Republic Wireless to offer Moto X for $299 without contract
Republic Wireless has announced that it will launch the Moto X soon, offering the smartphone contract-free for $299.
Similar to Virgin Mobile, Republic Wireless is an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) that uses Sprint's network for its services. The carrier has announced that it will begin offering Motorola's flagship smartphone of 2013, the Moto X, for $299 contract-free.
The company's smartphones mainly use Wi-Fi for all of its services, but Republic Wireless also offers inexpensive plans that will allow you to use Sprint's network if your Moto X is not connected to Wi-Fi. It's a pretty good deal considering you're not signing a new 2-year contract and only have to shell out $299 for the Moto X.
The Sprint Moto X features a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED HD display and is powered by a custom dual-core 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with Motorola's X8 Computing System, paired with an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit (GPU). The smartphone ships with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and is expected to receive an update to Android 4.3 in the near future. The handset also includes 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM.
It is packing a 10-megapixel rear camera with the ability to record 1080p video, as well as a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. When it comes to connectivity, the Moto X includes a 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. Motorola has included a 2,200 mAh battery that offers excellent battery life and the smartphone will be available in a choice of woven black or woven white.
Republic Wireless has not announced an official release date for the Moto X, but has posted a sign-up page that will notify you when the Moto X becomes available for purchase. Motorola has been very aggressive in getting carrier partners to offer the smartphone it created with Google. Republic Wireless' Moto X price is pretty tempting considering that all major carriers are charging $199 with a new 2-year contract for the same handset. We'll keep you updated as to when the Moto X goes on sale.
