Who doesn't love a great deal? We know we do here at MobileBurn, which is why we were delighted to see Motorola's latest offering. The company is willing to give its brand new Moto E away gratis, completely free. Of course, nothing in this world can be had for nothing, so there is a caveat. Namely, you have to purchase the Moto X flagship through the Moto Maker website before you can get the Moto E.Still, considering the Moto X is a stellar smartphone that you may well have been considering anyway, getting a free handset with it only sweetens the deal. Sure, the Moto E is entry level (it?s worth $119.99), but it is among the best devices at the price point and is certainly not a bad smartphone by any means. Unfortunately, it seems the deal is only open to consumers in the United States, and the offer will run until the close of business on March 24th.
The new Moto E gets a quad-core Qualcomm processor, a Snapdragon 200 on the 3Gdevice and a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 on the LTE variant, both chips are clocked at 1.2GHz. 1GB of RAM is on board, as is a slightly larger 4.5-inch screen with 540 x 960 resolution. Elsewhere there is a 5 megapixel rear snapper with 720p video capture, a VGA front lens, 8GB of native storage, a microSD card slot, and a 2390 mAh juicer. The Moto E can be customized with what Motorola calls Grip Shells or Motorola Bands. These new products "feature a unique ridged pattern which provides an even better grip."-
The 2014 Moto X is a vast improvement on the previous model with a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD screen, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel camera and a close as makes no difference stock version of Android 5.0 Lollipop. It is already available in bamboo, leather, and of course plastic, but with Moto Maker you can make the Moto X distinctly yours.
