Verizon cut its official price on the Moto X today by $100, dropping the device to just $99 with a two-year contract. The handset was already available for as little as $50 on Big Red’s network through third-party retailers, but now you can get it right from the source with a solid discount.
If you’re thinking of taking Verizon up on its new offer you may want to hold off for just a little longer though. AT&T still has an exclusive on the Moto Maker customization tool, but recent reports claim the site will open up to both T-Mobile and Sprint in the near future, suggesting the country’s biggest carrier won’t be far behind. So if you want your Moto X in blue with silver accents and your name engraved on the back, don’t buy the flagship handset just yet.
The Moto X comes equipped with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, a 4.7-inch 720p display, a 2200mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, a 10-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. The device runs Android 4.2.2 out of the box with a handful of helpful features on top including touchless control and Motorola Assist. It’s not the most powerful smartphone on the market, but it’s certainly a top-notch Android device.
