Off-contract MotoMaker Moto X drops to $479.99

The off-contract price for the MotoMaker version of the Moto X is now a very attractive $479.99 for the 16GB model and $529.99 for the 32GB model. The only better news would be if we saw price drops on the T-Mobile variant (which is still a slightly absurd $599.99 for a 16GB model) and the Developer Edition (which is on par at $649.99 for a 32GB model).
If the T-Mobile model sees a price drop and gets added to the MotoMaker customization fun, that could potentially sway a few users this holiday season, especially if the Nexus 5 has supply issues (which isn't looking likely from what we've heard.)
- Display 4.7" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 10 MP / 2 MP front

Nice... If only they offered a 64gb version for somewhere around US 599.00, I'd definitely buy one... 32gb just isn't enough for my rather extensive music/photo collection. Still... Easily one of the most innovative and beautifully engineered smartphones to be released in years.

...Drop another $130...and I'll go get the NEXUS 5! MOTOROLA really, really, really blew it this year with the overblown hype on a phone that we all very much wanted...until the OFF-Contract price came out with the Mid-range specs on this Xphone...TRAGIC.

I really like it, and honestly the price on that phone should have been around that price range at launch if not much cheaper. I just hope Verizon gets Moto Maker in November like it has been rumored. I really want to get my girlfriend one for Christmas and be able to customize it for her, because she really wants one.

That's too bad. I wonder if this is in response to poor order numbers and in an attempt to keep the employees working. They should have launched this service with support on all carriers simultaneously, that would have created significantly higher interest. I just picked up a Note 3 because I love huge phones. But I recommended the Moto X to a friend of mine; the deal breaker for him was the lack of built in Qi. So my friend is waiting on a Nexus 5. Motorola definitely had some missed opportunities.
