Moto X Already Down £80 To £299 In The U.K.
The Motorola Moto X can already be snapped up for £80 ($132) cheaper than its recommended retail price in the United Kingdom, thanks to retailer Clove.co.uk. The handset only went on sale in Britain on Wednesday, January 29, and most are charging around £380 ($625) for the flagship device.
Phones 4U, which has exclusivity on the white Moto X for the first three months, was one of the first to announce the device — and its charging a full £380 for it. Clove initially listed the handset at £330, but it has now reduced it to just £299 plus shipping.
Those who already ordered a Moto X from Clove at the higher price will receive a £30 refund before their handset ships.
Clove says it was planning to send devices out this week — on January 30 — but the device “required a firmware update before it was ready to ship.” That’s now complete, so shipments will start on Monday, February 3.
