The Motorola X (or Moto X, or Google X Phone) has been a star of the rumor mill since before the Samsung Galaxy S4 went on sale, its existence has been confirmed for months now and Google officials have even been spotted using it. And yet the thing is still not officially official.
But we’re (painfully slowly) getting there. The latest word around the street is the X will be commercially available starting August 26 on US Cellular. The intel comes courtesy of a leaked internal memo of the carrier, which looks legit, so we can safely assume that one month from now people will be able to finally score the Moto X.
No, I haven’t messed up my dates. It’s just that I don’t think a minor network like USC will put such a highly anticipated device as the X on sale at the same time as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile. Especially Verizon, the oldest and most trusted Moto partner in the States. Hence, my guess is the mythical phone will be available for sale starting August 15, at the latest.
Meanwhile, in yet another unusual hype-building effort, Motorola has tweeted a photo from one of the company’s Texas factories. In the pic’s center, we see a mysterious gadget being assembled. Yeah, right, very mysterious especially when reading the text that goes with the photo – “This guy is building exactly what you think he is. Designed by you. Assembled in the USA.”
