Motorola To Re-Offer Moto X Sale On Wednesday & Next Monday


We hope you all picked up some great Cyber Monday bargains! However, consumers who planned on getting their hands on a shiny new off-contract 16GB Moto X for $349, a 32GB for $399. or the Moto X Developer Edition for $399 were sadly out of luck. Shortly after the products went on sale on the official Moto Maker website, Motorola’s servers crashed and many people were unable to order the handsets.

However, as a good will gesture, Motorola has officially announced on its Twitter and Google+ accounts, that it will be hosting its “Cyber Monday” deal again, tomorrow Wednesday, December 4 2013, at 12:00 PM PST and again on the following Monday, December 9, 2013.

Somewhat confusingly, the Google+ post indicates that the company has also added “more devices” to the promotions lineup, but we’re stumped as to what these new handsets might be, as the offer only applies to Moto Maker — which is an exclusive service for the Moto X.

Anyway, the Moto X is a very impressive high-end smartphone, which packs a gorgeous 4.7-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 1280, a snappy 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of internal storage, a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter and a disappointing 2,200 mAh battery.

The handset will ship running the latest build of “Vanilla” Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and will be upgradable to the latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat via a simple OTA update, which you will be prompted to complete the first time you insert your SIM card and power up the device.

So, if you still like the sound of the Moto X and want to design your own one off-contract with a $150 discount, you have been given another chance, just head on over to the Motorola official Moto Maker customization page tomorrow or next Monday.
