The Moto X might be the new standard for Android handsets in the eyes of many, but Motorola isn’t showing any hubris about it. The Google-owned company will be having a big sale on the device soon, bringing the price down $100 for a limited time. By limited, we mean an hour.
That wasn’t a typo, either. For one full hour, Motorola will knock the price of an unlocked Moto X to $299. The sale, which is taking place January 27th, will be from 3pm to 4pm, EST. So, for all of us on the West Coast who want a Moto X — our Monday lunch hour is now occupied.
If you miss the sale, it’ll cost you $30. Once the sale is over, Motorola will still have the Moto X on discount, but it will only be $70 off. Rather than the $299, it will be $329 until February 14th. Even at that, it’s an amazing deal on a stellar handset.
Though the hardware specs are limited, the Moto X is one of the better Android handsets available. The tweaks Motorola made actually add to the experience, and are useful in day-to-day scenarios. From the quick launch camera (which you’ll use more than you think, we promise) to Drive Assist, Motorola has hit one out of the park.
Unfortunately, their website issues have proven the foil of many would-be wonders of their handsets. Site crashes and other issues have frustrated many, but there is probably nothing to worry about. Motorola always makes it right, even going so far as to refund money when needed. We just hope their site can handle the crush of people that will want a Moto X this Monday.
