Moto X 64GB option arrives, as in-home trial offer runs out of steam


Nine months into the phone’s lifespan, and Motorola continues to throw a lot of support behind the Moto X. Despite sales of the phone never quite reaching the level Motorola hoped for (a failure that necessitates the company closing-up the Texas facility where the Moto X has thus far been assembled for US sales), Motorola continues to deliver additional options for the already highly customizable smartphone, as well as comes up with new promotions to capture the public’s interest. This week, Motorola has a little of each ready for us, as that try-before-you-by promo we heard about on Friday goes live, and a new storage option for the handsets arrives.

That try-it-for-a-penny deal is indeed live, and it sounds even better than we imagined, even covering return shipping. The problem, as is all too often the case with special Moto X offers, is availability: Motorola warned us that this one would only be good “while quantities last,” and in case you can’t see where we’re going here, they’re already gone. We suppose the offer could return at some point (and Motorola may wish to see what kind of a response it gets once the two week trial period is up), but for now, that boat has already sailed.

While that deal may have passed, another new Moto X option has arrived, with sales beginning for the 64GB Moto X. This is an option we’ve been expecting for the past couple weeks, and it’s finally gone official. The 64GB Moto X goes for about $450 off-contract, $50 more than the 32GB $400 model. On-contract, however, it’s not quite as great a deal, costing $100 more than the 32GB option. And while the 64GB Moto X is available for the majority of carriers, Verizon isn’t among them.
