Live unboxing: My own tricked-out Moto X [Video]

August 30, 2013|By Salvador Rodriguez

Motorola has touted its new Moto X as one of the most customizable smartphones on the market.

To press the point, AT&T, the wireless carrier that is selling the device, invited us to trick out our own Moto X, which finally arrived in the mail.

Join us at 11:30 a.m. as The Times' Michelle Maltais and I check out the new device.

LIVE DISCUSSION: We'll unbox the Moto X at 11:30 a.m. PDT

I ordered my device a few days ago and asked for a 16 GB Moto X with a dark blue back cover and white front cover. The accents should be a bright yellow. You can see what it's supposed to look like at the bottom of this post.

Consumers who purchase the Moto X through AT&T can customize the Moto X a number of different ways. They can choose various colors for the device's back and front covers as well as its accents. Users can also customize other aspects of the device, such as the phone's background picture.

In total, customers can potentially come up with more than 2,000 different combinations.

The phone is available from AT&T with 16 GB of storage for $200 or 32 GB for $250 with a two-year contract. Verizon offers the device with 16 GB of storage for $200 with a two-year contract, but for now, it cannot be customized.
