Motorola’s next effort at the low end of the market, the Moto E is now available at JB Hi-Fi for $189. At launch, the only retailer showing the Moto E was the Good Guys, but it’s now showing on the JB Hi-Fi website.
Browsing the JB Hi-Fi website it appears that the Moto X, which launched in Australia in April and is approaching its first birthday, has received a price cut of nearly $100 since it launched here – now selling for $398 on the web, but try talking to a sales rep to see what they can do.
Given that there have been rumours of the follow-up to the Moto X, which is expected to be called the Moto X+1, you may wish to wait. But, if you’re in the market for a budget device with decent specs, then the Moto X may be for you. Daniel loved the Moto X when he reviewed it and one of the factors holding back the recommendation was price, but that seems to be less an issue with this price drop.
Is a Moto X at $398 enough to tempt you? Or is the super-cheap Moto E more your style?
