    With the 3 new DROID phones, are there still expectations that Big Red will still get the Moto X? I suppose we will hear more on 1 AUG, but curious what others think.

    Are we sure that the Mini isn't the same thing as the Moto X (purely from a spec sheet and feature viewpoint, not design)? I know that the Moto X is suppose to be a mid level device, but there seem to be a lot of similarity between the two. In my opinion, which is worthless, the Droid Mini is Verizon's version of the Moto X. The price point, battery, etc seem to be on par with other rumors. The Mini and the X DEFNITELY seems redundant to me.

    For sure we will. While they all do seem redundant (for now), there is a separate variant for the Moto X.

    How can you even say that? We don't even know all the features of the X.
    Ry, TheLibertarian and JFH8 like this.

    Processor listed on FCC filings, Voice actions, Camera (operation) similar battery size listed on FCC filings. Moto X = 2200mAh, Droid Mini = 2000mAh.

    Like I said, I'm pulling that out of my rear, not trying to spread more dumbed down rumors.

    I certainly hope they still are getting the X. I like the look of the X better than the new Droids. I especially hope they get it if the X includes some X8 goodness.

    I see no reason why the MOTO X won't get the X8 set that the new DROIDs have. From a cost perspective, it makes sense to buy and assemble a lot of the same components.

    Wow - Verizon stores are going to be a zoo this fall. A slew of new Droids, the X, the GS4, the One - on top of a ton of older, mid-range, and/or freebie Android options. Don't get me wrong - I love choices just as much as the next guy/girl, but this is going to create a lot of tough decisions for Android consumers in the market.

    How so? We already know carriers are getting it (see Rogers). I fully expect AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon to carry it in their stores as well.

    I'm talking VZW highly doubt you'll see it in there stores. They'll b busy pushing there droid moto. If it is in there stores it'll be in a corner with no like light. And yeses it'll b in other carriers stores and have a better marketing push.

    Don't forget about Sprint. They very well may get one too.

    Based on the leaks - AT&T, Rogers, Sprint, & Verizon seem to be getting the MOTO X.

    Dude, you're telling me. I'm eligible for upgrade and can't decide between Ultra, S4, One, X, and even the G2. The companies keep on announcing press events...I should order the Ultra Employee Edition but I can't commit

    I am hoping to see the X still with the "designed by you" tag, I am hoping for a little more flexibility in hardware, though it may not be that way. I guess we will see in a week.
