The Moto X promos continue!

Motorola announced today that on Monday, June 9, anyone interested in a Moto X will be able to customize their very own no-contract unit and try it out for two weeks. The price for this at-home trial? Just $0.01. You’ll want to be quick if you’re planning on taking advantage of the offer, though, as Motorola says that it’ll only go on while its supplies last.

While Motorola hasn’t announced hard sales numbers for the Moto X, it seems like the device isn’t selling quite as well as Motorola had hoped. The Moto X remains one of the better Android handsets around, though, despite the fact that it’s nearing its first birthday. It’s got swift OS and app updates, hardware customizability, low no-contract price and a compact size. If you haven’t yet taken advantage of any of the numerous Moto X sales that Motorola has held in the past, you may want to take advantage of this dirt cheap at home trial.

How many of you are rocking the Moto X as your daily driver? If you are, are you still happy with the device?

UPDATE: Motorola has pinged us to share more details on how the “Try Then Buy” program works. Starting at 11:00 p.m. CT on June 8, consumers will be able to sign up for a special code on Motorola’s website. They can then create a no-contract Moto X using Moto Maker.

After the 14-day trial period, the customer can then keep the phone and have their credit card charged or return it and have Motorola pay the return shipping costs. If they do decide to keep the phone, Motorola will give them a coupon code good for 30 percent off an accessory.

Motorola also announced that it’s now selling 64GB versions of the AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Republic Wireless Moto X models. These versions cost $100 more than their 16GB counterparts, meaning that a no-contract model will set buyers back $449.99.
