T-Mobile CEO John Legere has emerged as one of the of the most colorful characters in the mobile industry. His tweet this past weekend not only mentioned the upcoming September launch of the Motorola Moto X
for T-Mobile, he also got a shot in at his favorite pinata, AT&T. "Too bad AT&T doesn't let you upgrade when you want,
" led off the message. "Who's jumping to the MyMotoX when its available on T-Mobile in September?
In addition, T-Mobile just put up a support page for the Motorola Moto X, and while basically it is a placeholder, we need to look at the intention behind the move, not the content of the page. Earlier this month, T-Mobile CMO Mike Sievert said that the phone would not be available in T-Mobile stores right away
, but that T-Mobile customers will be able to buy the device directly from Motorola with support for the carrier's pipeline.
While the Motorola Moto X won't be available at T-Mobile stores right away, at least the Legere tweet and the support page give T-Mobile customers the idea that they will be able to buy their Moto X sometime next month. And with the inclusion of the phone on the carrier's JUMP! program, those who want the handset will be able to upgrade to the Moto X if they so choose to.
