    I'm waiting on details (price, trade-in offers) to decide if I'm getting a Z Force, waiting on the new Nexus devices, or maybe if I can get a killer deal on a Turbo2. I was hoping they'd make it available today, but I bet there would've been leaks from local stores if that were the case.

    I thought pricing was supposed to be announced today?

    Mashable posted the prices earlier but took down their post. I think it was $26/m and $30/m ($624 and $720).

    Must be an NDA active.

    Is there no hype? None of the major websites are covering the event.

    The event was basically a press refresher plus review unit pickup.

    So the event doesn't reveal when the Moto Z will be released to the public?

    Another pathetic fail by Moto and Verizon, with this non announcement announcement. If the rumored prices are true, that's another big fail. Expect big discounts on Black Friday then.

    Apparently this so called "event" was not what we were expecting after the last "event."

    So essentially the same price as the galaxy s7 before you buy any mods at all. You'll exceed $800 for the force and battery pack.

    I'm hitting an existential crisis with my cell phone addiction. Is a $800+ flagship *that much* better than last year's flagship used at half that price or less? Or a brand new 5x for $250? Or a used Note 4 for $225? Or any of the many new $300-500 phones out?

    I can currently get the Turbo2 for $200 with 2-year contract (I don't have any intention to leave Verizon anyway, so that doesn't bother me.) I'm waiting to see if they drop that further once the Z is out. Only disappointment I'd have is no fingerprint scanner, and pretty unlikely to become daydream certified (not sure how much the certification will matter, though, and it's not clear the Z will ever be certified either.)

    I can't justify getting a subsidized phone because I would lose a $25 a month per device discount.

    Yes....there are so many good used or new prior models out there that will do the job nicely if you don't need the latest and greatest.

    Wait, who told you this? Nothing has been leaked. I'm not sure how some low level call center rep would know.

    I wonder if the phone trade in allowance will only apply to new accounts.

    Something is happening today on the Verizon site. Previously you could search for "moto mods", click on a mod and see the product page with "coming soon" listed. Now clicking on a moto mod from the search results brings up a 404 page.

    I'm still in disbelief from the rumored prices. I can't see how you can make the argument to buy this over a GS7, which has a better camera and screen for the same price or why you would buy this over the plethora of less expensive phones like the Nexus 6P.

    Price isn't everything. Some people might just consider this a better phone than the others.

    Verizon site is updated.

    $26/m z, $30/m force ($624 / $720). All of the rumored mod prices were correct.

    $90 for a wireless charging power pack
    $80 for a regular power pack
    $59 for a kate spade style mod (literally just a piece of plastic in kate spade colors)
    $300 projector
    $80 speaker

    Web deal: buy 1 mod at full price get any additional mods at 40% off

    Note: there are no basic/cheap "style" mods on Verizon's website. The cheapest mod is the Kate Spade style mod.

    Personally, I appreciate some of the Moto features, like the enhanced voice commands, the gesture controls, etc. The mods could turn out to be pretty cool (or they might flop and be a bit silly, but it shouldn't diminish the phone on its own if they do). I also really strongly dislike the modifications Samsung makes to Android. I was really tempted by the 6P, especially in a recent sale where I could've gotten it through Amazon for under $400, but the BestBuy preorder deal let me get the Z Force for $99, so I'm sold.
