AT&T has released the Moto X on their carrier service for $199.99 on a two year contract. Currently, the Moto Maker tool is unavailable but will be available in some kiosks at AT&T stores starting today.

The Moto X is currently only available at AT&T, with the three other major carriers not releasing the smartphone, yet. We did hear Verizon Wireless would release the Moto X today or in a few days. T-Mobile and Sprint seem to not be that bothered about the smartphone and we may see it come in about a week.

With AT&T hogging the Moto Maker for the first few months, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile just have the two stock colour options, black and white. This means the vast amount of buyers will go to AT&T, unless they always stick with another carrier or just want black/white.

Off contract, the Moto X will cost $579.99, a little cheaper than the LG G2, Galaxy S4 and HTC One but still a high-end price. We heard recently Google and Motorola would be partnering up to make the new Nexus with the same design idea as the Moto X.

For its mediocre specs range, the Moto X provides the best battery life and the only thing comparable would be the Motorola Droid MAXX and Droid Ultra, both Motorola smartphones. Motorola’s new software and applications approach is tinted with Google knowledge, with Touchless Control, Moto Assist, Active Display and Quick Capture four brilliant programs for users.
