    Default Re: Moto X:Playstore, Cost, Availability?

    Verizon Droid Event and Google Event are now behind us we have eight days for the Moto X event. Comparing the events so far for Google and Moto to give the X it's own event makes me wonder how much content could possibly have to discuss over a single device? Hopefully the device available day one or within the week?

    Well.. There's more we supposedly haven't seen already. And that Verizon/Motorola DROID event went rather quickly. And for Android, the breakfast with Sundar event focused on tablets.
    a.k.a. RyZR from HoFo
    Motorola Moto X (164.55.2.ghost_verizon.Verizon.en.US, KitKat 4.4.2)
    Motorola Moto G (173.44.20.falcon_cdma.Verizon.en.US, KitKat 4.4.2)
    Motorola DROID Bionic (98.72.22.XT865.Verizon.en.US, Jelly Bean 4.1.2)
    Google Nexus 7 2012 (KTU84P, KitKat 4.4.4)
    What other devices have I had? Here's my phone timeline.

    Moto X can talk to extent the process of customizing the phone but not much to take up event. They may talk about some accessories for the Moto X. There probably be a big focus on phones situational awareness with correlating apps and features to go along with the core function. Hopefully battery life efficiency is a big highlight and break through in terms what currently is available.

    The OS is what most interested in relationship to stock android. If has Moto UI would be more a part android rather than in top since they are working with and run by Google devs.

    2012 Nexus 7 removed play store on day one so I would expect the same for the Nexus 4 will be gone same day the Nexus is announced. Nexus 5 will be available within a weeks time from the play store.

    Assuming selling Moto X from the play store may be available very soon.

    The only decision I have to make in buying one of these is "White or Black?". I love having black phone but the white one is looking pretty darn nice.

    No questions asked, I'm going to get the 32GB if it's really coming.

    8pm-1am? That's late. I know they are going to go unconventional for this "press conference", but that's weird. Maybe an after party for when the press embargo is lifted. I just want to know when I can pre-order.

    No other press events in past had similar times. The event is a party and think point is to show the moto x is great device for connecting people.

    Here's to hoping those of us on Verizon can get it $299/349 if that is the price, and through the play store.

    No doubt about that - I wonder if the engraving is just on the back cover - allowing you to swap that out should you ever decide to sell/buy.

    This. It seems that the Play Store, for almost all device launches has been the worst place to buy a new Google product. Comparing to multiple other retailers, the Play Store charges tax and expedited shipping, takes longer to process orders, and has the most problems during a new device launch. Google gives me little incentive to buy new items from them when I can just as easily pick up my new device from Best Buy 4 days earlier than they're supposed to even start shipping, or from Amazon tax-free with overnight Saturday shipping for a small fee with my Prime account.

    My experience with Google store different from yours. Have bought 2 Nexus 4 phones there and had prompt service and shipment. No complaints. Sorry that hasn't been your experience.

    I think it depends on the customizing. Crazy colors and/or engraving? Certainly decreased value.

    Is anyone even remotely worried that the cost of this phone, that everyone is speculating about could be wildly off?

    Reason I ask is because the Droids that came out on Verizon are priced the way they are.

    This Moto X is essentially the same phone.

    We have established that the Moto X is going to be on Verizon.

    Does anybody who has EVER had any experience with Verizon at all think for one minute that they(Verizon) would allow essentially the same phone as their beloved DROIDs, on their network, at a price point that would.....

    A.) Completely undercut the price of their DROID branded phones, and...

    B.) Encourage use of their network WITHOUT contract

    These two things go COMPLETELY against everything evil Verizon has ever stood for.

    Disclaimer: I hope I'm COMPLETELY and utterly wrong. :-)
