    Not really anything surprising. Price seems to be higher than some had suspected, but that's probably more bad news than good as far as volume potential goes. All carrier launch as expected is good news though. Any info yet on how many SKUs are being used to cover everyone? Hoping single USA sku devices come soon.

    I would like to know what the off contract price will be, not interested in buying it on contract.

    More than any rumors had suggested. Probably $450-600. With no mSD option of any sort, I'm not even curious how nice it might be. If they do a Note targeting device I will be more curious, but unlikely buyer if there is no mSD.

    If it doesn't have an affordable off contract price, it's a big meh at its current price and specs.

    Yep. Possible low real total price was the only thing that was going to make this a hot item. I figured the new build approach and customizable nature were going to mean basic versions would be at low price points, but the contract prices seem to kill that idea. It will help Moto make money again finally I figure due to the 5 network single branding, but it's not going to move them into the major player market share position with Sammy and Apple they should be targeting.

    Ah so the price will still be USD 199 on contract!! What about off contract prices??

    EDIT: also, the customization tool will be available only for off contract units right? If not, how will it work?

    No Moto X love for us europeans. But it seems Moto isn't forggeting about Europe!

    No Moto X for the UK, other 'cool and exciting' devices in the portfolio planned for Europe

    Customization is exclusive to AT&T. They haven't mentioned Google selling an unlocked one directly. The off contract price from AT&T is $575 / $630, but that comes with AT&T bloatware.

    This phone is a complete fail on price even on contract.

    Thanks.

    Yeah I guess the rumours about a killer price tag were bogus.

    Definitely a huge disappointment on price. I was hoping this to be price closer to $399 for 16GB and $449 for 32GB off contract prices. At this price it definitely would have been worth it.

    Me three: Big FAIL["."]

    Price was to be the key to success. Oh, well…

    No SD. No 64GB IM. Presume polymer battery. No customization – for most of US, anyway.

    When it comes to those "unique twists" that we mentioned in the beginning, the highlights include the Moto Maker portal, Touchless Control, Active Display and Quick Capture camera.
    http://www.phonearena.com/news/Motor...colors_id45961

    Moto Maker portal: Four out of five carriers nixed it

    Touchless Control "…adds a dedicated natural language processor" or, That Is To Say, adds a 24/7 bug listening to you chat with the dog in the morning, get chewed out by the boss after lunch, and make love to your wife at night. Don't worry though, you can't ever turn it off and the battery's not removable. You'll get used to it… Right.
    More seriously, I think these guys are using Orwell's 1984 as a textbook.

    Active display: This could, perhaps, be useful. Nothing earth shaking, likely. We'll have to wait and see.

    Lotsa good cameras around. If we're real lucky maybe now Moto will have one, too.


    Just another also-ran nice handset. It's not gonna pull Moto out of any holes.
