Motorola's Moto X smartphone launched in late August and has been successful among consumers especially AT&T customers as they have been exclusively able to purchase a custom handset through the Moto Maker website. However, AT&T's monopoly on these custom devices has ended since the Moto Maker website officially opened up to Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint subscribers as of today.
For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about, the Moto Maker website is a place where customers can personalize their own Moto X and choose exactly how they want it to look. You manually choose the back, front, and accent colors from a variety of finishes and have the option to get a short name or message engraved on the rear of the device. To take it a step further, the website lets you choose a name or greeting that will show up when the device is turned on, which wallpaper you'd like setup by default, and even allows you to have Google Sync automatically configured with an existing Google account.
The customized versions sell on-contract for $99 (16GB) and $149.99 (32GB) and are said to be delivered within 4 days of placing your order. Check out the source link below for more details.
