    Just as predicted (and just like they did before), it looks like AT&T is getting a timed Moto Maker exclusive on the new Moto X. A new rumor suggests Verizon won't get the Moto Maker customized version of the device until September 26th. No other info has been presented at this time regarding Sprint and T-Mobile in all of this, but if this rumor holds true, we expect them to be later as well.

    We will keep you updated if this gets corroborated or refuted. Here's a link to Moto Maker.

    Instead of looking... Is it still confirmed vzw won't have a developer edition? The att pure edition has CDMA capabilities but I don't know if it works.

    Yes. Verizon confirmed they won't get the Pure Edition. Of course, they could change their mind, but we doubt it.

    Knew AT&T would have an exclusive timed deal for a bit. Just glad it's not too much longer.

    I still can't figure why VZW never got the 64GB MotoX?!?!

    9 days isn't that long to wait. Heck I went from March to Sept waiting for the 360!

    How does the Moto Maker work exactly? When I go to the Verizon website, there isn't an option for the customized version of Moto X (last year's). Is that because they are discontinued? I was just wondering if you order the phone from Verizon or directly from Motorola and then take it to Verizon for activation? How does it work? I went into the Verizon store today to ask, and they didn't even know about the new Moto X, told me they hadn't heard a peep about it, and weren't even sure if they would carry it. I knew more about it than they did, and I was at least hoping they would know when they were getting it.

    But should this be considered an exclusive though? Last year VZW launched the Moto X and it took a few weeks to gain access to MotoMaker. DroidLife had reported from "reliable" sources that VZW wasn't launching the new X until the 25th anyhow. But I guess the time between their particular launches could be seen as an exclusive for AT&T, though be it a very short one.

    Only works for the first one right now but:

    Go here: https://www.motorola.com/us/motomaker?pid=FLEXR1
    Click BUILD YOURS or Build now or whatever.
    Design your Moto X.
    On Checkout you say "FOR VERIZON".
    They send phone. You call VZW. Activate.
    Profit.,
