Moto 360 makes a comeback on November 12th, T-Mobile will also carry it
Motorola's Moto 360 – the first circular Android Wear timepiece, and probably the most anticipated one up until September – was very quickly sold-out when it first hit Verizon's stores. Its availability has been pretty limited ever since, though, that time is about to end, since not only did Verizon confirm that it will stock up on the smartwatch, come the 11th of November (the website now says Nov. 12th), but so did AT&T and, today – T-Mobile.

OK, T-Mo's announcement isn't “official” per se, as it comes in the form of a Twitter post, answering a fan's question on whether the carrier intends to sell the circular timepiece. However, that twitter post is written by Des Smith, T-Mobile's Senior Product Manager, so we'd wager it's believable info.

There are no details about available colors, nor price, though, we'd guess that the latter will still be around $250 for the leather band model. Now why did we say the "leather band model"? Well, for one, we know that Verizon will be carrying models with metal straps, for which it has been accepting pre-orders, and will cost $299. However, we've also spotted a couple of interesting renders, which were obviously not meant to be seen by the public yet, and were quickly taken down; one of the leaks showed a golden (or at least – gold-plated) Moto 360 body and was a blunder by Motorola themselves; the other one was Amazon's mishap – the retailer "accidentally" listed a Moto 360 in Champagne Gold, with a matching gold strap, and a silver Moto 360, with a brown ("cognac") leather strap.

So, it seems that, following September's interest, Motorola may be bringing more (and sexier) options for its round wearable. The question is – with watches like the round LG G Watch R and the semi-autonomous Samsung Gear S just behind the corner – could Moto be a bit late to reap the rewards of being the first round smartwatch on the market?

How has a Moto 360 been around for years? They only came out and were available to the public back in September of this year.
