Moto X Customizations Break Free from AT&T, Arriving At All Major U.S. Carriers
This meant that those buying a Moto X for use on AT&T's network had access to a litany of color and accent options, with the phone assembled in Fort Worth, Texas and shipped directly to the end-user. Now, however, Motorola Mobility is expanding that to all of the major U.S. carriers, including Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.
The Moto X still costs $100 on a 2-year contract for the 16GB model, with wooden backs expected soon for $50 a pop. The real question here is timing -- with Motorola waiting this long to extend the proverbial olive branch to the other carriers, will consumers even care? At this point, the Moto X is already a bit aged in terms of smartphone lifespans.
