The T-Mobile Moto X is now on sale for $600 off-contract. It’s processor, though dual-core, is clocked faster than the Nexus 4’s, which already flies on stock Android. Smartphones just don’t need quad-cores yet. This phone will have significantly better real world performance than the majority of overly skinned android phones.
Ok.. I’d buy the phone if it was $400.. it’s sexy, it does what it does well. I won’t buy it for $600, just too much, for me.
Funny how people are assuming the Nexus 5 will still cost $299/$349. I think Google is done with that experiment. Now that it owns Motorola, Google has become an OEM, and they won’t undercut their own division with a superior phone at a better price.
