The hype was grand, the buzz huge, the marketing pricey, but ultimately Motorola’s Moto X disappointed more than it enthused. And then it slowly slipped into anonymity, with America’s carriers now struggling to sell the mid-range, overpriced 4.7-incher what with so many high-end, similarly priced 5-inchers and above out and about.
But maybe it’s not game over for the Moto X just yet. After all, the prices have begun to drop and the one key selling point, Moto Maker, is just a month or so away from spreading its wings.
Or at least that’s what notorious pundit @evleaks seems to think, likely based on his always reliable sources on the inside. The customization tool, currently available exclusively on AT&T, is said to make its way to Verizon on November 11.
That would still leave Sprint and T-Mobile in the dark, but as far as we know Motorola only stroke an exclusivity deal with AT&T, so chances are if Moto Maker is landing on Verizon, it’s landing on all three networks.
As a quick refresher, Moto X users can make their phones their own courtesy of this Motorola-special endeavor, through personalized back, front and accent colors, customized engravings, wallpapers and accessories. Also, by the end of the year, an array of build materials is tipped to be added to Moto Maker, including wood. Pretty neat, eh?
