Moto X US carrier availability, price rumors

Motorola are still keeping silent on their upcoming and highly anticipated Moto X smartphone, but we’re pleased to say that we have some new details to share with you. Strong reports have emerged this week suggesting that the Moto X is going to be very accessible in the US. More specifically, it could be a device that will release in 2013 towards the end of the year on all four major carriers in the US.

We haven’t heard too much about the device, since the massive leak on the potential customization features that will seemingly set the Moto X apart from other smartphones on the market in 2013. While it will be great to choose from a wide array of colorful shades for that element of uniqueness, many consumers are still waiting to see what the definitive hardware specs of the device will be – especially after the release of the runaway winner at the moment, the Samsung Galaxy S4.

This week, we have seen a new report from the Wall Street Journal, who claim that the Moto X will be offered on all four major carriers in the US – those being AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint. Some had initially feared that the device could end up as a Verizon exclusive after the company’s past partnership with the Droid line, but we’re pleased to say that this doesn’t look likely any more.

More carrier availability for a very impressive looking smartphone is always good, and further good news could come with the fact that pricing for the Moto X is thought to be in the same bracket as the top smartphones on the market today – those including the likes of the iPhone 5, HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4.

That means that we hopefully won’t see a price hike for those looking to buy on contract, which Motorola may have been tempted to do to coincide with all of the positive hype on the device. The sooner we hear concrete details on the Moto X specs though, the better as Motorola do not want to be leaving a reveal for much longer.

It’s clear that there is a lot of interest in the customizable Moto X, but how long are you willing to hold it out for Motorola to release official details at last? Would you buy the device on Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T or Verizon?
