Hardware features on the Moto X include a 4.7-inch 720p display, 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System), 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32 GB of storage,  and a 2,200 mAh battery.

Show Press Release

It’s been quite a journey, but we’re finally here. Starting today, August 23, your Moto X is available for purchase at all AT&T stores.

Moto X responds to your voice so you can check the weather, get directions, or do just about anything without lifting a finger. Two quick twists of your wrist and Moto X’s camera is ready to go, so you won’t miss a shot. With the best of Google services baked right in, Moto X helps you get everyday tasks done quickly and easily. And every Moto X sold in the USA is assembled right here in the USA.

Moto X is also the first smartphone designed by you. You can go into an AT&T store and choose from woven black or woven white models to take home right away, or select the customization option and create a phone that’s uniquely yours. Then just log onto Moto Maker to design your phone and complete your order online.

Very soon, you’ll be able to order Moto X directly online through Moto Maker. To see what’s possible, Moto Maker is open today for everyone to explore options and get inspiration.

Customizing your Moto X is simple and fun — there are thousands of potential combinations to choose from. We’ll build it to order in Fort Worth, Texas, and ship it right to you. And for a limited time, we’ll be including Motorola Skip for free in all orders of the customized Moto X. Skip is a thin, thumb-sized clip that pairs with your Moto X and unlocks it with a simple tap.

We’ll be working hard to get your customized Moto X to you as quickly as possible. We expect that because of high demand, initial shipping times may vary. But we will get that down to 4 days or less as soon as we possibly can. We’ll also be adding digital printing in the future, so you can include a personal message on the back of your Moto X.

Please check with our partner AT&T for pricing and store locations. Moto X will be available through other carrier partners very soon.

    So the customizable moto x can’t be customized yet..sweet..

  • Arthur

    This whole customizable promise was one big scam. It’s not available at launch and it’s only available thru one carrier to make matters worse.

  • chris

    lol yeah, this is a huge wreck


    To be such a huge and successful company, Google is always screwing up their phone launches.

      I think a botched launch of the Moto X is on Motorola, not Google. Yes, they are owned by Google, but they really do not have much experience in hardware and retail. They are a software and services company. give them time and they’ll learn how to do it right. The Moto X may be the first big project for Motorola under the Google umbrella, but it’ll hardly be their biggest.

      If people are impressed with the Moto X now, just imagine what Moto and Google will be able to pull together for next year’s flagship device.

        Oh yes lets wait another year for yet another hyped up phone with many rumors (yes I know they are only rumors) only to be let down again and again. It is actually getting tiresome and frustrating. This phone was supposed to be much cheaper off contract. This phone was supposed to have tons of options for customization. It was supposed to have a MUCH better battery life. And it was supposed to be released on ALL carriers. Had the rumors been remotely correct, I would have been one of the first on the line to purchase. Yes Motorola is Google and lack of experience in retail is no excuse. Retail is a no brainer. You make an ample supply product the people want (demand), and then you put a reasonable price on it and advertise it. You place it in as many locations as possible. The customers will come and spend their hard earned money. The end result is that everyone is happy. Sorry Nick, but I have to agree with all of the posters on this page that you downvoted, this is very disappointing.
