Australians rejoice! Seven months after launching in the United States and two months after launching in the UK, the Moto X is now available for purchase as an unlocked device. Unfortunately, Moto Maker isn’t coming along for the ride, nor is it expected to come soon.
The Moto X is available for AUD$549 outright. Since there’s no Moto Maker, your only choices are the Black or White models. According to Ausdroid, this Moto X works on Telstra, Optus and Vodafone.
So you have options to choose for which carrier you want your Moto X to be on. Motorola’s site still says the Moto X is “Coming soon” and there are no carrier or retailer announcements, but that should change shortly.
Now that the Moto X is in Australia, we can expect it to launch in more countries, which according to Motorola’s roadmap include India and Germany. Moto Maker will be expanding to the U.K., Germany and Mexico as well. And maybe Australia too, if Motorola updates their road map.
