Despite already being completely unveiled, reviewed, and advertised by Motorola for the last week now, we still don’t know when you’ll be able to buy a Moto X. Original rumors and behind closed doors conversations pointed towards a late August, early September release, but we’ve yet to hear anything official. According to a report out of Ad Age, that time frame is right on the money.
In a blog post on the magazine’s website, the Moto X has been given a solid August 23 release date on all four major carriers in the US — AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. August 23 should sound familiar at this point; that date has already been rumored thanks to an internal Verizon inventory leak. Of special note concerning the four carriers, we’ve heard that T-Mobile won’t carry a Moto X variant in stores, so we’re not sure exactly what T-Mobile getting the device on the 23 means. As for the other carriers, it will be business as usual.
Also detailed by Ad Age is when other Moto X variants will get access to custom colors with Moto Maker. By “early November,” custom Moto X units should be available to everyone. AT&T must have scored a 90 day exclusive. Fortunately, it’ll be a customized, multi-colored Christmas for everyone. Unfortunately, the next iPhone (possibly two) should be released by then, and the next Nexus detailed as well. Is Moto Maker enough to make you hold out for the Moto X?
