Motorola mobility has decided to slash price of it’s current flagship device Moto X to $99 for U.S. based customers. This offer can be availed only after you commit for a two year contract with your Mobile Service provider. Apart from that one needs to place the order using the Motorola’s Moto Maker Website.
Motorola launched this unique device on August 1 this year and was up for sale for $199.99 with majority of U.S. Carriers. If you already own one then you don’t need to worry as Motorola’s website says that you are eligible for $100 rebate in the form of Verizon Wirelss gift card, carrier credit, Motorola Visa prepaid card or any other goodies solely at the Motorola’s discretion. Though the smartphone is available with most of the U.S. carriers like U.S. cellular, Verizon Wireless etc. but only AT&T customers can customize their Moto X with different colors, accent & cases using Moto Maker website. The option of customizing your Moto X will soon be available to Verizon Wireless customers as well, though the exact date has not be announced yet.
Motorola’s Moto X’s Specs and features:
- Moto X sports a 4.7-inch, 1,280-by-720 display with 316 pixels per inch
- Runs Android 4.2.2 aka Jelly Bean.
- Motorola X8 mobile computing system supported by 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Processor, as well as a natural language processor and a contextual computing processor that handles the sensors, both developed by Motorola.
Motorola has set up it’s Moto X manufacturing line up locally (Fort Worth, Texas) so that it may be shipped to customers within 4 days of receiving the order. This steep price cut comes out when people considered $200 too much for mid range Android hardware. Motorola took note of this sentiment among consumers and halved the price of it’s 16GB variant of it’s flagship device. Moto X is Motorola’s first major launch since Google Inc. took over Motorola Mobility officially and they are trying their level best to make this phone a success.
