The rumors for this device just keep on leaking, with another today that I think will not only surprise but make some of you very happy.  We had two separate sources email us over the weekend with information regarding the pricing details of the soon to be official Moto X from Motorola and Google.  Take it with a grain of salt as usual, but we think these numbers line up with what Google and Moto are trying to do with this phone.  They want to get it out there, make it the cheapest off contract phone available, with spec’s that are absolutely good enough for the majority of smartphone buyers looking to upgrade.

Our sources are both saying the 16GB version will retail off contract for $299 with the 32GB version being either $349 or $399.  Carriers will of course sell the phone directly, and on-contract pricing should be aggressive.  They feel a $99/$150 price point is very likely, for 16GB and 32GB respectively.  Some carriers might only carry one model, some might carry both, we are just not sure yet.

If these numbers remain true it could very well shake up the mobile phone industry.  It’s very likely at these prices they could be selling these phones at just about near cost, even slightly below cost, but that remains to be seen and we will just have to wait another week or so to find out officially.

Thanks Andrew and Sam..

    If this is true, sign me up for 4. My wife and I plus 2 more. The phones are also “made” in USA! Extra bonus

      That means it’s probably going to break at least 12 times during the warranty.

    God please let this be true!

    Is this really that amazing of a price? Same price as Nexus 4 with similar specs (even lower in some regards). We knew this wasn’t going to be a $650 phone from the mid-range specs. I really hope and doubt they aren’t going to charge and extra $100 for 16 gb of memory.

      Yes. Most non-contract price phones are in the $500 range… so this is a BIG thing.
