Motorola Moto X penny promotion sells out; 64GB model is here, but not everywhere

Motorola Moto X penny promotion sells out; 64GB model is here, but not everywhere
The other day, we told you about the promotion that Motorola put into play starting today. For 1 cent, you get a two-week trial of the Motorola Moto X, as designed by you on the Moto Maker site (with some restrictions, of course). After two weeks, if you decide to keep the phone, you pay the full retail price which is $349.99 for the 16GB variant of the device. The new 64GB version of the phone costs $499.99, although Verizon will not be offering it.

If you were contemplating taking Motorola up on this offer, forget it. Within hours, Motorola had sold out of the Motorola Moto X units designated for the promotion. In fact, by 9am EDT, Motorola wrote "That's it. Thanks for being a fan! We've sold all the Moto X phones we allotted for this promotion." It might be no surprise that all of the units put aside for the promotion have been accounted for. What is more important is the number of phones that don't get returned to Motorola in two weeks.

Were you able to score a two week trial of the Motorola Moto X for a penny? Let us know by dropping your comments in the box below.
