Motorola to Let People Test Customized Moto X Risk-Free
Motorola hopes a 30-day, risk-free trial will tempt people to check out the Moto X. The company is letting people customize their own Moto X via Moto Maker and test the phone for a month with no commitment. If they like the phone, they can keep it for $299 (after $50 rebate). The trial is for an unlocked device that would be used with a no-contract plan. People who dislike their custom-ordered phone will even be given a one-time do-over to design something different. Customers who test the Moto X and don't like it may ship it back free of charge. Motorola says there are no hidden fees. Motorola didn't say how long it will offer the trial.
