How would you like an Android smartphone that’s ready for custom ROMs, will be updated to Lollipop and is easy on your wallet? Because that’s precisely what Amazon’s got for you.
The 32GB Motorola Moto X Developer Edition for Verizon is being sold on Amazon for just $199.99 without a contract. The phone is being sold by Mango Wireless but is being fulfilled by Amazon, so it’s eligible for Amazon Prime shipping. Unfortunately, the phone is currently back-ordered, with more stock expected to arrive by December 21.
While the Moto X is getting a bit long in the tooth and has been replaced by a newer model, it’s still a perfectly respectable Android smartphone that we know will be updated to Android 5.0. The fact that it’s a Developer Edition means that it’s got an easily-unlockable bootloader that’ll allow you to load up custom ROMs, too, if that’s your thing. Oh, and it’s got a pretty small footprint, making it a nice option for folks that aren’t into the phablet trend that’s been sweeping the wireless industry lately.
If this $199.99 Moto X sounds like something that you’d like to add to your gadget utility belt, you can snag it at the Amazon link below.
