Motorola’s Moto X, like all Android phones, is at the mercy of the carriers. Many phones have been locked down by the higher powers. The current trend is to release special devices with unlocked bootloaders, and Motorola took the chance to reveal the developer edition of the Moto X.
The device will have a unique look to it (outside of Moto Maker), with a black front and a white back, along with the words “DEVELOPER EDITION” engraved at the bottom in a particularly attractive way. It’ll also come with 32GB of memory and the all-important unlockable bootloader, for all your hacking needs. Unfortunately, Motorola hasn’t announced the price. Hopefully it won’t be too extravagant.
T-Mobile also has some Moto X news; the company has launched a support page for the device. The phone itself has not yet launched on the carrier, so seeing the support page go live is a good sign that the device will launch very soon.
John Legere, T-Mobile CEO, teased the Moto X on his Twitter page. He stated that the device will be available on T-Mobile in September, though it’s unknown whether it’ll be sold with plans or directly from Motorola. Hopefully they’ll start selling them just like every other carrier. We’re excited to see what Motorola has to offer beyond what they’ve already released.
