Motorola's Moto 360, Moto X and Moto G are coming to the major carriers, with pre-order sales starting at various online sites. U.S. carriers that will sell Motorola's latest devices include AT&T and Verizon. As of now, Sprint and T-Mobile haven't announced whether they will carry any of those Motorola devices.
In the sections below, we will explore the current supply situation for the carriers mentioned above.
Moto 360 pre-orders are relatively scarce given its recent popularity. The device has already sold out at the official Motorola store. The retail price is USD $250 for both black and gray band versions and is currently sold out at Best Buy as well.
At this time, only Verizon is offering the Moto 360 with leather-band for pre-order. The nationwide carrier plans to ship out the smartwatch beginning on Oct. 27, 2014. Consumers have two colors to choose from - gray and black.
AT&T will also sell the Moto 360, but the mobile service provider did not mention when pre-orders begin. There is still no official word from Sprint and T-Mobile regarding when the Moto 360 will be available at their stores.
New Moto X (Moto X+1)
Just to be clear, there are actually two types of Moto X phones - one original and one new. To distinguish between the devices, consumers have dubbed the newer device the "Moto X+1". Officially, Motorola still refers to the Moto X+1 as the Moto X.
AT&T is the first to formally announce plans to sell the phone. Buyers will have multiple customization options when the Moto X+1 is available. The phone company already has a similar custom design service for the original Moto X as well. This service will continue with AT&T's next-gen Moto X.
Verizon has launched a sign-up page for the Moto X+1. Like AT&T, the company is offering a similar designed-by-you service for the consumer. Neither Sprint nor T-Mobile has said when they will start stocking the Moto X+1 handset.
Moto G 2014 (Moto G2)
Like Moto X+1, the Moto G2 is the second generation device in its series. However, the Moto G2 is simply called the "new Moto G" by Motorola. In fact, the name Moto G2 was invented by the fans.
The only place to order the new Moto G2 is at the official Motorola online store. Even so, the phone may start becoming available at the major carriers in the coming days. For now, U.S. consumers will need to wait patiently for more updates from the top mobile service providers in the country.
