Moto X

Motorola has revealed on its website that the Moto X Developer Edition is coming soon, without revealing when this version of the handset will be launched.

According to the information posted by the company, the Developer Edition model will have 32GB of storage and will come with the words “Developer Edition” engraved on the back.

The company says the phone will have “of course” an unlockable bootloader, but reminds you in footnotes that unlocking the bootloader of the phone “voids all warranties and may cause serious harm to your device.”

Moto X Developer Edition

A price for the 32GB Moto X Developer Edition is not listed, but we expect it to sell for full price, or around $630, which is what carriers will charge for the off-contract 32GB Moto X model.

Also, it’s not clear at this time whether custom Developer Edition versions can be ordered – the image above shows the phone in standard white.

As we said before, the phone can be already ordered from AT&T, with MotoMaker customization support coming soon. Other U.S. carriers including Verizon, Sprint and U.S. Cellular will also have the device in stores soon.

    The phone is by no means bad, but I am not paying $630 for a phone with a couple cool features when I can get the same specs on the Nexus 4 for only $350 (except for the 32GB storage).

    lol, always funny that they tell you “this phone is for unlocking” and then doing so voids a warranty… how is that legit?

    • Michael McIntosh

      because you can relock it. it’s legalese to protect them from idiots who plan on buying a developer edition.

      • John O’Connor

        Are all those who want 32gb idiots though? It (the storage size) shouldn’t be a developer edition or AT&T exclusive only.

    More mid range shit release soon. No thanks. Overrrrr price!!!

  • companyemails

    At that price they can keep it. I’ll wait for and buy the Nexus 5 at half the cost.

  • Andreas Polycarpou

    Wiil it be available internationaly??

  • EvenInTheDarkestHour

    $630.00? On a Sunday, all I can say is “Holly overpriced handsets, Batman!”

  • LanceMiller

    Google made this phone look way over priced when it reduced the price of the Nexus 4 by $100. A quad core pure android with no bloatware for $249 (16gb) is just to good to pass up. Besides, why would I ever buy a phone that has the pricing model that the Moto X does & is already on update behind.
