Verizon adds Moto X with Moto Maker customizations to web store

Verizon Moto X Moto Maker

Been patiently waiting for Motorola’s Moto Maker customization tool to open up to more US carriers before picking up a Moto X? If you’re on Verizon, your wait may soon be over. Following rumors that Verizon will be added to Moto Maker on November 11, the big red carrier has added a “Moto X – Designed by You” to its online store. The images show a Moto X with a teal backside, Verizon branding and $99.99 price tag. Unfortunately, the device is also listed as being “temporarily out of stock,” so there’s no way to actually buy a unit quite yet.

Moto Maker allows consumers to customize a Moto X by selecting differently-colored front and back covers, volume buttons, a unique boot screen message and more. It’s been one of the most highly-touted features of the Moto X since Motorola took the wraps off of its new flagship earlier this year, but unfortunately for anyone not on AT&T, Moto Maker has only been available with Ma Bell’s version of the Moto X since then as well.

There haven’t been any official announcements made regarding a Moto Maker expansion quite yet, but the appearance of this custom Moto X on Verizon’s web store certainly seems to give credence to the rumors that more US wireless customers will soon get the chance to let their creativity loose on a Moto X of their very own.

    I think this is a great idea, but a little too late for some. With advertising, I feel like most consumers will think this phone just came out, so it could be a big seller over the holidays for moto with the right amount of advertising and pricing.

    Too late. I considered it when it was released, but waiting until after Nexus 5 was available was a mistake…both for Motorola and Verizon.

    Sure, Google gets their money either way; but Verizon lost a longtime customer for delaying this and refusing Nexus.

    Way too late, ordered the Nexus 5 in favor of Motocross

    Any news on the wood backs?

    I am all for the Moto X… maybe not top notch specs, but performance reviews seem to be saying that it performs well. It’s assembled in America (my main reason for wanting it)… if Americans don’t support products that support America, we can’t complain about a bad economy… its like complaining about politics but not voting.

    I have a Moto X and it just works. My previous phone was an HTC One and it had to many issues for me (build quality, battery drain was not consistent, camera turned low light images pink and it got very hot). Yes the X could have better specs, but why? It works as well as my previous HTC One as it is.
