Moto X Now On Sale to Republic Wireless Customers
Republic Wireless today announced that the Motorola Moto X is now available for sale. The device costs $299 and is being offered without a contract. In addition to the new handset, Republic Wireless is making new service plans available today. The first plan includes unlimited talk, text, and data on Wi-Fi only for $5 per month. The second includes unlimited talk and text on Wi-Fi and cellular, and unlimited data on Wi-Fi for $10 per month. The third includes unlimited talk, text and data on Wi-Fi, plus 3G cellular for $25 per month. The fourth includes unlimited talk, text and data on Wi-Fi, plus 4G cellular for $40 per month. Republic also still offers its original $19 plan only to the Motorola Defy XT. Republic Wireless, which is a Sprint MVNO, uses a combination of cellular data and Wi-Fi to pass VoIP-based calls through the internet rather than through traditional voice networks. The Moto X includes improved voice call quality over Wi-Fi, and makes significant improvements to call hand-offs between Wi-Fi and cellular networks.
Motorola claims the new MOTO X was made just for you. It is a curious phone that offers useful new software features and some compelling hardware options.
Sprint's version of the Moto X varies little from the AT&T and Verizon models, but still manages to stand out for one reason. Read Phone Scoop's full review here.
