Motorola’s second generation Moto X is certainly a thing of beauty and finally you can start customizing your Moto X today, in the US at least. The 5.2-inch 1080p screen toting device is available for pre-order through AT&T with a 2-year contract for just $99.99. If you opt for a special wood or leather back be sure to factor in an additional $25 to the contract price tag. If you opt for Next 18 you are looking at $21.96 a month and Next 12 will set you back $26.35 on the basic color offering, if you go with the leather or wood, then it goes up a little over a buck.
The Moto X is also available through the Moto Maker today as well. You have the same AT&T option with more customization of course. You can also pick up the Pure Edition version of the device. It works with AT&T and T-Mobile and starts off at a base of $499 with a $25 add-on charge for the special wood or leather backing.
AT&T spouts off a ship date of 9/23 while Motorola lists the ship date as 9/26. Not a huge variance, but one to consider if you ave little patience. It is interesting to note that the Motorola site mentions the unlocked version for $499 as being compatible with T-Mobile, but T-Mobile isn’t listed in the preferred carrier section. T-Mobile might not sell the device directly to customer, at least not right away. Now we just need to see what the deal is with Verizon and Sprint.
Anyone out there grabbing their credit card already? If you are, head over to the Moto Maker site and get to customizing or bounce to AT&T for your pre-order. .
