Rogers is apparently receiving Moto X stock this weekend, a report says, although initial stock will be limited.
MobileSyrup has received an alleged internal Rogers document (screenshot below), which reveals that the carrier will get Moto X inventory starting today.
However, it’s not exactly clear whether Rogers will start selling the handset in the following days, or whether the document is simply meant to announce employees that stores are starting to receive stock. Here’s a paragraph that seems to suggest Rogers may actually start to sell the handset:
The Moto X has begun to ship to select Rogers locations in limited quantities. If an existing customer is unable to locate a device, please direct them to log into the Rogers Reservation System to reserve a device and it will be delivered to the Rogers location of their choosing when it’s available. New customers can register for updates at www.rogers.com/motox. They’ll receive an email as soon as devices become available nationwide.
We already know that Rogers will be the exclusive Moto X carrier in the country, and that the phone will retail for $189.99 with new two-year contracts or $549.99 outright.
We also known that the mobile operator will only have “basic” black and white models in stock, as MotoMaker customizations are only available from AT&T in the U.S. at this time.
However, Rogers is yet to publicly announce a launch date for the handset.
Speaking about the U.S., the AT&T Moto X will be launched on August 23, with other U.S. carriers rumored to launch it around the same date. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Rogers start selling the handset in the following week as well. But it will certainly be sort-of a surprise to see it become the first mobile operator in the world to launch the device, considering all that “made in America” marketing campaign around the Moto X.
