AT&T Moto X will run you $575 without a contract, $629 for the 32 GB version
AT&T has confirmed that the Moto X will cost $575 without a contract, and that's for the 16 GB version. The 32 GB one will run you $629, or in line with all current flagship phones, just like the $200 contract price for the basic Moto X jibes with what we are used to pay for the latest and greatest.

This is one area the Moto X definitely differs from the Nexus line concept, but let's not forget that the Nexus 4 is $299 only at the Play Store, and if there is a Moto X sold there by year-end, as we heard yesterday, it is likely to command a lower price than the one sold by carriers.

I'd rather take the moto x than the htc one or gs4, even at the same price. There are reasons, of course. Just keep in mind that we're not all equal and what is the best product for your needs and taste might not be the best product for everyone else.

the moto x is not a bad phone and yes, every person is different... but that doesn't justify the pricing of the moto x... it should have been cheaper

Yes, considering the specs of the phone, it's way more costly.

It could still be cheaper. Motorola may sell them unlocked for less or the Google Play edition may be less. Regardless, I think this is exactly why T-mobiles JUMP program will be a success. Also, I'm still willing to pay a premium price for everything else this phone offers because I don't need a quad core processor. All the check boxes are ticked.

Except that T-Mo isn't going to be stocking the X in the immediate future, so no X from Jump.

Exactly!! I mean, they announced the Droid mini for $99 on contract with Verizon. The Droid Mini and the Moto X are the same specs wise apart from the 4.3" screen on the Mini vs the 4.7" on the X.But, with both screens having the same resolution the Mini has the higher ppi, so I can't see why they're selling the X for $100 more than the Mini. It makes no sense.

I think, you are still using low end phone's and want a mid range one. Picking Moto X than S4/hTc One is no brainer.

How is it a no brainer? The Motorola X is the same specs as last years flagships from mid 2012 and their pricing it as a brand new flagship.

Then stick to it. 2012 is past, 2013 is the present.

I think you meant Picking s4/htc over moto x is a no brainer.

Samsung Galaxy S 4 from the Play Store would be a better option at that price.

$575/629 for this? You're better off getting the S4/One Google ed.

The price is insane, Google/Moto are on crack !! You can get an Xperia Z for $500 in Amazon.

You're dreaming! The only high end with this phone is the price. I better use my gnexus with 4.3 jb and removable battery.

Spoken like someone who has never owned either a GS4 or an HTC One. Go ahead and pay premium price for your mid-range MotoX. The rest of us will buy real phones.

I don't care about Moto X's performance. Moto's small chip can not beat S4's raw horsepower. Moto's bringing a knife to a gunfight.

1.7ghz dual core snapdragon s4 pro. Sorry that is significantly worse than the Nexus 4 which cost $350 for the 16gb version. I think the reason the phones price is so high is because its made in USA not China. Specs wise its about equal to a Galaxy s3 which is $400 off contract brand new.

Except the Moto X processor has beaten many a quad core already. Snapdragon 600 included. Definitely not in all of the categories but it is no slouch. Moto brought a 9MM and everyone else has .40's. The edge goes to Moto because their little 9MM has a laser pointer and scope and is using the right bullets.
