The Motorola Moto X, the first made in the USA smartphone for a long time, has not been released yet for the masses although it has already been officially announced, but this has not stopped the folks over at Motorola from teasing the masses with a potential new accessory for it that they have called the Moto Skip. No, the Moto Skip is not something which is attached to your Moto X, allowing you to throw it across the surface of a lake to make it skip like a stone. Rather, the Moto Skip comes across as an NFC-based tag that has been specially designed in order to unlock your spanking new Moto X, now how about that? All it takes is just a single tap, and you’re good to go.
Of course, before that can happen, you will first need to perform the proper configuration, where pairing it up with the Moto X via NFC is the way to go. Once done, there is no need to input a passcode ever again in order to gain access to your handset. It is said to have been listed for $20 a pop, but the page concerning the Moto Skip was pulled down without notice – probably because it was not meant to be made public just yet. Sounds convenient? I don’t know, how hard is it to unlock your handset and enter a passcode? Not to mention the risk of your handset being accessed when someone steals your Moto Skip alongside the Moto X.
