The Moto X will be coming to all four major carriers in the US and US Cellular will carry the smartphone. We have not got a date yet, but every source is pointing to August 23.
Even though AT&T has the exclusive Moto Maker, allowing users to customise the Moto X whatever way they want, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular will offer this out after the exclusivity has ran out. Verizon makes a note of this on their new teaser page, saying the Moto Maker will be available at the end of the year.
For anyone not wanting to get tied down on AT&T, the Moto X may be a little while away still, unless white and black are the good enough. Motorola and AT&T have not said how long the carrier holds the exclusive Moto Maker, although Motorola has strongly hinted to different reviewers it will not be for long.
Verizon is likely to sell the Moto X alongside its Droid line up, with the partnership between the big red and Motorola running close. We hope to see Verizon offer the Moto X as an alternative to the Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5, the two phones commonly offered out if customers don’t want Droids.
The Moto X is still on the fence, most reviewers say it is a great device because of the new software features and the small problems with the screen resolution and dual-core processor are minor compared to the advantages on battery life and the almost stock Android OS.
There will be a Google Edition soon, Motorola and Google have both confirmed. The Moto X will not be stock though, it will keep the software and we can see this being a hit for people who don’t want a carrier involved, especially if it comes for $399.
