Verizon to launch Motorola Moto X online this Thursday, August 29th

Verizon to launch Motorola Moto X online this Thursday, August 29th
If you're a Verizon customer looking to buy the Motorola Moto X, have we got news for you. The handset will be available online from Verizon starting on August 29th, this Thursday, priced at $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. What we need to mention is that the version of the phone available will be the standardized Moto X in either Woven White or Woven Black.

It is not known when the phone will be available at the carrier's retail stores. And Verizon has said that later this year it will allow its customers to order a customized version of the Motorola Moto X using the Moto Maker website. Right now, only AT&T customers are able to select the color of the front and back of the phone along with the trim. Originally, Motorola promised delivery of each custom order in no later than four days, although the Google wholly owned subsidiary has recently backed away from that promise for now. 

With a tweet from T-Mobile CEO John Legere hinting at a September availability for the phone at T-Mobile, we are waiting to hear when Sprint plans on launching its version of the Moto X.

Can anyone tell me why this would be better than a $100 Droid mini if I put a case on it? I played with one over the weekend and I found the size to be refreshing from my Note 2.

Moto X beats/ is the same in almost every category. The only major difference is the software, specs wise they are pretty close.

Probably the biggest difference is the screen size. If you can live with .4" less screen, decision is easy.

The more stock experience, slightly larger AMOLED display (compared to the LCD on the Mini), matte finish on the back, and slightly larger battery.

I'm still getting the Mini, though. I prefer LCD over AMOLED, and I like the higher pixel density. I would have liked it more if Motorola put the matte soft touch Kevlar instead of the glossy finish on the Mini, but it's certainly not a deal breaker.

Don't launch this, launch the G2..... Motorola is garbage *im not a fanboy*. I enjoy all good phones but seriously if I didn't know any better.. All of the new droids that just got released are the same in every single way. Except for the exterior of course. Sorry I know I'm bashing the phone but I have a right to since I'm on Verizon

I'm on Verizon as well. The only reason why I won't get the Droid Maxx would've been because it doesn't have an SD slot. Other than that, from what I saw & compared to my AT&T (work phone) S4, it's a bangin device. I'd have to see the G2 in person & compare the two but I can't see myself using an LG as my main phone. I won an Optimus G Pro & it's actually impressive, but not switch from Motorola impressive.
