Interesting article,

Motorola's Pricing Mistake - Forbes

Means the mainstream is going to start shooting it down for price too. Might maybe adjust the pricing before it comes out if there's enough of this.

Does Google GOOG -0.07% understand how much the Motorola brand has eroded over the past two years? The recent Motorola models at AT&T T -0.03% and Sprint fared badly and left a nasty smear on the brand image. The Moto X would be a really intriguing model priced at $99 with contract and $399 without. That is the price point where Motorola should be rebuilding its brand image. Attempting to go directly against Samsung Galaxy S4 and the brand new iPhone that will ship shortly seems quixotic at best.
