Moto X Now Being Sold Off-Contract Directly From Motorola Online
Just days ahead of the Moto X’s launch on Verizon, Motorola has started selling the phone through its own Moto Maker website. You can buy the phone without a carrier contract through Moto Maker, and pricing starts at $579.
The advantage of using the Moto Maker site is that you can customize the device’s colors and engraving, but the only carrier that is supported is still AT&T.
Motorola plans to release a developer edition of the Moto X soon. The device will feature a special color combo, 32GB of storage, and an unlockable bootloader.
When the Moto X becomes available on Verizon come August 29th, you’ll only be able to buy the black and white models online. AT&T has exclusive rights to use Moto Maker during the launch phase of the phone. Sprint and T-Mobile have not yet announced availability.
