Motorola Bundles Off-Contract Moto X with Google Chromecast



Motorola has announced that they are bundling the off-contract flagship Moto X with a Google Chromecast device. The offer applies to online purchases from now until 14 January.

All you need to do is purchase the Moto X online (MotoMaker optional) and enter the promo code STREAM at checkout. Remember to add the Chromecast to your cast before checkout.

The 16GB Moto X costs US$399, while the 32GB model costs US$499. The Google Chromecast costs US$35.

The proudly-assembled-in-US Moto X is Motorola’s first flagship since the Google acquisition featuring a 4.7-inch AMOLED display, 4G LTE, 1.7Ghz dual-core Krait Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB RAM, 10MP Clear Pixel rear camera, running Android 4.2.2.

Its claim to frame is its ultimate customisability, offering thousands of colour and finishing combinations via the MotoMaker website.

There is no sign of the Moto X ever making it into the Malaysian market, although the mid-range Moto G will be officially launching on 16 January. I do hope that with the Google acquisition, Motorola improves its flaky presence in Malaysia. We want the good stuff, Moto.
