I hope you spent this past weekend getting your creative side ready for a workout, because Motorola just announced that the Moto Maker customization tool is now available to all four major US carriers. After launching exclusively with the AT&T-flavored Moto X back at the end of August, Moto Maker is now opened up to customers on Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon as of today. Moto Maker gives consumers the ability to alter the Moto X’s back and front colors as well as the hue of its camera ring and volume buttons. Users can also include either 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, select a default wallpaper and add a unique boot screen message.
In addition to the expanded availability of Moto Maker, Motorola has slashed the price of the Moto X to $99.99 with a two-year contract for the 16GB model or $149.99 for the more capacious 32GB variant. Consumers who prefer to avoid signing a commitment can expect to pony up $499.99 or $549.99, depending on how much built-in storage they’d like.
The Moto X news doesn’t stop there! Motorola says that it plans to update the Moto X to Android 4.4 KitKat “soon,” which is a piece of news that ought to please both current Moto X owners as well as those thinking about pulling the trigger now that Moto Maker includes all four major US carriers. Taking into consideration the impending update as well as the expanded availability of Moto Maker and the aforementioned price cut, it looks like now might be as good a time as any to snag Motorola’s flagship handset. Do any of you plan on reaching for your wallet as soon as you’re done reading this post?
