Motorola's new Moto X Smartphone Can be Customized and Ordered Online

submitted on August 2, 2013 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
Motorola is assembling its new Moto X smartphone in Fort Worth, Texas and expects to start taking orders later this month. The Android phone can be ordered and customized online at Motomaker,,pg.html . You'll be able to choose from thousands of combinations - either black or white for the front, one of 18 colors for the back, plus one of 7 accent colors around the camera and buttons. The phone has a very comfortable curved back with a small dimple in the center of the back to rest your finger in. They're even testing a wood back for release by the end of the year.

You can buy the phone at Verizon, AT&T, US Cellular, T-Mobile, Sprint and Bestbuy in black or white only. But if you order online you can customize the colors of the front, back, edges, volume and power buttons, and the ring around the camera. You can also have a name or message engraved on the back of the phone, and upload your contacts and a photo for the wallpaper. The phone will ship within 4 days of placing the online order. Color-customized versions of the phone will be available only with AT&T service at first.

The Moto X has these features:
4.7-inch AMOLED (RGB) screen
1280 x 720 HD resolution
10-megapixel rear camera, 1080p video (30fps)

    Yeah, it is a big day at Mot. We had a huge "Moto X launch" party last week (which I unfortunately missed).
