The Moto X has only arrived on Australian shores in the last couple of weeks, at launch it’s mainly been available for purchase outright with no carriers announcing plans for the phone. But Dodo Mobile are bucking the trend and offering the device on two of their Post Paid Plans.
Backed by the Optus 4G network Dodo is offering the Moto X on two of their top tier plans – the Mobile Smart Mega and Smart Plus plans :
|Inclusions||Mobile Smart Plus||Mobile Smart Mega|
|Hardware Repayments||$15 per month||$7 per month|
|Total Cost per month||$75 per month||$82 per month|
|Min, Cost over 24 months||$1,800||$1,968|
|Included call value||$700||Unlimited|
|Dodo-2-Dodo included value||Unlimited||Unlimited|
|National MMS & SMS||Unlimited||Unlimited|
|Mobile data inclusive||1.5GB||2GB|
|Cost of excess data||$15 per GB||$15 per GB|
|Cost of SMS||N/A||N/A|
|Cost of 2 min call||$2.37||N/A|
|What is ‘included value’||National calls inc 13/1300/1800 and Voicemail||Unlimited national calls inc 13/1300/1800, Voicemail, National SMS and National MMS|
|What is excluded?||Data, Premium Calls/Text, International Calls/SMS/MMS/Video|
Head over to the Dodo Website and select the Black or White Moto X from the selector tool to check out the call rates, inclusions and terms and conditions for the above plans.
Dodo are also selling the Moto X outright without any plans attached for $525, meaning they’re pricing themselves just above JB Hi-Fi who are offering the Moto X for $499 and well below Telechoice who are offering it at $599.
Given the Moto X is now 8 months old and Motorola has already advised that they will be replacing the phone around August/September and rumours surrounding the Moto X+1 are strengthening, you may want to wait. But, it’s been heralded as a pretty awesome phone overseas and did get quite amazing reviews, these Dodo plans could help bring the Moto X to the Samsung-Apple dominated marketplace.
Do the Dodo plans tempt you to consider buying the Moto X through them directly? or have you brought the Moto X outright and if so, what are your favourite features of the device?
