Exclusive: Motorola Moto X to be released "somewhat simultaneously" with new DROIDs
Verizon just announced the new lineup of Motorola DROIDs that will be coming to the carrier, including the DROID MAXX, DROID Ultra, and DROID Mini. Our source close to Motorola has been pretty well spot on for us throughout this Moto X saga, and their new information is that the Moto X will be released "somewhat simultaneously" with the new DROIDs.
This is the same source who gave us early insight into the expected specs (which have been confirmed), release window, and color options for the Moto X, as well as the one that tipped us about the DROIDs in the pipeline in the first place, so they have proven themselves reliable. This time around, our source is saying that the off-contract price will be very cheap, which seems to confirm the $299 rumor we heard earlier today. And, our source is saying that the Moto X will be released "somewhat simultaneously" with the new DROIDs, meaning a few days at most between the releases.
Since Verizon has said the new DROID lineup will launch on August 20th, that gives us a pretty good idea of when to expect the Moto X as well. This confirms what we've seen as far as the August 23rd release date for the Moto X on Verizon.
We'll be getting the official word next Thursday, but the picture just keeps getting clearer as we get closer to the announcement.
