Google has been making bank on its new Chromecast dongle thanks to its super low price of $35. While $35 isn’t a lot of money, it’s still nice to get things for free. Free things are especially nice when they’re bonuses for spending hundreds of dollars on other consumer technology.
Motorola has unveiled a new promotion for those who purchase an off-contract Moto X. For spending $399 on the new phone, Motorola will throw in a free Chromecast to make it feel like you’re actually getting a deal. After all, the $399 Motorola Moto X still costs more than the superior Nexus 5.
If you’ve not been following the phone wars lately, the Moto X is the new flagship device from Motorola. It features a 720p 4.7 inch display, dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 16GB of onboard storage, 2GB of RAM and a 10MP rear-facing camera. In short, it’s a mid-tier phone featuring year-old components.
So, what sets the Moto X apart from the others? Well, the Moto Maker program is the biggest distinguishing feature as it allows the consumer to customize the aesthetics of their device, including a bamboo wood back. It also has a number of software gimmicks that help it stand apart from the competition.
Alongside all of this, Motorola is also throwing in the free Chromecast until January 14. If you want a personalized phone with mid-tier specs, you can’t go wrong with the Moto X. The bundled Chromecast should make your decision even easier. You can check out the deal here.
