If you’ve signed up for Moto X alerts, then you already know that the smartphone will be going for $299.99 in a 24-hour sale tomorrow. $299.99 will be the off-contract cost of the device which is normally priced at almost $100 higher.

The email notification telling us about the sale notes that the price of the 16GB off-contract iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy S5 are $649 and $649.99, respectively.

Droid Life also has the reduced prices for the 32GB capacity phone and its Developer Edition. These will be pegged at $324.99 each.

So we wouldn’t read too much into tomorrow’s deal.
