Deals for less-early adopters: Moto X, LG G2 drop to $99 on Amazon

Now is the time for not-quite-so-early adopters to strike if you're looking for a top-flight Android smartphone, namely the Moto X or LG G2.

Both phones were first unveiled in August to hype and positive reviews, with at least one reporter traversing a continent and back in a day to get his hands on the Moto X.

But the price of Motorola's first phone fully conceived as a Google company started to fall just a few weeks after its release, and now Amazon has taken the cost (with a new two-year contract or upgrade on AT&T or Verizon) all the way down to $99.

LG's G2 -- also rumored to be the inspiration for the upcoming Nexus 5 -- began shipping in September for $199 on contract and is now already available at a deep discount starting at $99.99 on Verizon and $149.99 on AT&T.

Both phones are good deals at these prices right now, but if you're not in a hurry, it seems likely that they could drop even further between now and the holidays.

And there's also the rumor that the Nexus 5 could be a bargain unlocked, and that new iPhone 5C isn't half-bad either. Choices, choices...the curse of living in a digital world of plenty.
