Republic Wireless made headlines back in November of last year after finally opening their wireless service to the public. Not your typical wireless provider, Republic Wireless offered customers unlimited talk, text, and data for only $20 a month on their “hybrid” calling service — a unique combination of WiFi calling, and Sprint towers — requiring specific handsets to take advantage of that. And therein lies the problem. Republic Wireless’ smartphone line up was always less than stellar. The best of the bunch being the Motorola DEFY XT, offered for $250 off-contract. Yeah, not exactly lust worthy.
Well, a leaked screenshot from their site is now showing a new Motorola device, one we never saw coming. That’s right, the Moto X might soon make its debut on Republic Wireless and although details are scarce, it appears Republic Wireless pulled some strings and will offer the X for only $300 off-contract. That’s nearly $300-off if you bought the same phone full price on AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon or wherever.
A Redditor mentions that the page accidentally went live before their official announcement tomorrow, but Republic Wireless has definitely been teasing a new device on their Facebook page. Seems the cat is out of the bag. Hopefully we’ll learn more tomorrow and see if Republic Wireless can still keep their rock bottom low $20 monthly service.
