Last week, Punit Soni (Motorola’s VP of Product Management) told us that we were “days” away from the arrival of Developer Editions and other carrier models of the Moto X. Yesterday, Motorola updated their Moto X “ways to buy” page, showing off the new Developer Edition, which will sport a black front panel coupled with a white woven rear back plate. The render of the phone also shows the words “DEVELOPER EDITION” engraved on the bottom.
The company says the phone will have “of course” an unlockable bootloader, but reminds you in footnotes that unlocking the bootloader of the phone “voids all warranties and may cause serious harm to your device.”
The page mentions that the dev edition will “have a look all its own,” meaning the two-tone color scheme is something different than what you’ll find in carrier models. Now, once MotoMaker is fully opened up or should you buy a Moto X card from AT&T, you could essentially build a similar looking device.
The listing also confirms 32GB of storage and an unlockable bootloader. No price is listed just yet, but since the AT&T 32GB model runs $629, I’d be surprised if it was lower.
As we said before, the phone can be already ordered from AT&T, with MotoMaker customization support coming soon. Other U.S. carriers including Verizon, Sprint and U.S. Cellular will also have the device in stores soon.
