MotoMaker may be coming soon to Best Buy

MotoMaker may be coming soon to Best Buy
An inside source has told us that Motorola's MotoMaker software may soon be getting prime placement in Best Buy stores. According to the tip, internal Best Buy memos have confirmed that MotoMaker will be displayed in stores over the next couple weeks. Unfortunately, it is unclear if this will be part of the expansion of MotoMaker to new carriers or not.

As it was explained to us, there are MotoMaker displays that have already been shipping to Best Buy locations, and will be assembled and put on the floor over the next couple weeks. From there, customers will be able to buy the voucher for a Moto X and complete their purchase on the MotoMaker website at home. There are unconfirmed reports that there will be a tablet set up specifically to help customers finish their customization right then and there.

This could be a very good thing for Motorola's flagship, as Best Buy sees quite a bit more foot traffic than most carrier stores. We'll try digging around for more info, and let you know. We're especially interested to find out whether or not the vouchers at Best Buy will be AT&T only, or if this marks the start of MotoMaker shaking off the AT&T exclusivity.

If it is for other carriers, then I will be getting a new phone very soon.

Have you even tried the phone or is your assessment based only on the spec sheet? I've owned almost every flagship available and I stick with the Moto X. Why? Because it is BY FAR the best Android experience I've had. The added features are actually useful and not just bloat you'll never use. Most people that think the Moto X isn't good enough haven't actually used one. If you have used one and still don't like it, then your opinion is warranted.

No it wasn't. It was a troll comment. Troll comments = sarcastic remark.

I used it in the ATT store, the build quality is poor and the plastic is very cheap feeling. Samsung's plastic is a premium material compared to the Moto Xs... Which is pretty sad.

It's tough to do things completely differently from every other OEM out there, especially from scratch. Give them some credit for at least coming up with a good product.

Local best buy just got the setup, but no one knew if we could get one over verizon. But man, does that phone feel great in my hand!

The AT&T exclusivity will be the death of this phone. The customization is the best feature and most people can't use it.

Carries really must die soon, not only they apply their shi-tty logo designed by dogs with evident eye vision problems, they want also the 'exclusive' ... The phone looks just so good and I would buy it but ...

I'll blame those carriers who didn't push hard enough to get in with Moto maker if Moto pitched things their way...for what I have notice this past year at&t gets most exclusivity and that's most likely because other carriers don't pull hard enough for the OEMs to work with them...I'm looking at you vzw.

Yeah.... because Verizon isn't Motorola's largest customer with the Droid series of phones.
