Moto X With MotoMaker Now Available for $350 Off Contract (Updated)

Update:  It’s pretty obvious that Motorola’s site isn’t currently able to handle the amount of traffic that has flooded upon it for this deal. Should the site come back up and the deal be in place, we’ll update this post. Hang with us!

Update 2 (6:49AM):  Motorola’s support account on Twitter had this to say – “Lots of traffic; promo not started yet. Wait to order until you see promo in cart. Watch http://twitter.com/motorola  for updates!” and “As posted above, it has not started yet. We need to get the site up first. Wait until you see the promo in your cart to order.”

Update 3 (6:58AM):  And now the official Motorola account has posted this – “Our website is down due to traffic & we’re working quickly to restore it. Watch here for updates & for when our Cyber Monday deal starts.”

Update 4 (8:17AM):  New word in from Motorola – “We’re currently restoring online services. Some may have site-access, but Cyber Monday deal prices won’t begin until all systems are a go.”

Update 5 (8:44AM):  Moto X Developer Edition (GSM) and (CDMA) models are now available for $399! [GSM Link] [CDMA Link]

Update 6 (11:38AM):  Shortly after going live, the Developer Editions both sold out. And then now they have come back. We’re not exactly sure even Motorola knows what’s going on at this point. Feel free to try the links in Update 5, just to make sure. If you were waiting for MotoMaker orders, we think they may still be coming. Try to sit tight through this 6-hour wait.

Update 7 (11:55AM):  Yep, the Developer Editions are back again, according to official word from Motorola. And Motomaker is still apparently on the way, if you can believe that. Here are the direct DE links – [GSM Link] [CDMA Link]

Update 8 (6:20PM):  Well, Motorola has issued a new statement with a potential new schedule. If they are not up and running by 6:30PM Pacific, they are moving the deal to Wednesday, December 4, with a second sale happening on Monday, December 9.

Update 9 (11:00PM):  Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has apologized for today’s debacle. They will indeed open up two more sale days – December 4 (this Wednesday) and December 9 (next Monday). Details here.

Motorola’s discount on the full retail price of the Moto X – what may be the best Cyber Monday deal of them all – is now live (at least it’s supposed to be, but their site is struggling at the moment). Announced last week, we were told to expect to see a $150 discount from off-contract pricing on Moto X models through MotoMaker and Developer Editions. For those keeping track of current Moto X pricing, that puts custom made MotoMaker models with 16GB at just $349 without a contract. Should you go 32GB of storage, you’ll be paying $399.  (more…)

Cyber Monday Deal: Nexus 7 (2013) in 16GB or 32GB From eBay for $169 or $229 With Free Shipping

While you attempt to wait patiently for Motorola to get their sh*t together for today’s Moto X Cyber Monday deal, think about adding to your tech collection with this eBay deal on the 2013 Nexus 7 in either 16GB or 32GB. As long as supplies last, you can grab the 16GB model for $169 or the 32GB model for $229. That would be a $60 or $40 discount, respectively. Oh, you can get free shipping as well with an estimated arrival time of “on or before December 6″ for the 16GB version.

The 16GB Nexus 7 units are manufacturer refurbished; 32GB units are brand new.

Cyber Monday Deal: Amazon Slashes $50 Off of Kindle Fire HDX and Kindle Fire HD, Now Just $179 and $119

Weren’t interested in (or able to grab) the Moto X through early Cyber Monday madness? How about Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HDX at a similarly ridiculously low price of $179 with 16GB of storage? This is Amazon’s new high-end Kindle Fire, one that houses a high-resolution 7-inch display (1920×1200), 2.2GHz quad-core processor, new version of Fire OS, lengthy 11 hour battery life, and Mayday Button for live, video support whenever you need it at no additional cost. Its typical price is $229, so you are looking at a $50 discount for the day.

If the ultra-high end HDX isn’t exactly what you were looking for, then consider their other Kindle Fire HD, which can be had today-only for $119 with 16GB of storage. Again, that’s a $50 discount from its normal $169 price point. With the regular Fire HD, you are looking at a 7-inch display (1280×800), dual-core processor, 10 hour battery life, and access to Amazon’s services like Prime.
