According to an early Wednesday post on the Official Motorola Blog, the cost of the unlocked version of the Moto X smartphone has been reduced to a $399 price point by Google's Motorola subsidiary. The move to slash the cost of its flagship handset underscores Motorola's continued assault on the high margins of its rivals in the smartphone arena.
With the overwhelming response of potential customers botching Motorola Mobility's Cyber Monday Moto X deal, the company was forced to postpone the sale. In the postponed re-run of the sale, the first wave of the promotion kicked off on Wednesday afternoon, and a second sale is scheduled for next Monday, December 9.
Google subsidiary Motorola Mobility has revealed in a recent announcement that its new, unlocked, low-cost customizable smartphone - the new Moto G - is now selling on the company's website, as well as on Amazon. com. The online availability of the Moto G handset comes earlier than expected; but just in time for Black Friday sales.
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has revealed in a recent report that Google's Motorola subsidiary is apparently set to introduce a low-cost handset in its Moto lineup on Wednesday, November 13.
As per the report, the cheaper Moto series smartphone - dubbed `Moto G' - will be officially unveiled at an event in Brazil on Wednesday.
The Motorola Moto G has been spotted a few times of late; with each of the leaks revealing some new information about the rumored handset. The most recent of the Moto G leaks has come from GSMArena, which has disclosed that the handset will be a decently capable handset in the mid-range smartphone market.
