Moto X Costs a Penny on Amazon Right Now

Amazon's Moto X is the company's flagship device. Though its younger brother, the Moto G, is an extremely good value, it can be hard to ignore the draw of a flagship phone with top-of-the-line specs. Especially when that phone is the Moto X and can be customized to fit your personality. Unfortunately, the price of such devices can be a little hard to swallow.

The good news is that the Moto X is on sale on Amazon right now for just a penny. If you were holding out on getting the device because you couldn't justify the price, then now's your chance to save some dough. Of course, you still have to commit to Verizon for a full two years, because this is not an off-contract or unlocked device. Still, you're saving $100 over buying it directly from Verizon.

The Moto X uses the "Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System," which consists of a software-optimized Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro dual-core SoC clocked at 1.7 GHz, a natural language processor and a contextual computing processor. This is paired with 2 GB of RAM and a 2200 mAh battery promising up to 13 hours talk time and up to 24 hours mixed usage time. The phone also packs a 4.7 inch AMOLED 720p screen, 16 GB (standard) or 32 GB of internal storage, dual-band wireless AC and Bluetooth 4.0 + EDR connectivity, and location services consisting of aGPS (assisted), AGPS (autonomous), sGPS (simultaneous), Standalone GPS, eCompass and GLONASS.

    I am betting this is because Verizon needs to dump their stock of this phone. With the release of the carrier unlocked version directly from google opening for sale in ..... 9 hours, the price of the carrier locked version is sure to fall.

    "Free" (with 2-year contract). I'd rather pay full-retail for an unlocked version, thank you very much.
