Motorola's own website outs the 32GB Motorola Moto X Developer Edition

Motorola's own website outs the 32GB Motorola Moto X Developer Edition
Motorola's own website has outed the coming Developer Edition of the Motorola Moto X. This is in addition to the expected Google Play edition of the Moto X, that is rumored to be launching with the same exact software that any carrier version of the phone will contain. In other words, if the speculation is true, none of the Motorola goodies will be removed from the Google Play version of the Moto X.

Turning back to the Developer Edition of the Motorola Moto X, we don't expect to see any of the Motorola goodies removed from this phone either. This model is expected to be released with 32GB of native storage and the phone appears to have a black front, white back, and silver accents. The back cover says Developer Edition so that your friends will be able to see exactly what you bought and realize that they should be jealous.

The picture on Motorola's website also mentions that the device will have an unlockable bootloader, which is what you are buying this phone for in the first place. This links to a warning further down on the site that cautions you that if you do unlock the bootloader on the phone, all warranties will be void and the act might cause serious damage to your phone. The manufacturer urges you to know what you are doing before unlocking the handset. Which reminds us that no pricing was revealed. Based on other similar models, you should expect a price over $600 for the Motorola Moto X Developer Edition.

Please price it around $450 Moto! Not that the product is too inferior to flagships, but coz it actually doesnt justify the price on paper. Alas, im yet to use it to pass a judgement. O.T. Love the speed at which Alan F. churns out good articles (mostly). Kudos!

i'll pay whatever they are ask for it , if they fix the camera, it is the only reason that's keeping me from buying it.

What's wrong with the camera? All tests so far place it on par with the cameras on phones like the Galaxy S4.

The only things I've heard against it is that the colors are dull and low light isn't as good as expected. Definitely manageable, especially when compared to Motorola's cameras before this.

all of which can be fixed with software updates.

I really hope Motorola sends out an update soon. I don't mind the dull colors, but I've seen the low light shots, and it's definitely not as good as what was demonstrated in this article;

Where are these tests?? I have yet to see a review that said Moto X's camera is on par with the S4.

"phones like the Galaxy S4" = High End 2013 Smartphones

i'd say the Moto X's camera is the most well balanced out of the current crop of Smartphones. good low light performance with decent sharpness. like merging the Ultrapixel Camera and Samsung's 13MP Sensor. everything Moto needs to fix camera-wise is software based. the problems won't be easy to fix but they'll be easy to notice when they're fixed being that Moto's New Camera handles a lot of the editing by itself.

If you have a friend in the U.S you can send them the money to buy it and ship it to you I guess. Or you can buy it from a website that specializes in unlocked devices; NegriElectronics ships to every country except for Turkey, Russia, and Brazil.

wanted a purple and black version?

Funny guy. That would actually be pretty sweet. I was just unimpressed with the number of options. Didn't care for most of the back only get to choose from white or black for the front & I hate the way two-tone phones look. Not enough accent colors, etc. It's something they should look to flesh out more next time around.

i completely agree, the color renders seem far off what the actual colors are in real life as well. The red accents are basically pink on moto maker
