While the Moto X officially launched last week on AT&T and today on Verizon Wireless, there are still many questions left unanswered in regards to Moto X availability remaining carriers like Sprint and T-Mobile. When it comes to T-Mobile, we may have a little more info on where customers will be able to purchase the device and oddly enough, it appears it wont be through retail stores, or direct from Motorola.
TmoNews managed to grab this internal screenshot from T-Mobile, showing that the X might only be available through the Google Play Store where it mentions the device will only be “sold by Google”. This actually conflicts with previous statements from both Motorola and T-Mobile who said, shortly after the device’s unveiling, that the T-Mobile Moto X would be available for purchase directly though Motorola’s site.
The way this sounds, it appears as if the device will only be available off-contract, as the Play Store currently doesn’t allow users to purchase devices at a subsidized rate (or on monthly payments). Of course, none of this information has been confirmed and until we hear something a little more official, exactly when and where you’ll be able to purchase T-Mobile’s Moto X is still up in the air at this point. We’ll keep our ears peeled and let you know when we hear more.
