Motorola To Offer $150 Discount On Moto X Again on Wednesday and Monday

Motorola announced last week that the Google-owned company will offer a discount of $150 on Moto X (both developer and Moto Maker Editions), bringing the off-contract price of the handset down to $349. However, it seems things didn’t  turn the way Motorola expected as their website was swamped with prospective buyers and a majority of them were unable to order their device due to massive load on Cyber Monday.
