Motorola made headlines a few months ago with the official reveal of the Moto X, a smartphone that supported a new customization feature called Moto Maker. Unfortunately, the device had two big strikes against it. One was its $199 (with two year contract) price, which was pretty steep for a smartphone with hardware that wasn't top of the line. The other problem was that Moto Maker was only available for AT&T customers.
Today, Motorola announced that it was lowering the Moto X two year contract price down to $99 "for a limited time", a move that was predicted back in September. Not only that, but the Moto Mater feature is now available for all four major U.S. wireless carriers, including Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. Just a reminder: the Moto Maker allows users to customize the colors of the front and back and of the Moto X, along with accents, the amount of memory inside the phone and more before it is shipped to customers.
The Moto X will also be one of many Android phones that will be eligible for the 4.4 OS update, otherwise known as KitKat. However, we are still awaiting word on when the Moto Maker will support adding the promised wood backplate options.
