Consumers who sign up for the standard two-year contract can pick up the Moto X for $199.99. A one-year contract bumps up the price to $449.99. Paying month-by-month kicks it up to the full retail price of $579.99. And under AT&T's Next installment plan, you'll have to cough up $27 a month for 20 months.
Equipped with a 4.7-inch 1,280x720 AMOLED display, the Moto X is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor. Storage rests at 16GB, though you can opt to increase that to 32GB. A 10-megapixel camera is on the rear, while a 2-megapixel version is in front.
