    I think they may be overloaded. Wife motomaker phone came quickly and as ordered a week and a half ago. I ordered a black one from Amazon and it came with a white charger and cable.

    At the low price, now a penny on Amazon, they have to be selling a lot of them.

    They built and shipped mine in 3 days! Couldn't be more pleased. Probably swamped with orders.

    Actually only 108 orders all day. Their site went down at 8:01 CST 1 min after their promo started. Hasn't been up since.

    Looks like I'll be joining a few of the others in this thread and jumping from my GNex to a Moto X.

    Got a Cyber Monday code today on the first of the 2 make-up days so I'll hopefully be ordering it in the next day or two when my bank shows the $ I deposited. I don't care for the locked down bootloader and really wanted the Verizon Developer Edition, but they were gone before I could get in and snatch one. So I'll just go with this one and "tweak" my 2012 N7 for now until I find a new toy I can mod to my hearts content. I'm sure they will be rare on Big Red, but I can keep hoping. (And yeah, if I want consistent service in my rural area, I have to stay on Big Red.)

    So hopefully I'll have my phone in hand around the 16-17th.

    I'm confident that those who are coming from a Galaxy nexus to a Moto X will be just as impressed with the Moto X as I still am.

    What advantage is there in rooting the Motor X. What about future updates?

    On my Rezound it presented problems getting back in sync with updates!

    If they work on the camera issues, then updates might be important.

    The newest updates seem to fix the camera issues. The camera is awesome. Also with the Moto X rooted I can use Xposed framework. As a result I have a full reboot menu, no YouTube ads and much more. Also I use adaway, so no ads in free apps. If I want to go back it takes me about 6 mins with RSD.

    I should add...that the first few times you root it can be daunting...but after you "know your device" its cake.

    WARNING:::;BEFORE YOU ROOT..BE SURE YOU ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS AND ARE SURE OF THE PROCESS AND WHAT PROGRAM TO USE AND ITS EXPLOITS...

    Well that's good to hear. Last I read (I'll admit I only briefly looked around as I was considering this phone, the LG G2 & HTC One) the latest update jacked the root and I never checked to see if it was fixed after that.

    I'll admit, I gotta have my own boot animations on my phones and like to do my own theme stuff/mods.

    I FINALLY got it Thursday. Worth the wait! I haven't been able to stop playing with it, and the battery life is great - I don't miss my GNexus at all.
