This would perhaps be one of the best news read by people living in the developing countries who were too dying in anticipation of the Moto X. Motorola CEO Woodside has confirmed that an affordable Moto X is in the works, and will be launched somewhere down the road. Here's what Woodside exactly said:
"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."
Mind you, the cheaper Moto X might be the $299 unlocked device that we've read countless reports about already (so that means the analysts might be right after all). The cheaper version will of course go through some cost cutting, who knows what that might be. For one, Moto Maker won't be a part of the offering, but you already knew that. This "budget" Moto X might not end up as lucrative an option as the Lumia 520/521, but will be compelling enough to those on a budget. Oh, and the cheaper Moto X will hit the US prepaid market as well, in addition to developing countries.
