New leak confirms August 23rd for Verizon Moto X, puts DROID Mini release later
When we first saw the leaked roadmap for Verizon, it put the Motorola Moto X release on August 23rd. Then, there was a bit of skepticism because of a report claiming that the Moto X had begun shipping to carrier stores on July 29th. Now, we're seeing a new leak that is confirming the August 23rd release date.

Our source at Motorola had told us that the news of the Moto X shipping to carriers was accurate, but reiterated that the only release info know was that the Moto X would release "somewhat simultaneously" with the new DROID handsets. Given that Verizon had announced an August 20th release for the new DROIDs, that seemed to confirm the original August 23rd release date for the X. 

This new leak confirms both the August 23rd release date for the Moto X as well as the August 20th release date for the Motorola DROID MAXX and DROID Ultra. The one hitch is that it seems the Motorola DROID Mini may have been delayed until August 29th.

Of course, all questions about the Moto X will be answered tomorrow at 3PM EST, so no need for the rumor mill to get too crazy on this one.

Its a good alternative for the Nexus 4 for those who don't want to spend $600+ on a phone..

He was probably referring to the idea of smelling a phone. But yes I do agree with you, although with the second Nexus phone I'm sure a lot would rather wait. I have a feeling this year's model will also get another price hike like the Nexus 7. Nothing major, but if it's going to be cutting edge with a 1080p display, snappy 800 etc. I think 300 might be pushing it. I'm guessing it'll start at 350 this time.

But will it support all carriers unlike the N4? that is one of the strong points of the Sammy GS models and will be of the moto X also.

Verizon is always late to the party so im guessing the moto x will be available before for other carriers.

Because Verizon always delay s**t to customize (ruin) their phones (note 2) with their junk and logos. Also, they don't want to take from their droid branded phones. Same thing they did for the DNA and delayed the Note 2.

Hey they have to make money on them to pay Disney(Lucas Arts) for the use of the word Droid.

I hope the Moto X come with 2 options 32GB & 64GB. No SD card slot, i guess because Google never offer it before.

Can someone tell me your the price of nexus 4 in your country? off contract please.
Here in Cambodia, the nexus 4 cost US$460.00/nit which is more expensive than GS3 to offer around US$410 with 16GB
