Moto X

Some Android users absolutely want the latest and greatest devices, regardless of the price. Others are budget conscientious and will gravitate to mid-range or budget handsets all in the name of saving some cold hard cash.

Why settle when you can have the best of both worlds? Right now Best Buy is offering folks the opportunity to upgrade to Motorola’s flagship Moto X for just $99 with contract. The lowered pricing applies to AT&T, Verizon and Sprint subscribers. Even better, this offer is for both new and existing customers.

That’s half off of what you’ll pay when buying the Moto X directly from the carrier of your choice. You’re going to be hard pressed to find a better deal than this on the Moto X, with the exception of Amazon, where new users can get the Sprint version of the Moto X for as little as $79.99.

Is the Moto X worth picking up? Absolutely. Sure, it might not be as impressive in the hardware department as many of the other Android flagships out there, but it makes up for that by offering some pretty cool software features including Touchless control and active display technology.

So how about it, anyone planning to jump on this deal?

      nothing concrete on sales. but i can tell you they have produced roughly 500k units since sept 16. they for sure have produced 440k from 9-16 to 10-4. that is the difference in my imei numbers.

    Thanks for the news, been waiting for a price reduction. Picked one up yesterday, and am happy, happy, happy.

    For a hundred bucks I think its totally worth it, just for the customization features alone I would say its worth it. I’m just hoping that the new moto x will have a little bit more stock android like the nexus devices seeing that Google now fully owns Motorola. It would really give Motorola a big fan base if they did. So many people buy nexus for the stock android features alone, the moto x specs are more than enough and stock would push it right over the top.

    The article forgets to mention that all of the Non-Verizon contracts also includes $35 activation Fee and instead of adding a line for $9.99 and $30 data plan = $40, it lists it as a $49.99 increase to the plan, plus the $35, you’re right back at $199. I don’t think that’s tax included either or it wouldn’t equal $49.99 exact. So pick your poison (or clarify these details in the article)
