Motorola Moto X soak test invites sent out to AT&T customers

Motorola Moto X soak test invites sent out to AT&T customers
Motorola has a tradition. When one of its handsets is about to receive a software update, the manufacturer asks a small number of owners of the device to test out the update in what is called a "soak test". By doing this, Motorola puts at risk only a small number of handsets while still being able to determine if the update is ready to launch. Motorola has just send out e-mail invitations to AT&T customers with the Motorola Moto X to see if anyone is interested in taking part in a new soak test for the device.

To participate in the soak test, you must be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network and have your Motorola Moto X registered. This could be a test for an update similar to the one for the rear camera that T-Mobile customers with the Moto X received just the other day. Motorola Mobility's VP for Product Management, Punit Soni, posted on his Google+ account on Tuesday, that other carriers will be receiving the update.


Another possibility is that the update being tested is the one that brings Android 4.3 to the handset. Considering that the Motorola Moto X is the first Motorola smartphone built with Google's input, it should be one of the first non-Nexus or Google Edition devices to receive the Android 4.3 update.

Yeah it's a very good phone but they should lower the price. Whatever it is assembled in US or not but it doesn't deserve its current price.

I felt the same way until I got one in my hands. Have you actually used the device? I mean really used it? Not for a couple minutes in a carrier store, but for more than an hour. It's worth every cent and I paid full price for mine after I played with one for a while. It's by far the best phone out IMO. Just the right size. The features are actually features and not gimmicks. Everything about it is win. If you're thinking the price is too high because it is dual core, than I suggest you actually use it. It's the smoothest Android I've every owned and trust me, I've had them all. HTC One, S4, Nexus 4 and the list goes on.

This is likely for the camera update. I don't think Motorola would send out 4.3 before rolling the camera update out to all the carriers, especially since the camera performance is the biggest complaint reviewers seem to have.
