[liberationtech] Moto e5 Android phone now on sale in the U.S. for $99

This low-cost phone comes with 2 GB of RAM and looks like it overcomes some of the original sluggishness complaints about 
the Android Go operating system on earlier Android Go phones - such as the Alcatel. 

See YouTube video announcement here.

I'd like to see Motorola offer a version of the phone without cameras and with a battery that lasts half a day. If they could 
drop the phone price to $75 for such a variant, there might be a segment of the population (including educators) who might find 
that version of the phone -- at that price point -- suits their needs well. 

Too often companies try to guess what consumers want rather than asking us what features we'd like included or excluded.
