    In 2013, the Droids were announced in late July and the original Moto X on August 1. The Droid could be bought in store in late August and the Moto X in early September with MotoMaker available in early November.

    For 2014, things were reversed with the Moto X announced and released in August and the Droid Turbo in October.

    I'm getting impatient, too. I think the issue here is more of their choice in timing between announcement date and release date. They had to do their full device announcement prior to the release date of their first (true flagship) devices. Meanwhile, the XPE was always known to be at the end of their logistical pipeline and, hence, would suffer a noticeable lag between announcement and launch date.

    So, yeah, the silence on the XPE isn't helping those of us anxious to get it but it was apparently always intended to be an "icing on the cake" kind of device and not their main focus (ie bread winner).

    Consider this an excellent opportunity to learn patience. And believe me--I'm struggling to get there myself.

    At July's global event, Motorola announced availability of the Moto G immediately, Moto X Play in August, and Moto X Style in September.

    And it's not yet September.

    Motorola's website says $399. They tweeted Sep 3 then pulled the tweet but other Android sites have followed up and confirmed that day.

    They have been far from silent. On Google+ many of the engineers have been posting photo samples, etc. They are very excited about this phone. You just haven't been listening in the right places.

    Six days and counting. It will be here before you know it.

    I've heard of Google+. LOL

    Any chance of some links? I'd love to see some samples. It's been difficult finding too many out there.

    Other Android sites didn't confirm it, they all just reblogged the same Sept 3rd tweet story, which looks like it definitely won't happen. I'm expecting another few weeks of wait.

    Verizon has probably got their grubby little paws in on this...they want the Droids released first so people will buy those and Verizon can make MORE MONEY!!!! They don't want more people buying the pure over the Droids, and most people will do just that because they don't follow these forums.

    Motorola got it right this year. They listened to the customer. Waterproofing, SD card, removable battery, 21 megapixel camera, unlocked, and fast updates straight from Motorola, and 400 price tag. =winner. Motorola x pure gets my money next week.

    I hope its next week. Never had a Moto before, but was won over with what they're doing. However, I need a new phone and don't want to be in release limbo when other options can be considered. If this release bleeds into Nexus release, surely Moto knows that it will lose customers.

    Absolutely no news at all from Motorola regarding a Moto X Pure Edition release date. Absolutely nothing. No prices, no preorder option. No nothing. Great job Motorola. Thanks for nothing.
    We didn't get release date news about Moto X Play until a week before the European launch (which was then delayed by a few days).

    I have heard the release date is the 28th September.

    We're now one month post announcement.
    I've concluded they either discovered a major flaw, or all ours were in the port explosion at Tianjin.

    How come my stupid Sammy keyboard can predict Tianjin but not my name after two years?

    It is annoying how they've announced the phone but have no release date. You don't really see other companies do this

    It is odd. The phone manufacturers HAVE to know the pre-sales buzz drives us to buy.
    Pre-sales "hands on reviews" are like free ads... rarely do you see a truly negative review. You have to dig through several reviews to get an honest picture of the phones.
    I suspect because the reviewers want to keep getting phones.

    So if they all blew up, there'd still be some available for review.
    So there must be a major design flaw.
    I doubt they are adding a fingerprint reader, usb-c or anything like that...
    I'll say 65% design flaw, 30% they blew up in port, 3% marketing psychology, 2% adding goodness to the phone.
