Moto X

While AT&T users were lucky enough to get their hands on the Moto X on the 23rd of August, folks on other networks have been left waiting a bit longer. The good news is that Verizon’s version of the Moto X has now launched as well, right on schedule.

At the moment, the only way to land yourself a Moto X through Big Red is by ordering online, as the phone is still slated for in-store arrival in “the coming weeks”. It’s also worth noting that if you are stoked about customizing your device with the MotoMaker, you’re going to have to wait until the AT&T exclusivity wears off, which is rumored to happen in November.

If the lack of customization and in-store availability doesn’t put you off, the 16GB model of the Moto X can be purchased online for $199.99 with contract in your choice of woven black or woven white. The handset can also be purchased off-contract for $599.99.

For those looking to save some cash on the outright price, Verizon’s “VERIZON30” coupon code will allegedly work with the Moto X, bringing the price down by 30%.

So should you pick up the Moto X or not?

If raw power is what drives your purchases, you might be better served by another device. If you are looking for cool ‘extras’ like Touchless Control and Active Display, then by all means, the Moto X could fit the bill.

    Damn. I was planning to hit a VZ store today to check it out. I am likely not sticking with VZ, but still unsure and have until december to decide.

    Awaiting for its arrival on T-Mobile so that I may finally jump ship from AT&T. Sure, I lose the customization ability, but I’d prefer a “better” service than pretty colors.

    Does it receive updates directly from Motorola? :S

    What about Sprint? It’s on their website.
