    Moto X to Ship 'somewhat simultaneously' with the Droid Series


    The folks at PhoneArena have a tip from a solid insider source suggesting the new Moto X will actually be released around the same time as the Motorola Droid series phones on Verizon. According to their source, the Moto X will hit the streets "somewhat simultaneously" as the new Droid series. Although they weren't more specific than that, a little deductive reasoning suggests we will see the Moto X shipping out somewhere between August 20th and August 23rd. Some unconfirmed previous rumors suggested an August 23rd release date to begin with.

    The final official reveal for the Moto X will be on August 1st, so hopefully we will know more specific details at that time. As always we will keep you apprised as more details emerge.

    I wonder if that means to Verizon, though? $100 says it's every other carrier, then Verizon a month or two later...

    very tempting to take you up on that bet

    With Verizon receiving 3 new Droids, I don't see much reason as to why they would want the Moto X in their lineup so early.

    Depends on if Google played their upper hand. If Google plans to sell the CDMA Moto X on the Play Store then Verizon will be furious about that without a doubt, and perhaps for the first time bow down and conform to keep from losing their @$$. Google is on the cusp of domination with this device, and those who stand in the way of their $500 million dollar marketing machine will likely be run the hell over for their insolence.

    Or it could be like all the other Nexus phones (except for the Galaxy Nexus) and be available in GSM only, so it can never be used on Verizon.

    That would've been my thought as well - but, if I remember right, a CDMA capable X has already passed through the FCC.

    I'm not so sure about that. They certainly won't be pushing the handset (spending advertising dollars), but I can see them carrying it. They just got the Droid announcement out of the way and opened pre-orders so there's really nothing that should prevent them from making it available as soon as orders open up.

    I'm going to go so far as to say the X will be nothing more than the Ultra in different clothing and a couple extra "features." Strictly speculation, but that's the way it's looking to me.....as of 7/23/13 at 9:07 pm Central

    Wait, wait...You mean to tell me that it is possible for a company to sell a CDMA and GSM capable device that can run on Verizon or AT&T WITHOUT it being approved by Verizon ?????
