Best Buy is already taking Moto X pre-orders for some versions of the phone, although the retailer is not saying when the orders will be shipped.
Currently, Best Buy only lists the 16GB Moto X version only, which can be purchased for $199.99 with new two-year contracts from either Verizon, AT&T or Sprint. The handset is available in either black and white – so customizations won’t be available for the Moto X in this case.
The three carriers have not started taking Moto X pre-orders yet, but they have all announced that the device will be available soon.
U.S. Cellular is the first carrier in the region to have started taking pre-orders for the handset, and the mobile operator already has a couple of promotions going on for the Moto X – $75 discount for new subscribers and free Motorola headsets for pre-orders (while supply lasts).
Notably, the T-Mobile Moto X is missing in action at this point, with the carrier having confirmed that the T-Mobile-compatible Moto X version will be initially available only directly from Motorola.
The full price for the Moto X is listed as $699.99 by Best Buy.
Are you buying a Moto X?

Is there really not going to be a 32gb Verizon version? I expect them to be ass holes and jack the price up, but to not even have it?
It’s because of an exclusivity deal with AT&T. It’s very surprising, but this time Verizon’s not really to blame.
I was really looking forward to this phone too but I just can’t pay that price when something like the One is 32gb for the same price, assuming they ever get it -_-
$699? You got to be fucking kidding me. To hell with that.
Best Buy always inflates the price for off-contract phones and never lowers them. The GS3 is still $699.99 for an “unactivated device” in their stores.
Yeah I see your point, but T-Mobile is currently listing HTC One and GS4 for $600, this should be lower than that…but sadly I can see it being sold for more than that.
Ahem… 700 bucks for this one? Why not get a nexus 4 for $349 instead? No thx!
If the Nex4 had ATT LTE bands, they would have sold even more. Heck, I have a GS3 and I’m still thinking of getting a Nex4 in the off chance the brand new LTE deployments by me MIGHT be 1700mhz AWS so I could use it.
If Google didn’t buy Motorola, would we even be talking about this phone? At this price why would anybody buy this phone?
Maybe and they wouldn’t.
No one is gonna buy this, no one.
Do not go crazy over Best Buys prices. They are always a lot higher then any where else. I guess it makes it seem like a better deal if they sell a $700 phone for $199. They would probably list the Nexus 4 for the same price or higher. Every where else lists the phone for $525 (or maybe it was $575) to start. I would be surprised to see this phone stay at this price for long.
700$? this is ridiculous.
Sincerely hope it fails and they learn a lesson aboutlocked bootloaders and prices.
The option to order a white front + mudshitbrown back + pink camera ring isnt worth the price 600$ price for a dualcore S4.
..and dont start the “innovative” bs, shake ur device to turn camera on like uve got Parkinson disease? how about a dedicated camera button? :/
