Motorola’s Moto X is a solid phone, but part of its appeal are the customization options that allow users to engrave things into the back, change the color and even material of the back case and more via the Moto Maker online tool. But that started out as an AT&T exclusive, and remained so until today, when it’s expanding to Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon in the U.S.
Motorola promised today that Android 4.4 KitKat would be rolling out for the Moto X soon. In the mean time, the Moto Maker's expansion to the big four major US carriers is a welcome addition, allowing new Moto X buyers to choose from a set of colors for the device's backing, front edge, and accents. If you're paralyzed by choice, a Motorola Facebook app can link to your photos to act as a color picker. Unfortunately for US Cellular customers, black and white remain the only options at this time.
Custom Moto X phones on all four carriers start at just $99.99 for a 16-gigabyte model on a two year contract through Moto Maker, following the $100 on-contract price discount initiated last month by AT&T and Sprint.
