AT&T's Moto X is now in stock and ready to ship for $199 on a 2-year contract
It's sometimes the most absurd things that make us realize how fast time is flying by. It feels like just yesterday we were all over the Moto X and the novel features, both in terms of appearance and software, that it brought to the table. Today, 22 days later, the Moto X has finally finished the proverbial trek: from concept, through production, right into our hands.
AT&T's Moto X will set you back $199 on a two-year contract, compared to the rather steep $579.99 you'll have to dole out should you want to remain contract-free. The smartphone is also available on a 1-year contract ($449.99) and also under AT&T's Next program, which allows you to trade-in your smartphone every 12 months. Unfortunately for some, the Moto X and the Moto Maker (Motorola's customization suite lets you design your Moto X exactly like you want it) are currently only available to AT&T customers, but Verizon has indicated that this won't be the case forever.
So is the Moto X on your shopping list? If so, then make sure you take a look at our in-depth Moto X review and also consider skimming through our handy list of Moto X coverage, which should help you make a better-informed decision.

I hate when companies or in this case carriers get exclusivity on certain things.

yeah while it will never help Motorola sales if they want too compete with other companies just sad

Drop the price by $100 or more, then watch it conquer. Until that price point, it's not a big deal.
