Motorola has dropped the price of the Moto X smartphone to $99. However, the orders must be placed through the Motorola Moto Maker and they must agree to a two-year contract. Motorola also said that existing Moto X owners might be eligible for a $100 rebate, which will be given in the form of a Verizon Wireless gift card, Motorola Visa Prepaid gift card, carrier credit, or other equivalent.
The Moto X is available on all of the major U.S. carriers and U.S. Cellular. However, AT&T customers are the only ones that can customize the phone with different colors and accents. Verizon is expected to get this feature next year.
Motorola launched the Moto X on August 1st for a cost of $199.99. The Moto X has a 4.7-inch display, 1280×720 resolution (316 pip), and Android 4.2.2. It also has a Motorola X8 mobile computing system with a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro.
The Moto X is being built in Fort Worth, Texas. U.S. buyers could have the device arrive on their door step within 4 days of making the order.
