Motorola's new Moto X, Moto G (2nd gen), and Moto 360 devices are starting to make their way to major U.S. carriers in the weeks following IFA 2014.

In a previous article, we explored the supply situation at AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile. Naturally, the situation has changed since then. So in the sections below, we will examine the latest developments.

AT&T

AT&T is offering the Moto X in three color options. The unlocked Moto X costs $526.99. Still, the phone is available for $99.99 with two-year contract.

The new Moto G (also dubbed Moto G2) is not available at AT&T right now. However, users can access AT&T's network using the unlocked Moto G sold through Motorola's online store. Motorola is offering this version of the Moto X for only $179.99.

Although AT&T announced plans to sell the Moto 360, the carrier has yet to stock the highly-anticipated smartwatch. Consumers will need to wait patiently for further updates from AT&T.

Verizon

The next-gen Moto X is available for $499.99 unlocked at the Verizon Store. In addition, Verizon is offering the phone for $99.99 with 2-year contract. Normally, the Moto X with 2-year contract costs $149.99 at Verizon. Consumers wishing to purchase the device through Verizon Edge will only need to make monthly payments of $24.99 for 20 months.

At this time, Verizon is offering the Moto 360 for preorder. The smartwatch will start shipping to consumers on Monday, Oct. 27. Buyers can choose either the dark body with black strap, or light body with gray strap option.

Curiously, the new Moto G continues to be absent at the Verizon store. Also, the nationwide carrier has yet to announce plans to carry this smartphone.

Sprint

Unfortunately, Sprint will not be carrying the new Moto X. This development was recently confirmed in a shocking Motorola tweet on Wednesday, Sept 17. Neither the Moto 360 nor the Moto G 2nd-gen is being offered by Sprint as well.

T-Mobile

T-Mobile is not offering the new Moto X directly. Instead, buyers will need to purchase the Pure Edition 2014 Moto X at the Motorola Store. Afterwards, users can access the T-Mobile's network with this version of the Moto X. This is the same phone that can access AT&T's network as well.

One benefit consumers can consider is that the pure edition does not come with added "bloatware" that is common with phones bought through the carriers.
