Moto X will not be a DROID smartphone with Verizon exclusivity

Unsurprisingly, the Moto X will not be a DROID smartphone and will not come exclusively to Verizon Wireless. Previous Motorola flagships have only been available through Verizon and the DROID brand has become synonymous with Verizon.

This shows the new direction Motorola is moving in and we doubt the DROID line will be as big as it once was, even though Motorola may continue it. Even though the new Google smartwatch and Glass project will be made in X Labs Hardware, Motorola will have more of a core part to play in the expansion of Google as a hardware and mobile company.

The Moto X will launch on all US carriers, according to multiple sources. By all we mean the four popular carriers, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile. We are unsure if the Moto X will come onto other carriers like Virgin Mobile and US Cellular, it may be a possibility.

While we still aren’t sure what the Moto X will bring, CEO of Motorola Dennis Woodside has said it is less focused on the internal speeds and more on the sensors, battery life and understanding the phone has with the user. Motorola will offer ways to design the phone, but we are not sure if this will be a simple material redesign or a full smartphone redesign.
