When we first heard about Motorola’s upcoming Motorola X superphone in December, we didn’t get many details except for that it was in the works.Motorola recently said that Motorola X, the company’s highly anticipated superphone that aims to topple Samsung and Apple out of contention will be announced on Google I/O this May and would shortly be available via Verizon on July 8th under a two year, $299 contract.The unit is expected to be sold for $299 with a standard two-year contract on Verizon, and unlocked versions will be sold on the Google Play Store. The ability to unlock the boot loader will be available on all units, including ones purchased from Verizon
The 5-inch Motorola X is NOT a Nexus phone and that some of its bloatware can be removed upon unlocking the device. Further accounts also said that it’ll have with it an on board Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie and an “edge-to-edge screen” like the DROID RAZR M. Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile have yet to confirm about the X’s availability on their side and as well as its future sticker price which is reported to be on the same plane as Verizon’s.
It will have some bloatware but with the unlocking feature, that bloatware could be removed. It’s an interesting development, showing that even though Google now owns Motorola, they are maintaining their identities as separate companies, while working together.
