Some folks claim that smartphones are toys for adults. In a way they are right – in addition to serving for making calls and sending text, phones give you the possibility to surf the web, watch movies or read newspapers. Some models allow for much more creative and advanced entertainment. Those models are called developer editions and usually are pretty pricey. Today, however, unlocked Moto X 2013 Developer Edition is on sale on eBay for just $229.99 and contract free.
Deal on Unlocked Moto X 2013 Developer Edition
Even though the listing says “new” Moto X, when you look at the photo and go through product description, it becomes clear that it’s actually last year’s model. The “new” part most likely refers to the phone’s condition meaning “not used,” so keep this in mind when you hit the “buy” button.
The Motorola Moto X 2013 comes unlocked with HSDPA 850/900/1700/1900/2100 and LTE 700/1700/1900/2100 bands which means that it will be compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile and other GSM carriers. Under the hood the handset has a customized Qualcomm dual-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM and packs 32GB of internal memory. Other key features include a 4.7-inch 720p display, 10-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and 2200mAh battery.
The Moto X Developer Edition ships with Android 4.4 KitKat on board but it’s possible that it will get Android 5.0 Lollipop update in the future. Even if Motorola won’t roll out the latest version of the OS for the Moto X 2013, you may be able to enjoy it on your phone anyway. Since it’s a developer edition, you can always unlock the bootloader and flash all the ROMs. Voila, the newest iteration of Android is ready to rock.
At under $230 off contract, the Moto X Developer Edition is good value for the money, especially compared to how much the phone costs elsewhere. For example, Amazon is selling exactly the same version for $289. It may not be Motorola’s latest model, but who cares about when the phone was launched if it’s a great device by today’s standards and available at a pretty affordable price. Want one? Don’t wait too long, as apparently quantities are limited.
