The Moto X is still one of the best handsets to come out this year, and it has now received $100 off for the developer edition. This offer also extends out to the T-Mobile standard edition.

We have already seen the contract offers dip down now that it’s more than a few months old, and now that has also gone to people looking to buy the phone outright too.

The developer edition comes in at around $50 more than the standard one. The normal T-Mobile handset is now $499 and the Dev’s one is $549. Those prices given are after the $100 deduction. It’s also the perfect time for Motorola to do this because the new Nexus 5 is ready to take the world by storm. The Nexus 5 hasn’t seen any price drops just yet, even though it is one of the best bits of value for money.

About the only sales the Moto X might be getting in the next month is those looking to save a buck. To try to help it along, though, the custom Moto Maker will be heading to many of the big U.S. Carriers before the end of this month. Either way it works out well for Google who are owners of both of the handsets and look to have all corners covered.

As a refresher, the Moto X has 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels. These pixels have a density of 316ppi. It also has a Motorola X8 chip that’s based on a Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC. It is a dual-core phone with a 1.7 GHz Krait CPU. What does all that mean? It’s a handset that sounds big, but because it doesn’t have physical buttons positioned underneath the screen, you’ll find that it more resembles a 4.3 inch screen similar to the iPhone. The reason is part of the screen is taken up by buttons because they are embedded in the display this time.

The Dev Edition and the Droid Maxx both came out on the 18th of September. This is about a month after the first release.
