Motorola kicks-off the new year with the aggressive pricing model for its smartphones as the another affordable Moto G CDMA handsets are now selling for $100 off-contract exclusively for Verizon Wireless subscribers. However, the Moto Maker pricing for Moto X running on Android 4.4 KitKat is still at $100 on 2-years’ contract for AT&T, Verizon or Sprint.
Although the smartphone Google’s Motorola segment has been posting operating loss since its acquisition, its aggressive pricing could gain some traction in the consumer market.
