Motorola tempts smartphone buyers with $50 Google Play gift card

If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, plenty of options abound. The recently announced HTC One, a new lineup from LG, and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 account for only a few of the many new devices worth checking out. But one company having a quiet beginning to the new year is hoping to lure customers their way with a special offer. Now through March 4th, Motorola will give anyone buying one of their handsets a $50 Google Play gift card.

The deal extends to such devices as the Droid RAZR family (including the RAZR M and RAZR MAXX HD), older devices like the Atrix 2 and Droid 4, as well as lower-end fare such as the Electrify and Defy XT. To receive their gift card, however, new owners must complete a mail-in form, meaning if you are in search of instant gratification, better to look elsewhere. But when the gift card does arrive, that’s plenty of dough to fill out a newly purchased smartphone with apps, games, music, books, and more.

    Motorola tempts me more with the X Phone than a $50 gift card. But I guess they wanna dispose old inventory.

    no. never again motorola. i buy Atrix 4G and after 9 months motorola canceled ICS

    • Eyad (formerly CTownOL)

      Well, the Atrix and G2X are what made Moto and LG so (in)famous afterall.

      Though, I believe LG did Eventually release an ICS kernel for the Optimus 2X for custom ROM makers to use.

    I would do this. I would get the Motorola Photon Q, but I have yet to read anything about Jellybean and I’m loving Jellybean on my E4GT. And developer support is low on the Photon Q and I don’t know anything about making ROMs.
