Motorola Moto X drops at Sprint on Friday, September 6th, priced at $199.99 on contract
The Motorola Moto X will be available from Sprint starting tomorrow, September 6th, for $199.99 with a signed two-year contract. And while buyers right now can choose from the standardized model in Woven White or Woven Black, down the road Sprint customers will be allowed to use the Moto Maker web site. The site allows Moto X buyers to customize some aspects of the phone including the color of the front, back and trim of the model. The site has more than 2000 choices for buyers to select from.
The Motorola Moto X is powered by Android 4.2.2 and taking a picture is just two wrist twists away. Touchless Control means that a response to an inquiry is requires you to preface each verbal inquiry by saying "OK Google". And for Sprint customers, those buying the phone will be able to guarantee that their current line will continue to offer unlimited talk, text and data for as long as they own that number.

If you're a Sprint customer who has been hankering for the Motorola Moto X, by tomorrow at this time, you could be walking around with the phone in your hand, constantly saying "OK Google" as bystanders give you strange looks.

$199 for a midrange phone is ridiculous.

It's beyond me that you're still allowed to post on this website... I know... You're just doing it because everyone here calls the iPhone midrange and everyone will call the next iPhone midrange, and somehow it's more satisfying to attack the Moto X than fruitlessly defend your Apple product. Fruitlessly... heh, I get it.

Can't believe people still sign 2 year contracts with carriers and pay close to $100 (or more) for cell phone service. Then sign a 2 year for a phone that's already dated? Yikes!

Motorola and Sprint is an AWFUL PAIR. You would never get the proper support. Countless headphone jack malfunctions from almost every Motorola phone and a lack of updates on Sprints side of Motorola phones.

Sprint is by fare the worst us carrier... No first picks with phones and not great coverage. Poor customers

I do not understand Moto's X pricing. I know it's a good phone and just as fast and functional as the GS4, One, and G2, but pricing must be commensurate with capacity. I will NOT spend $200 on contract for a 16 GB fixed phone. $150 or less.
