Video shows Guy Kawasaki unboxing his customized Motorola Moto X
Motorola advisor Guy Kawasaki has been passing off information about the Motorola Moto X almost from the beginning. Who could forget his hint about the customizable aspects of the device with the posting of a Porsche Exclusive on his Google+ page? Then, in late July, Kawasaki posted some pictures from what appeared to be a party held on the Motorola campus. One of the pictures showed a lucky gentleman holding a green Moto X.

On Wednesday, Kawasaki received his customized Motorola Moto X by Fed Ex. The phone has a customized short message on back which looks to be a web address. As for his color choice, he selected a white front with a yellow back with black accents. In the U.S., those wanting a customized version of the phone can use the Moto Maker or purchase the phone from AT&T. Eventually, Verizon customers also will get a chance to design their own Motorola Moto X.

What colors will you choose for your Motorola Moto X? The phone is expected to be launched August 23rd from multiple carriers including Verizon with the U.S. Cellular release coming just three days later.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Let me Google that for you: As for the colors, that is clearly a yellow back on the device with a white front and couple black accents. ;-)

That's why they're doing it. I've seen several news stories on this thing and it's all good press. America probably accounts for a decent amount of apples 14% worldwide market share, Google needs alot of focus here.

Doubt it would need a Google Edition since Motorola barely uses any sort of skin over default Android. Just look at Motorola's skins since the Droid X landed, they are barely noticeable it just adds a few things to tie up loose ends but they don't do like HTC with Sense nor Samsung with Touchwiz. Moto X is damn near Vanilla Android with a few slight additions and those additions will soon be so a part of Android that Motorola will just deliver Android in it's closest to pure form. I suspect that Motorola will be the first to land with a device with user choice boot, Motorola's version of android and Vanilla android.
