    Unless allowing the Moto X on their network for a lower price was part of Googorola's deal with Verizon. Verizon gets complete control over the future of the Droid line and in return, Google gets to do as they please with their most important phone to date.

    I guess customizing will decrease its value on the used phones market later.
    I'm hoping the customization options force people to sell for less. After all, who wants a pink Moto X that says "Congrats on Graduating Phlebotomy School, Karen!"?

    If it knocks a little money off the price I'll be happy. I always put a case on it in the end.

    4 more days until the Moto X press event. I very interested in what more they could have talk about the phone that hasn't been leaked. I hope the software is more than what we are expecting. I am also curious if they will have Google Reps talking at the Moto X event. I am curious how much Google is involve and how much the Moto X will be a Google product.

    How come in the top picture the phone is black on the front and white in the back, while the phones in the lower pictures are completely white or completely black?

    Maybe it's just part of my wishful thinking but considering the $35 price tag of the Chromecast, maybe the $300-350 price range isn't as far fetched as we hope it's not.

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

    Looks like they can be mixed and matched. The one Eric Schmidt was using had a white back and black front and all of the "white" Nexus devices had a black front.

    Correct you can customize the front from the back and have a two tone phone. I am going for all one color.

    Maybe it was a black phone with a customizable back plate on hence the different color?

    I feel like this would have already been leaked, but then again, the Chromecast was held in secret and released right after being announced so who knows.

    I'm sure a lot of these have been controlled leaks by Motorola. The hype for this phone is pretty insane!

    I have an upgrade ready to go so I'm ready! If it's priced well enough, I might just get an iPhone 5 on contract, sell it, and use the money to buy this. We shall see!

    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. :-)

    I dropped this answer in a Reddit post about this topic, but I'll condense it a little bit. The short version is that Verizon would be interested in selling it because it would not cost them an equipment subsidy, so even if they don't get a contract out of it, that's better for them than taking a hit on a phone sold at a discount and waiting months to get it back. The iPhone has fatigued Verizon to the point where they're looking everywhere to recover the money they lose when they sell them at a subsidized cost. I could be wrong, but that's what I see.

    Also, perhaps VZW realizes there's a sizable number of us who have grandfathered-unlimited-data who would never consider getting an on-contract phone with VZW (because we would then lose unlimited), and are maybe considering leaving VZW, but suddenly having a good, solid, affordable, exciting, new phone choice would suddenly make staying more attractive? Maybe it's a stretch, but it's possible.

    Anybody anticipating supply problems and expecting it being sold out the first day (or within the first few hours) when it goes on sale Thursday or a later date? Did the Nexus 4 have pre-ordering prior to its release or did it just hit Google Play unannounced?

    It just hit the play store, but didn't start shipping for a few weeks.

    I wonder if today's release of Motorola Connect and Migrate indicate that the Moto X will be available starting tonight or this weekend? I guess the speculation will come to an end tonight though.

    It's better for Verizon if you don't have a contract because they charge you the same no matter what. You're better margin for them.
