Moto X release on other carriers only ‘days’ away?

Motorola’s Punit Soni seems pleased with the initial launch of the Moto X on AT&T today, but he knows it’s only the first step. Posting to his Google+ page, Soni let it be known that the flagship handset will reach other carriers (namely T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon) “in days.” A developer edition will also see a launch in the coming days.

What these others won’t be able to boast, at least initially, is the ability to customize the look of the Moto X. The Moto Maker remains exclusive to AT&T, at least initially, leaving one of the phone’s most appealing characteristics off the board for those looking to be an early adopter on another network.

The Moto X will be priced at $199 with a contract across the map. Pricing and release details of the developer edition have not been announced at this time.

    It’s can’t be “$199 with a contract” on T-Mobile. Try again.

    • Anmol Ghotra

      Agreed. Also, T-mobile is done with contracts.

      • DavidB23

        Except for the contract to lease the phone from them instead of them subsidizing it.

        • Anmol Ghotra

          It’s not lease. You are buying the phone at retail rice in installments without paying interest.

    I went over to an AT&T store this morning by my work and played with the phone a little. I like it; it seems like a nice evolution of my Galaxy Nexus (on Verizon). Now I just need to wait until November? when the customizer is available for Verizon. =(

      I went to a local At&t store here in Houston and they claimed to not have any in the store at all. So I unfortunately didnt get to see it in person…as a Gnex owner on Verizon as well…I really like the look and added features over stock…and I am starting to not care about customizing it anymore with how sluggish my Gnex is getting…

        I wouldn’t be too surprised if they actually didn’t. After playing with the phone a little, I asked the guy about it and he said that they just put it out. It shows too since it didn’t look like it was set up yet (no network connection or AT&T demo thing) and I’m pretty sure I was the first person to actually launch the camera and some other setting screens since the “hints” appeared onscreen.

    I see the writers on phandroid are still trying to keep the hype going. Sorry but this device was really overhyped and lost my interest as soon as I heard the price

    • Daniel Rosseau

      You haven’t heard the most important price yet…….Google Play unlocked price.

      • CerealFTW

        True. But after seeing the LG g2 I doubt I’d end up getting the moto x haha I might as well wait for the nexus 5

    The only reason to buy this phone would be the customizing aspect. Stupid idea to gibe exclusivity to at&t. Will miss out on millions of sales because of it

    The only bad thing about this phone is the camera. If you think it has to have a quad core cpu and 1080 screen your just wasting your money on something that does. And if you really need that great of a camera on your phone for facebook and instagram then I feel sorry for you. People wouldnt complain if this came out 2 years ago so why complain now when its still performs on par if not better than an S4 or One.

      If you want to spend top dollar on a phone with a poor camera, last year’s specs and only customizable on AT&T then I feel sorry for you.
