Moto X Dev Edition and T-Mobile model get $100 price drops

Moto X Dev Edition and T-Mobile model get $100 price drops
The on-contract Moto X has gotten price drops all around, and now the off-contract models are finally getting price drops as well. All of the Moto X models that are sold directly from Motorola are getting price drops, meaning the T-Mobile variant and both Developer Editions of the Moto X are now $100 less than before.

So, the T-Mobile version which had cost $599 is now $499; and, both the GSM and Verizon models of the Developer Edition are now listed at $549 rather than the previous $649 price tag. These price drops are coming at something of a potential turning point for the Moto X. The device has had a relatively slow adoption rate since its release, and the next couple weeks could prove to be a shot in the arm for Motorola. 

The general rumors point to the idea that the other three major carriers in the U.S. are going to get access to the Moto Maker customization tools. Motorola will soon be able to start marketing its main feature - the customization - to customers on all four major carriers. Combine that with an attractive lower price point all around, and it will be interesting to see if Motorola can make any waves this holiday season.

Moto missed its chance. Better camera, 1080p and a snap 800 would of made their price tag valid.

I think a six core processor would have been a real battery downer. So that would have been a negative IMO. However, a 1080p screen was a must, and expandable memory w/ a larger battery would have made me sale my S4 for it. That's my only 3 issues. MInimum of a 2500 mah battery and SD card slot would have gained my business.

Oh, and better pricing. It should have been no more than 500 off contract. And the Moto maker tool should have been available at release.

The AT&T exclusive Moto-Maker didn't help either. I know I would have gotten one sooner if it was on Verizon at launch.

This phone should cost no more than $299.00-$350.00 unlocked...Moto/Google must have lost their mind trying to sell this 720p/small battery phone for damn near $700.00...

It's always entertaining to see fools expecting low prices for devices whose value they clearly don't comprehend.

I thought Motorola had gone bankrupt because of their crappy line of IPhones
When did this phone come out?
I haven't seen it in my local apple store.

Your name is truly the funniest thing about your post, because it's so ironic.

Droid ultra is 450, so the x should at least be at that price point. Maxx is 499.... X has to be lower than that. Sep point, g2 is 450 now? Nice! This is where they should all be headed....
