Moto X now available for $480 without contract at MotoMaker



Washington: MotoMaker is now offering the Motorola’s flagship smartphone Motorola Moto X for $480 without contract.

If you’ve been looking for a good reason to buy a Moto X without having to sign a two-year contract for AT&T, a $100 price drop might be a good reason.

After seeing the phone come down in price to $99 and $149 on the two-year agreement deal, Motorola has now also applied that same price drop to their off-contract pricing. That means you’ll be able to get a Moto X for as little as $480 without having to sign a two-year contract (add $50 for the 32GB version).

The Moto X features a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED HD display and is powered by a custom dual-core 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with Motorola’s X8 Computing System and an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit (GPU). The smartphone ships with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and is expected to receive an update to Android 4.3 in the near future. The handset includes 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM.

It is packing a 10-megapixel rear camera with the ability to record 1080p video and also has a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. When it comes to connectivity, the Moto X includes a 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. Motorola has included a 2,200 mAh battery that offers excellent battery life and the smartphone will be available in a choice of woven black or woven white.

Unfortunately, things still aren’t all peachy with the MotoMaker. AT&T is still the only carrier supported, though Motorola did promise that exclusively wouldn’t last forever. They still don’t have the wooden backs that some folks are holding out for. They haven’t even reintroduced custom engravings, with Motorola said to be having trouble ensuring the highest etching quality.

With all of those negatives it’s tough for many people to get excited about getting a MotoMaker edition of those phone, but if you’re one of the few who don’t mind the current stipulations and circumstances you can head to Motorola’s site to order yours today.
