Republic Wireless has confirmed the upcoming availability of the Moto X. The carrier has announced the pricing, however there hasn’t been anything offered in terms of a release date just yet. And in addition to the Moto X news, Republic Wireless also detailed some upcoming changes to the available plans. Unlike the release of the Moto X, those new plans will go into effect in November.
That begin said, Republic Wireless will have the Moto X available for $299. And just to clarify, that will be an off-contract price. Those not familiar with the Republic Wireless setup may not realize they are an MVNO of Sprint. Basically, Republic Wireless uses a combination of cellular and WiFi and at present — has an unlimited plan available for $19 per month.
As of November the carrier will be adding four additional calling/data plans. They will also be keeping the currently available $19 per month plan. Those new plans will begin at $5 per month for unlimited talk, text and data over WiFi. The next step up offers a mix of cellular and data usage. This one is $10 per month and includes unlimited talk and text on cellular and WiFi as well as unlimited data on WiFi.
The following two plans are $25 and $40 per month and both include unlimited talk, text and data over WiFi. The $25 per month option then also includes 3G data while the $40 per month plan includes 4G data. Otherwise, while the new plans have been fully detailed, we still need some other details in terms of the handset.
In addition to a release date, or release timeframe, there hasn’t been anything offered in terms of the Moto X itself. In other words, we have yet to see any details released in terms of the internal storage and color options. Needless to say, we aren’t expecting Republic Wireless to have the Moto Maker customizations available though.
