Motorola’s Moto X smartphone has a 4.7 inch, 720p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB of RAM, and a starting price of $349 for a model with 16GB of storage.
The company also offers a 32GB model for $399… but up until now that’s been as much storage space as you can get.
That changes on June 8th, when Motorola launched a Moto X with 64GB for $449.
Motorola’s new 64GB model will be available for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Republic Wireless at launch. And if you don’t feel like spending $449 on a phone you’re not sure you’ll like, it’s part of a limited time “Try Then Buy” program.
You can pay a penny, have a Moto X sent to you, and try it out for 2 weeks. Don’t like it? You can return it. Want to keep the phone? Your credit card will be billed after 14 days. Motorola’s not kidding about the limited time deal though… the promotion runs from 11:00 PM Central time on Sunday, 6/8 through 11:00PM CT on Monday, 6/9. You get just one day to sign up.
Update: That didn’t last long. Motorola ran out of promo codes early Monday morning.
As for the 64GB model, it should be around for longer than one day. Since the Moto X doesn’t have a microSD card slot, the extra storage is a welcome addition. On the other hand, while the Moto X runs the latest version of Android and has some special features such as an optional always-listening mode for Google Now voice commands, the phone is quickly approaching its first birthday. It might not be long before Motorola unveils a successor with better features.
