The actual cost to produce a Moto X was released today.  Guesses?  

 

$100?

$150?

$175?

 

Nope... It costs Motorola and Google $221 to produce a Moto X.  That is why the cost for on-contract purchases are so high.  In order to recoup the cost, they need to sell a lot of them and at a decent price per each device.  Guess the price of manufacturing in America has it's downsides.

For a reference point for you fine TAC followers... iPhone 5 costs $201 to manufacture and the Galaxy S4 costs $230.  Think about that... its only $9 less to produce a Moto X and it has such inferior components.  I am not bashing the components, but you can't charge the price for it.  Period.
