With all the news surrounding the Moto X yesterday, you’re probably ready for a break. Unfortunately, there’s another piece of information to deliver. This comes in regards to carrier availability, which was a bit of a foggy spot during yesterday’s announcement. We know that AT&T currently has an exclusive (can we stop with these already?) on customization and that Sprint is offering its unlimited guarantee with the phone. Verizon has confirmed that it will offer the phone and that it will later gain access to customization options. But what about T-Mobile?
Nobody really knew what was happening with T-Mobile. We received statement that the Moto X is compatible with T-Mobile’s network, but that was all. AllThingsD reached out to T-Mobile for comment and got this response:
The Moto X optimized for T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network will initially be available through Motorola’s channels. We do not plan to stock Moto X devices immediately in our stores, but are working closely with Motorola to make the Moto X a great experience for T-Mobile customers. Any news about distribution in our stores would come at a later date.Mike Sievert, Chief Marketing OfficerT-Mobile
It sounds like T-Mobile is a bit unsure of its plans for the Moto X. It’s even possible that Google is giving T-Mobile a hard time. Hopefully in the future, this issue will be resolved and the Moto X will become available to T-Mobile customers through the carrier. As for customization in general, we hope options come to every carrier as soon as possible. The whole exclusivity thing is entirely obnoxious.
Are you planning to buy a Moto X? How would you customize it?
