Motorola is opening pre-orders today for the 2nd gen Moto X on their site today, and AT&T is following suit. What’s cool about AT&T’s offering is that they are offering your chance to grab the phone in either Black Resin, Black Leather, or Bamboo. Last year’s Moto X was very limited at the carrier level in that you could only get a plain white or black version. So it’s nice to see added options. Just remember, you won’t be able to further customize these bad boys unless you hit up Moto Maker.
Pricing is the expected $99 on contract, but AT&T is grabbing $526.99 for off contract customers. We were expecting $499. Now we did expect to see a premium for leather and wood options, but they are charging the same price for the resin option. Seems a little strange, but we never know what carriers are thinking these days.
