Google's Motorola Drops Price Of Flagship Moto X To $399, Without Contract

Motorola, a unit of Google Inc. (GOOG), dropped the off-contract price of its flagship Moto X smartphone to $399.

In a blog post on Wednesday, Motorola said that it is offering Moto X at an everyday starting price of just $399 on any major US carrier, without a contract. This includes customized devices.

"We've been hearing a lot recently from people who want a new premium smartphone at a reasonable price without having to wait for a contract upgrade. That came through especially loud and clear during our holiday flash sales," Motorola said in the blog.

Motorola noted that several wireless carriers offer good month-to-month or prepaid service plans that cost much less than the contract plans that come with subsidized devices. Combine one of those plans with its new $399 everyday pricing and customers could save hundreds of dollars over two years while keeping the freedom to change service providers when they feel like it. The company can even help them finance their purchase so they pay monthly for their contract-free Moto X.

"$0 down and zero Interest on all purchases if paid within 6, 12, or 18 months. Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the balance is not paid in full within the promotional period," Motorola said.
