    We will offer a GSM/LTE carrier-free (no SIM lock) and with an unlockable bootloader on Motomaker, and with all the Motomaker personalization options.

    not gsm. For Verizon???By LTE does that mean Verizon?

    Olivier Meirhaeghe12:33 PM
    No. Just for GSM/LTE carriers at this point.

    Probably an issue for the OP, who put "faster updates" in the thread title.

    My assumption was even a developer edition on VZW would get updates the same time as everyone else on VZW would since everything on VZW needs to pass VZW testing. I was curious if they had managed some kind of fast-track agreement with VZW, but it looks like they have not.

    Unlocked sounds like it's coming straight from Moto for the unlocked new moto x's. Everyone else still has to wait on their carriers. It's been a 6-8 week delay so far for VZW moto x owners, it's not the end of the world.

    Historically with the first gen Moto X:

    4.4: Verizon first (including VZW Dev Edition)
    4.4.2: AT&T first
    4.4.3: "T-Mobile" first (really, unlocked model and including GSM Dev Edition), Sprint was quick right after
    4.4.4: Verizon first
