Moto X Will Drop To $100 On Contract By Q4 2013

/ 5 years ago


Motorola’s Moto X smartphone currently costs $199 on a two year contract with AT&T or Verizon but apparently Google and Motorola are planning to slash that price in half, to $100 on contract, by Q4 of 2013 in an effort to increase sales of the new handset. This is hardly surprising a surprising move as Google’s recent price cut on the LG Nexus 4 is probably impacting on the Moto X’s sales quite a bit. Though it is still quite unusual to see a price cut come so early in a product’s life cycle but it isn’t exactly unlike Google, or any other aggressive Android smartphone vendor for that matter, to reduce the price of their handsets wherever possible to boost sales. The message is clear – if you’re looking to get the Moto X then you should wait until Q4 (October-December) of this year if you want the best deal.

      Don’t fret, it’s only a materialistic smartphone, nothing special really.

      • Matthew Humpherson says:

        True I guess but still stupid that they arnt releasing a phone to such a large percentage of the market.

        • Wayne says:

          Yeah but this kind of thing is nothing new.

          • Matthew Humpherson says:

            Yeah and I cant see it changing any time soon.

          • Wayne says:

            You’ll soon forget all about this and eye up something else. As a consumer, investing heavily in the high tech market will soon see you in the poor house. Unless your name is Steve Ballmer or Bill Gates, you can’t keep on affording to buy into the latest & greatest tech.

          • Matthew Humpherson says:

            Well I definitely don’t do that its just my contract has just finished so I am in the market for a new phone at the moment so I want to get the best one I can afford as it wont be replaced for probably 3-4 years.
