Update: AT&T's Moto Maker exclusive will only be 3 days, then Verizon gets in
Last week, we heard some of the plans for the new Moto X (aka X+1) launch, and some of the leaked info was a bit disheartening. According to last week's info, AT&T was scheduled to have about 3 weeks to one month of exclusivity with Moto Maker, but most of that time was supposed to be pre-orders before the device hit store shelves.
Now, word has it that AT&T will only be getting 3 days exclusive time with the Moto Maker before Verizon gets to open it up to its customers. If it is true that AT&T and Motorola will be doing a Moto Maker deal on September 6th, that would mean Verizon customers will be able to do Moto Maker customizations on September 9th. All of those are still expected to be pre-orders, because the store release for the new Moto X is has been rumored at September 17th for Verizon and the 28th for AT&T, with Moto Maker orders taking up to 14 days to make it to you from Mexico.
If you are wondering about other carriers, word is still out on when or if Sprint and T-Mobile will get in on the Moto Maker. There have been rumors that there will be no customized T-Mobile Moto X handsets, but that seems unlikely given that T-Mobile is equivalent to unlocked. We'll keep you updated as we know more.
