Customers visiting store can buy Motomaker card for online Moto X ordering
The Moto X has gone on sale through AT&T. The Motorola flagship smartphone is available through both AT&T's website and through retail stores, with the site offering the plain black and white options, and customers buying a Moto X card in-store being able to customize their device's color scheme through the Motomaker website.
Using a 4.7-inch, 1280x720-resolution display, the Moto X uses a 1.7GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, a 10-megapixel rear camera with a 2-megapixel front-facing version, and the choice of either 16GB or 32GB storage capacities. Notifications can be read from the AMOLED active display, allowing for just the required portion of the screen to be illuminated in order to save power, while it is also touted to have improved voice-recognition features compared to other similar devices.
The 16GB model will cost $199 and the 32GB sells for $250 on a two-year contract, with the same pricing being applied to the default colors as well as the Motomaker. The website provides 18 different back colors, 2 front colors, and 7 different accent color choices for customization of the device, with other decoration options expected in the future.
The Moto X is expected to go on sale through Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile in the near future at a similar cost, though the Motomaker customization is currently only exclusive to AT&T.
