Motorola introduces a 64GB variant of the Moto X

Motorola really wants people to see that its flagship Moto X smartphone is worth your time and attention. While the device won’t win any spec wars, its $349/$399 (16GB/32GB) price off-contract should be enough to entice those looking for a good bargain.
Since the Moto X doesn’t come with a microSD slot, those requiring even more space have been left to look for other options; that is until now. Over the weekend, Motorola added a new 64GB model to the Moto X family with a price tag of $449.
For comparison, an off-contract 16GB Samsung Galaxy S5 will cost you $649 on AT&T, while the off-contract 32GB HTC One (M8) costs $669.
The off-contract Moto X is available for use on a number of U.S. carriers including AT&T, Republic Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless.

It was recently reported that Motorola will close its Moto X facility later this year due to poor sales. The facility at one time had 3,800 workers, but now just makes do with 700. Motorola’s new owner, Lenovo, will move production of the Moto X (and future Motorola smartphones) to China and other countries with low-cost labor.

Attractive off contract pricing. Hope we see more phones come down from the $600-$700 range they have been at for ages.

I've owned a lot of phones...flip phones, windows mobile (5, 6) phones, a blackberry or 2. Samsung Galaxy phones (including the Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III)...the Moto X is by far the best phone I've ever owned...quite simply due to the fact it's bloat free. The Moto apps actually do feel like a bonus and you can use republic wireless ($25/mo unlimited talk, text, web) with it. I purchased 2 of the 16 gb ones for $299...paid for my ETF through verizon in just a few months.
