More Motorola X Rumours

Posted In News, Reviews - By AndroidPress on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013 With No Comments »

A couple of days ago rumours resurfaced regarding the mystery device, the Motorola X.  If the rumours turn out to be true, we’ll have a non-Nexus, yet vanilla, device that features a 5″ edge to edge display along with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie.  Other rumours include the device launching at Google I/O.

Today a couple more rumours have surfaced regarding the device.  To begin with, the device will be headed to Verizon with a $299 on contract price tag.  But as previously reported it won’t be a Verizon exclusive but will launch across multiple carriers.  Secondly. it may be sold via the Google Play Store as well with no contract, just like the Nexus devices.  Finally, the device is supposed to launch on July 8, a couple of months after the proposed May announcement.

Now the $299 on contract pricing does sound a little bit scary.  However, when you keep in mind that this isn’t a Nexus device but instead is a Motorola device that is supposed to compete with the other top tier devices, the pricing doesn’t seem quite as scary.  Based on Verizon’s pricing, I’d expect a $600 non contract price tag or a $200 price tag on one of our ridiculous 3-year contracts.
