Verizon Moto X to be available August 29, $199 on-contract

hello moto

Verizon has just taken to Twitter to announce the final word on availability of the standard non-Moto Maker version of Motorola Moto X for Big Red. According to Verizon, the Moto X will finally be available one week after the AT&T version was released, August 29.

For a close-enough-to-stock Android experience with a heaping helping of Moto-Googo-rola’s own special always on voice assistance features, you’re looking at a full $199, with a two year contract. This is, to reiterate, for the base white or black “woven” colorway. The customized Moto X for Verizon will still be available later this year. In other words, if you can wait, you may want to wait.

Now that the initial sticker shock of seeing a “mid-range” phone come in at $199 on-contract has worn off, nearly anyone who has used the Moto X will recommend it as one of the best Android phones money can buy at the moment. Going up against the super spec’d Galaxy S4 and HTC One was no easy task, but Motorola seems to be doing a fine job of it.

Just three more days until Verizon customers can finally pick the device up. If I was on Verizon, I know what I’d be getting.

    Wonder why its only online and in store weeks later? Wonder if they are going to have limited quantities or something

      I visited a local Verizon subsidiary (GoWireless authorized Verizon retailer) and the manager told me he would have it on the shelf on Thursday. The Wireless Zone nearby my home however told me they were ordering it in the next few days and would not have it on Thursday. They may base access to it in store by sales or something. Who knows.

    What a rip off this should be 99 dollars. Not 199.

      It’s a good thing you don’t set prices then, because you’d drive every company you would ever own into the ground. What a retard.

      You truly being new definition to the term “stupid niqqer.”
      I have a dream. I dream of a day when you are banned from every comment board.
      I have a dream. I dream of a day when you’re lynched, stabbed multiple times, and each stab wound is individually fucked with a salty dildo.
      I have a dream. I dream of a day when those people from Bronxville finally get fed up with you and take you for a one way trip upstate.

    Something that was bothering me: The AT&T version has “AT&T” uselessly in the top left, in the notification bar. Seen this in the early versions from reviewers and now in store on a display model. I can’t stand that.

    I was concerned the Verizon model would too. However, it doesn’t appear to have this. Can’t tell in the image above, but going the image on the tweet leans towards it not being there.

    AT&T needs to piss off.

      Att has been doing this for awhile and with how Verizon loves plastering their logo all over the phones I’m surprised they haven’t resorted to this yet.

  • LukeT32

    I wonder what the off contract price is? I really want to buy one outright to keep my unlimited data….

    • redraider133

      If its anything like at $579 is what att sells it for so hopefully no more than that, because I’m going to have to do the same and pay full price.

  • epicsnackus

    Does anyone have an opinion on which is the better phone? Moto X or Droid MAXX?

    • NotRelevant

      They’re effectively the same. Only differences are the customization and battery size. MAXX has better battery. X is customizable.

    Verizon is last again.
