After all the excitement (or disappointment) about the Moto X launch and all those custom features we’ve learned some good news from Verizon. Motorola themselves confirmed that other carriers aside from AT&T would be getting the customization options, and now Verizon has reassured us this is true by tweeting the news.
Original leaks and rumors about the Moto X being highly customizable had many potential buyers extremely excited. Being able to choose up to 16 different custom colors, 7 different trim colors, and eventually even wood backs and more sure sounded nice. Then yesterday Moto revealed the phone, and confirmed that initially AT&T would have an exclusive on the customization options.
If you were excited, but sadly are on Verizon, don’t worry because all those options are coming soon. It’s too bad because if you want to snag a Moto X on launch day or week, you won’t get the free custom options. However, later this year Verizon will be adding that to their list of options, and eventually other carriers will follow suite.
The online site “MotoMaker” will be your one-stop shop for the Moto X, and we saw some neat videos about the service last night. We don’t know how long AT&T will have the exclusive, but we do know for sure that Verizon will have the same free service coming “later this year.”
