Rogers to launch Motorola Moto X in Canada as an exclusive
A leaked internal document from Canadian carrier Rogers shows that the mobile operator will carry the Motorola Moto X as an exclusive in the country. The eagerly awaited Moto X will run over Rogers' 4G LTE pipeline and is expected to be launched next month. We could hear more about the handset next Monday, July 11th, if Motorola did indeed leave a hint with its first ad for the phone as we told you on Thursday.

As we've mentioned before, our source has informed us that those buying the phone over the Motorola website will be able to select the color of the back plate along with the trim. Yesterday, a new report said that those buying the Moto X online will be able to have the back of the phone engraved. Yesterday's report from ABC News also confirmed what our source told us weeks ago which is not to expect any hardware customization for the Moto X.

Those buying the Motorola Moto X from a carrier like Rogers will have to be happy with a standardized version of the handset. The phone will have a 4.7 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280 with a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro under the hood. What makes this model so interesting is the sensors on board that will allow the phone to know when you are driving and thus automatically turn on the speaker phone. Additionally, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has hinted about a feature that will know when you are about to snap a picture and open up the camera app automatically.
