8GB/£129 16GB and get an unlock code for £2 from ebay.

There are already a couple of active online communities set up to discuss and develop for the Moto G, take a look:
