    If the Moto X is sold from the playstore do you think we can customize our Moto X from the playstore?

    What is the price of Moto X unlocked rumored to be?

    Will it be available in US before international?

    Will the Playstore finally launch a product with out major hiccups in the ordering process?

    Non of that information has been made available yet. It's expected to hit all major US carriers. There have been leaks of supposed back covers in different colors, not sure how this could be handled in terms of getting a custom look or choices. Also, if I'm not mistaken, Play Store has only sold Nexus devices. Being that this is not a Nexus, it's unlikely that it will be sold through Google Play.

    True the Playstore has only sold Google Products but I figure the Moto X would be one of them.

    Since the play store sells the Google edition gs4 and one Id bet they sell the moto x.

    I'll bet the only way to get it engraved will be purchasing it from Google Play.

    What is the price of Moto X unlocked rumored to be?

    I've heard we're looking at staying close to the $299 price point for the unlocked versions.

    Will it be available in US before international?

    That seems like a reasonable assumption, because that's how Google and Motorola both have worked in the past. I hope it's available world wide on day one, though

    Will the Playstore finally launch a product with out major hiccups in the ordering process?

    No. LOL.

    I thought Motorola online was where you do all customizing for the Moto X and the playstore just another option to purchase the device only?

    Can a CDMA phone ever be considered unlocked? Wouldn't it stink for us Verizon customers if it was $299 direct from Google for gsm unlocked OR $199 with a 2 year contract ($599 off contract) from VZW for their version.

    Guess we'll have to wait and see how motogoogle handles selling a phpne on all of the major carriers.

    A CDMA phone can be considered unlocked if it has gsm, and the gsm portion is unlocked. Most of Verizon's current 4GLTE phones are factory sim unlocked, some older ones were unlocked by update.

    The CDMA unlock doesn't mean much as CDMA carriers can require the esn to be in the database as with sprint and Verizon

    I hope with ALL my heart that it will be available worldwide at launch and I think it will be sold through Google Play.
    If it cost 299$, I'll buy one.

    Any chance we will be able to buy a Verizon version on Google Play for $299, or whatever the actual unlocked price is?? (I know, probably a Pipe Dream, but have to ask)

    Thanks.

    Hm. I think you're right. If so, yeah, that would suck. At first, I thought since it going to be available for all carriers and sell on the Play Store, I thought I'd be able to buy it for Verizon from there. But I guess that's wishful thinking. Back when the Galaxy Nexus was being sold, Play didn't sell the VZW version, right? So I guess we should not expect the VZW Moto X to either.

    But if say $300 is the MSRP, shouldn't VZW sell it for $300 off contract (and maybe $50-100 on-contract)? If so, that would work just as well.

    Today's rumor (from Moto X Off Contract Pricing Sounds Amazing If True, 16GB and 32GB Model's | GizmoFusion )

    The rumors for this device just keep on leaking, with another today that I think will not only surprise but make some of you very happy. We had two separate sources email us over the weekend with information regarding the pricing details of the soon to be official Moto X from Motorola and Google. Take it with a grain of salt as usual, but we think these numbers line up with what Google and Moto are trying to do with this phone. They want to get it out there, make it the cheapest off contract phone available, with specs that are absolutely good enough for the majority of smartphone buyers looking to upgrade.

    Our sources are both saying the 16GB version will retail off contract for $299 with the 32GB version being either $349 or $399. Carriers will of course sell the phone directly, and on-contract pricing should be aggressive. They feel a $99/$150 price point is very likely, for 16GB and 32GB respectively. Some carriers might only carry one model, some might carry both, we are just not sure yet.

    If these numbers remain true it could very well shake up the mobile phone industry. Its very likely at these prices they could be selling these phones at just about near cost, even slightly below cost, but that remains to be seen and we will just have to wait another week or so to find out officially.
    (Emphasis added).

    I would be COMPLETELY fine with buying the phone from Verizon, for $299-399. Ecstatic even.

    My big worry is it won't be $299-399 off contract from Verizon. There was a big disparity in price between the "Play Store" GN and the Verizon GN. $349 vs. $599.

    Here's to hoping I'm wrong. :-)

    I would imagine that Nexus 4 sales will fall off a cliff if these prices turn out to be accurate. I couldn't see myself spending $299 for last year's Nexus 4 if I could get a 16GB Moto X for the same price.

    Think the Moto X is appealing, but hardware wise think the Nexus 4 more than in game. Has quad core processor, 16 gigs of storage and 2 gigs of Ram. Don't see
    Moto X exceeding any of those from what I've read. And we still don't know if the X will have straight Android and be guaranteed fast updates. Those are big pluses in Nexus 4 corner already. So fall off cliff? Not until the Nexus 5 unless, of course, the Moto X is the new Nexus 5. If so, it's underwhelming.

    Possibly, but it wouldn't be long anyways with the Nexus 5 expected 2-3 months after the Moto X anyways.

    Yep, the Nexus 4 will probably phase out as soon as the Nexus 5 is released on the play store. When the Nexus 7.2 comes out,however long for nexus 7 to be remove from playstore is how long Nexus 4 has when the 5 comes out.

    If and that's a big if, I can get a Moto X for 349.99 off contract. I'll be on that like white on rice. I have a Gnex that is still capable but I need 32GB of storage for all my stuff. As it is with 16GB the capacity is hurting performance at the moment. Now i'm getting very interested in this.

    Yes, 32 gigs of storage would spur my interest. That would be a strong attraction. Timeliness of updates is yet another important consideration.

    I was kind of factoring that in. Even 2-3 months out, I wouldn't mind buying a Nexus 4 if I needed it, but everything would change for me if the Moto X was priced the same as the Moto X. All this time I expected the Moto X to at least be $450, so a sub $400 phone would be tempting. I guess I don't get too caught up in specs. It is hard for me to grasp the idea that the Moto X will be mid-range phone. I would simply be too interested in the optimization of software that everybody keeps alluding to.

    Great point. I never thought of that but it makes sense.

    Me too if I didn't have a Nexus 4.

    Agreed on the updates to, with this being very close to stock. I think that we could see OTA updates very quickly from Googlerolla. What want to see though is how much of the new in the X will show up in KLP? That will be a big indicator as to how quickly those updates come by. Either way it has to be better than Sammy and HTC.
