Just as we were told to expect, Verizon’s Motorola Moto X is now available for purchase in the carrier’s online store. Their version will run folks $200 after signing a new two-year contract, bringing folks a made-in-America 4.7-inch 720p device that houses Motorola’s X8 computing system, 2GB of RAM, a 10 megapixel RGBC camera sensor, Android 4.2.2 and more. The Moto X touts unique features such as touchless controls and active notifications, among others.
Of course, Verizon consumers will not have the fortunate opportunity to customize their Moto X through the Moto Maker, a feature that is currently exclusive to AT&T. With that, folks should know that this version of the Moto X will come in 16GB flavoring — nothing more, nothing less. Also, color options are predictably limited to black and white, for now.
To make the deal even sweeter, you can knock another $60 off the price of the Moto X using Verizon coupon codes FIFTYRMN and VERIZON30. Seems pretty reasonable to me. Unfortunately Verizon still doesn’t have these in-store yet, so if you need to check the Moto X out in person before pulling the trigger you’ll need to head to an AT&T store and give one of their models a run. Read our review, make your mind up, and head to Verizon’s website to place your order if you’re interested.
[Update]: The device has been taken down from Verizon’s site for some reason. The front-page banner still shows a link to a page where the Moto X is supposed to be, but the Moto X page itself is gone. Odd. We’ll be trying to figure out why.
