The Moto X has now gone on sale at Verizon and Best Buy, and it has already arrived at AT&T. Are you planning on getting the new customizable smartphone? Some providers may be providing more personalization options than others.
The new phone went on sale at Verizon and Best Buy today, in both places the price is set at $199 for a two year contract. I was under the impression that the Moto X would give its users the chance to customize it to their liking, whether it be color, wallpaper or accents. But with the phones provided in these plans, the choice of color is now limited to white and black. Perhaps more colors will come later on for these two providers / retailers. Also, some suspect that the phone's price could in fact drop and waiting even just a few weeks or a month is advised. That being said, the Moto X from Verizon and Best Buy doesn't skimp out on 4G LTE speed or Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
AT&T on the other hand has the phone available at retail price for $579, contract-free. In just over a week (8 days) you could have it tucked nicely into your pocket. This is no new news, since the phone did in fact arrive 2 days ago, but just in case you missed it, you can buy one for $199 (16GB) or $299 (32GB) with a contract. Off contract, AT&T provides you with the phone for either $579 (16GB) or $629 (32GB). Even as an AT&T customer, you're able to purchase the device directly from the Moto Maker site, where you can customize it with over 2000 options to personalize the back, front and accent colors, wallpapers and even engravings, though there might be a bit of the wait on the last option due to some manufacturing problems. Our own AndroidPIT community came up with some nice sounding ideas in the forum (I think some of them might be joking....I hope!)
If you are a Sprint, T-Mobile or other customer, you might have to wait a few more days or weeks to get your hands on the Moto X.
Are you planning on getting a Moto X? How would you design yours? Do you like these bright colors, or would you rather stick to the good ol' black or white models?
