Moto X Developer Edition

Interested in picking up the Moto X from AT&T or Verizon, but not so thrilled about the idea of dealing with a locked bootloader? Have no fear, the Moto X Developer Edition is here!

The Moto X Developer Edition features an unlocked bootloader and 32GB internal storage. The handset also has a black front with white back, and features the words “Developer Edition” printed on the back.

The Developer handset comes in two configurations: one for Verizon’s network, and another for GSM networks (T-Mobile, AT&T). Both models will set you back $649.99 outright, though only the Verizon model is currently listed as ‘in stock’.

For Verizon customers, the Droid MAXX Developer Edition is also available, starting today. Like the Moto X, the MAXX features the same oreo-like design and the same price tag.

So are these developer handsets worth the money? Yes and no. With a GSM-compatible Google Play Edition expected in the not-too-distant future, T-Mobile and AT&T users may want to hold off. For Big Red customers, this may be the only way you’ll ever truly have the freedom to root and ROM as you please.

So how about it, anyone planning on picking up the Developer Edition of the Moto X or Droid MAXX?
