Hands-On: MOTO X
I expected less
I fully expected this phone with all of its mid-range specs and Woodside's comments to be in the $0-99 on contract and $299-$349 outright. Google does a good job of delivering value for money with the Nexus line. Why they aren't following the same path with this phone is beyond me. I fully expect that when iSupply or one of the others does a teardown on the X phone, it will have a BOM price at least 20% less than an iPhone/SGS4/HTC M7. If that's the case, then I guess Google's mantra of not being evil doesn't apply to excess profit, greed or Motorola.
I can only hope that they do some sort of direct to consumer on the black/white models that costs less and allows the customer to buy the phone outright. then we can all complain about the cost of a customized x phone.
