Motorola X announced by Sprint, costs $199.99 on contract
Motorola’s Moto X is now finally ready to be sold by Sprint. The third largest US mobile carrier announced that the handset would be available starting today, September 6.
Just like AT&T and Verizon, Sprint is asking $199.99 for the Moto X (on contract, of course). New customers who switch their phone number to Sprint can get the smartphone at just $99.99.
For the beginning, Moto Maker (which lets you customize the Moto X) won’t be available to Sprint users. However, the carrier says it will be accessible in the coming months.
“We expect customers to quickly become hooked on Moto X’s Touchless Control because of its ease and convenience for everyday tasks like locating the nearest gas station, ordering a pizza or searching the Web for sports updates,” said David Owens, Vice President, Product Development, Sprint.
The Moto X runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and features – among others – a 4.7 inch AMOLED HD display, LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC, Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing System, 10MP ClearPixel rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and a 2,200 mAh battery.
