Here is something strange. A small cell-phone company called Republic Wireless may soon offer the Moto X for only $299 OFF contract. Yes, you read that right. According to a leaked pic of their internal sales literature, the little wireless company will offer an unsubsidized Moto X for only $300 bucks. It's important to note that this will probably not be an unlocked Moto X, thus it will only work on their network. When you factor in their aggressive monthly pricing model of $19-29 per month for unlimited talk, text and data, you start to see a very tempting offer.
Of course, it's important to take note that the company is so tiny it relies on WiFi networks and Sprint's 3G network for any data connections, so it may not be the best option if you work/travel in areas which do not have WiFi. It's also possible that this is a misprint and the final pricing will be different when it finally comes to retail. Incidentally, this will likely be sometime today or tomorrow if the above ad from Republic Wireless is accurate.
We will keep an eye on this and let you guys know. For folks on a budget, this might be worth investigating.
