The Moto X Is Probably Getting A Cheaper Little Brother

The long-fabled Moto X has finally arrived, and even with less than top of the line specs, we’re fans. The $US200 on-contract price has been a bit of sticking point for folks who were hankering for a real bargain offering. But don’t worry, there’s something on the way.

In an interview with CNET, Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside said that the Moto X was just the first in a line and strongly suggested there’s a cheaper follow-up coming.

The experience of devices you can get for less than $US200 is subpar right now. We want everyone to have access to affordable smartphones.

…Moto X is the brand that we are most focused on. And there is more to come. You will see additional products within months.

We still don’t know what the unsubsidised price of the Moto X will be when it eventually hits the Play Store, but that ~$US200 on-contract price suggests a pretty normal cost of about $US600. A fair chunk of change. Who knows what a budget Moto X might look like, and what it could do, but it’s good to know the pre-paid folks will have a brand new handset aimed squarely at them.
