Earlier in the year, perhaps facing increased competition in the mid-range handset market, Motorola announced that it would offer a $100 rebate to those who purchased the Motorola RAZR M through Telstra. This ran from February to 31 March, and I can only imagine it was a somewhat popular promotion.
Because Motorola have told Ausdroid that they’ll be doing this again! From today until 1 July 2013 (or until stocks last) Motorola will be again offering a $100 rebate to those purchasing the Telstra version of the Motorola RAZR M — either outright, or on a plan.
Claiming the rebate is simple. Motorola have set up a simple cashback website, and as long as you claim within ten days of purchase, you’ll receive your rebate (as long as you’re in the first 3000 buyers, of course). Full terms and conditions of the rebate are on Motorola’s site.
Given the time of the year, and the length of time since the RAZR M landed on market in October 2012, it almost sounds like this is a ‘run out’ type promotion, designed to move as many RAZR M units as can be before newer, higher powered competitors hit the market.
The way we see it, it still runs a relatively recent version of Android (4.1.2), it’s lightning fast, and when we reviewed the RAZR M, we quite enjoyed it. This could be enough to push a few people down the RAZR M path.
What do you think? Will you be looking for a RAZR M now, or suggesting one to family, given this new rebate announcement?
