Motorola Moto X dummies arrive at Cricket
Motorola Moto X dummy models are arriving at Cricket Wireless. This means that the pre-paid carrier will be offering the phone along with the major stateside carriers and U.S.Cellular (no offense to U.S. Cellular). The dummy Moto X models are in Woven Black although other carriers have been giving customers the choice between that model and Woven White. We're not sure if this means that the white variant will be MIA at Cricket. This is the standard version of the phone. Currently, only AT&T members can use the Moto Maker site to customize a version of the Moto X, although that exclusivity expires in November.

We have no word yet on how much Cricket plans on charging for the Motorola Moto X. Without asking consumers to sign a contract, the pre-paid carrier can't offer the phone for the subsidized $199.99 like the big guys do. For those who have been busy with other things (although what is more important in this world than mobile devices?), we can run through the specs again. The Moto X sports a 4.7 inch AMOLED screen with resolution of 760 x 1280 which works out to a pixel density of 316ppi. The dual-core 1.7GHz Motorola X8 processor is teamed with an Adreno 320 GPU. 2GB of RAM are on board and the user has access to 12GB of storage.

Looking for the microSD slot? You won't find one on the Moto X although you will find a 10MP rear facing camera that turns on with a double twist of the wrist. The camera captures video in 1080 x 1920 at 60fps. And there is a 2MP front-facing snapper. A 2200mAh cell keeps the fan spinning and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed. No word when the Cricket faithful will get their shot at the Moto X, but if we've learned one thing in all these years it is that once the dummy makes its appearance, the real thing can't be too far behind.
