Moto X due at top four carriers on August 23 — report


The top four U.S. carriers are expected to offer the Moto X (read our review!) on August 23, according to a recent Ad Age report. We’ve previously heard that Verizon would carry the new smartphone on this day, but it’s the first we’ve seen any hard dates for others.

The phone will be available on wireless carrier shelves August 23, according to people familiar with the situation. All four of the major carriers — AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon — will carry the phone at that time.


However, the customizable colors will be exclusive to AT&T at first. The other three carriers will carry Moto Xs in stock black and white until early November. At that point, the three other carriers will allow customers to choose from all the color options.

We’re glad to see that AT&T won’t have a stranglehold on the customization of the Moto X. Not that having both black and white versions is a terrible option, but we’d love to see this really great feature opened up to everyone.

    AT&T has been getting some pretty nice exclusive device launches and the customization just adds to that list. I’m stuck on Verizon but I guess if people want to be on the forefront of android then clearly AT&T is the way to go.

      Did you read the article? Particularly the large quoted section that says ALL the major carriers will have the device.

        Do you think I’m an idiot? I know it’s coming to all the carriers. Read the second half of the first sentence. I was referring to the initial exclusivity to MotoMaker. Additionally, AT&T has been getting quite a few exclusive device launches recently (S4 Active, Lumia 1020, HTC One Mini…). Hence, the first half of the first sentence.
