Moto X Now Available at Verizon for $199 on Contract

Good news, Verizon Wireless subscribers, the wait is over if you've been itching to get your hands on Motorola's Moto X smartphone. Big Red two days ago confirmed in a Twitter post it would be offering the Moto X online beginning August 29th (today) and in stores in the coming weeks for $200 with a two-year service agreement, and true to its word, the smartphone device is now available to purchase.

This is a welcome site for VZW subscribers, considering their smartphone carrier isn't always the first to every smartphone party. Verizon was especially late in getting its hands on the HTC One and apparently was determined not to do the same with the Moto X.

The caveat to owning a Moto X through Verizon right at this moment is that it's only available in black and white. Part of the appeal of the American made device is that potential customers can go to Motorola's MotoMaker website and customize the Moto X's color scheme, but so far that option is only available to AT&T subscribers. Buyers are also limited to 16GB of internal storage through Verizon.

Other specifications include a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display, 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 10MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and a 2,200 mAh battery.
