Expanded Moto X availability just days away now

motorola-united-states

If you’re on the hunt for a Moto X and you’re an AT&T customer, congratulations. You can go grab a Moto X in black or white or get a Moto X card to use with Moto Maker from an AT&T store right this moment. As for everyone else, don’t worry; your time is right around the corner.

According to a Google+ post from Motorola’s VP of product management, Punit Soni, the AT&T release of the Moto X is just step one of the rollout, and we will see “dev editions, other carrier versions rolling out in days.” With what we already know about the way Motorola is going to handle the launch of different Moto X variants, this is still good and bad news.

Good, because we’re not looking at months or even weeks between wider availability releases of the phone itself. We’ve seen some extended gaps in availability from different carriers with the same device (we’re looking at you, Verizon). It doesn’t look like the Moto X will be spaced out like that. Bad, because even when the Moto X does launch on other carriers, and online as a developer edition device, you won’t be able to customize one. AT&T has a stranglehold on Moto Maker, and there’s still no official word on when the program will open up. With how bumpy the process for obtaining a customized Moto X is at the moment, we expect it to be a awhile.

Hopefully Motorola can get their ducks in a row. Fierce competition is right around the corner.

    I wish they would have made a special color for at rather than limit the customization until Nov or whenever others can finally use it

      This would have been much better. But apparently Motorola is getting something really good from AT&T for doing this. What else could possibly have pushed them to make this deal?

        “What else could possibly have pushed them to make this deal?”

        Other than greed and stupidity, nothing else confess to mind.

        Yeah, AT&T surely paid a hefty sum to get exclusivity. I think another reason behind it was to keep the initial demand for customization down, so they could make sure they could deliver as they promised.

    Thank goodness. I am not sure how long I can hold off my urge to get the Verizon HTC One, but I really wanted to compare side-by-side before deciding…

    (yeah, I know, I could just go to an AT&T store and compare them side-by-side…)

    on the motomaker there is already an option to design a device and save it for upcoming direct from Motorola ship so im saying motorola will allow moto maker on their direct unlocked or dev versions as well as AT&T

    I don’t get all the excitement over this phone. It is a mid range, carrier controlled phone with a colored backplate that you can bet, will be avalanche aftermarket at some point. Add to that, that contrary to advertising and lemming reviewers, the phone has an Actual Screen On battery life of 2 to 4 hours, Not 24! and you have just another android phone among hundreds of others that will never be upgraded in the future. No big deal here, move along.
