As the launch of the Motorola X Phone nears, rumors and speculation are heating up more quickly than ever. According to sources at The Wall Street Journal, Google could spend $500 million on Marketing and Advertising for the X Phone. Their sources are expecting that this $500 million budget will be mainly for use in US markets, but could seen in select international markets.
The WSJ also reports that the new Motorola X Phone will be available on all four major US carriers: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The device is expected to come in several different colors allowing user customization, as well as being made at a US Texas facility.
Price wise, the X Phone is rumored to cost $199 on a 2-Year contract, with a $599 full retail price. This price does sound a little hefty considering that Google is trying to get this to the hands of everyone-but that’s just the price you pay these days for a ‘high-end’ smartphone.
