Mobicity selling Motorola Moto X, in stock now

Moto X

Motorola’s decision to not bring the new Moto X to Australia has not been popular, but for those of you who still want to get your hands on Motorola’s latest beast, Mobicity have advised that they are now stocking the 16 GB Moto X in either black or white for $869.95.

As the Moto X is only available in the US, the model being sold by Mobicity bears AT&T branding and is not compatible with any of the LTE networks used in Australia, so if you’re considering buying this phone, be aware of this limitation. It does support 850, 900 and 2100 MHz 3G networks so if you’re not bothered by the lack of LTE, it will work on all on 3G on all three carriers.

    that’s a bit expensive for that device

    Good news that it can now be bought, but $870 and no LTE is something I’ll be passing on. Easier to just wait until it either lands in Australia (Telstra is of course rumoured to be getting it), or one of Motorola’s other upcoming ‘X’ models debuts.

    If Mobicity sells even one at that price, it’d have to be a ‘more money than sense’ kinda transaction, surely.

      I’ve never had any issues with Mobicity. Always been fine for me.

        I think they were talking about the price being a ‘rip off’.

    Think I’ll pass on that one.

    I wouldn’t believe Mobicity for one second about having it on stock. I ordered a Nvidia Shield after seeing a similar article 2 weeks ago. My order still hasn’t left the warehouse.

    $869 for no LTE/4G and no customisation? You’d have to be insane to even consider this.

      And quite possibly drunk.

    They’re selling the LG G2 for $849.95 yet they went $869.95 for this?? Fuck off.

  • Anthonaut

    Bring on the Nexus 5!

  • AdamM

    Given the current price for a Nexus 4, which also has no LTE, you’d have to be insane to pay almost $900 for a Moto X, no?

  • wall

    Mobicity is know for having stupid and unreasonable pricing … fuckin ripp offs

  • J.Ack

    Um…

    Nexus 4?

    Faster processor. More ram (or equal).

    And like… over $500 cheaper??

    Total rip off. Not on the part of Motorola, but of the Australian re-sellers. As usual, we’re being taken for ride here. Dont waste our money. The Moto X is a great phone and my cousin in the USA loves his, but it’s not worth what the Australian resellers are trying to flog it for. Buy the NEXUS 4 while it’s cheap from PlayStore. Or even better, wait for the NEXUS 5 to come out this month. Don’t buy anything from Australian resellers. They’re just stealing your money. Buy on-line.
