Motorola cuts Moto X price to $399, Moto G heads to Best Buy for $100
Motorola is making a bigger push for sales of its flagship <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Moto X</a> in the United States, by giving it a permanent price cut. The change, coming after a number of similar discounts on the smartphone, comes at the same time as reports that its cheaper stablemate, the <a href=" on.400.processor/" rel='nofollow'>Moto G</a>, is being sold at Best Buy for $100 on Verizon with no contract. <br />
<br />
The Moto X will be priced at $399 from now on, according to the official Motorola <a href="" rel='nofollow'>blog</a>. Rick Osterloh, senior vice president of product management at Motorola, said that the company has heard from "people who want a new premium smartphone at a reasonable price without having to wait for a contract upgrade," with the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>server crashes</a> from its recent holiday flash sales apparently being a further sign of this. <br />

<br />
The Moto G <a href="" rel='nofollow'>originally reached</a> the US on December 2 as an unlocked GSM edition, with the 8GB and 16GB models priced at $179 and $199 respectively. The <em>LA Times</em> <a href=",0,5956991.story#axzz2p4gDFyWe" rel='nofollow'>reports</a> that Best Buy will be selling the Verizon model off-contract for $99.99, with Best Buy spokesperson Jonathan Sander advising "The phone is currently landing in stores and is available for sale as soon as it arrives." Sources <a href="" rel='nofollow'>of</a> <em>Droid-Life</em> have leaked an image claimed to be from an internal Best Buy memo, revealing that the Verizon Moto G has a "hard street date" of January 9th, with inventory in stores not to be sold until that date. <br />
