Motorola’s recently unveiled next-generation Moto X smartphone is already available to order through other carriers such as AT&T, but Motorola today said the device won’t be available on Sprint. The news, which comes as a surprise considering the last-generation Moto X was available through the carrier, comes from a response to a customer on Motorola’s official Twitter account:
@griffithgg The new Moto X won’t be available on the Sprint network. Thanks for checking in.
There’s no word from either company on the reason behind the decision, but Verizon is expected to launch the device later this month while Motorola is already selling AT&T and T-Mobile compatible versions through its website. We’ll update with more if either company provides more information.
