Motorola X to launch July 8th for $299?
The eagerly awaited Motorola X has been rumored to appear at Google I/O and the latest speculation continues to have the handset getting introduced during Google's developer conference in May. The phone would then launch on July 8th via Verizon for $299 on contract. Similar to the way that the Google Play Store offers the Google Nexus 4 for an off-contract price, the Motorola X will be available from Google. The phone will come with a locked bootloader via Big Red, although you can get it unlocked at a price of $15 a month. If you buy the phone from the Google Play Store, the bootloader will come unlocked.

The Motorola X is not a Nexus handset which means that it will contain some bloatware that can be removed once the phone is unlocked, and it is still expected to be available from multiple carriers. Pricing for the Motorola X from other carriers is unknown although we would expect it to be not far from Verizon's price. This is the first Motorola handset to feature input from Google since the latter acquired the OEM in 2011. The device is supposed to offer a 5 inch edge-to-edge screen, like the Motorola DROID RAZR M, and have Android 5.0, Key Lime Pie, pre-installed out of the box.

Keep in mind that this is still speculation, coming from someone who apparently has leaked some Motorola news before. Still, May can't get here fast enough.
