The Moto X, the phone for the average-consumer with true customization, is set to hit the Google Play Store very soon. It was announced at the Motorola Press Conference on August 1st, 2013 that Motorola, owned by Google, would be implementing this device into the Play Store in the upcoming weeks. One of the main features of the device is its customizing aspects. Unfortunately only the 16GB model will be offered at the beginning with one color. That means no customization at all. Many are hoping that Google will implement the MotoMaker, the software that allows you to customize your Moto X, into the Google Play Store. This will enable the user to buy the device outright versus having to pay the $200 for a 2-year contract with the launching carriers. The two devices available on the Google Play Store right now that are somewhat new is the Samsung Galaxy S4, and the HTC One. Pricing for the unlocked Moto X has not been discussed, but we’re hoping for something less than the two flagships in the current store. Finally, the best feature about purchasing a Moto X in the Google Play Store is the fact that you’ll be getting pure Android. This comes with the updates to the Google Edition phones much quicker than the skinned-variants of the phones. Overall, I’ll be considering purchasing a Moto X as I’m a sucker for pure Android.

What do you think about the Moto X heading to the Google Play Store? Will you be picking up one of these beauties featuring that pure swag? Let me know in the comments below!

The two devices available on the Google Play Store right now that are somewhat new are Galaxy S4 (Samsung) and HTC One. Pricing for the unlocked Moto X has not been discussed as yet but we all are looking forward to seeing “something” less pricy than the two flagships phones currently in the store. The upside of purchasing Moto X @ the Google Play Store is the fact that you’ll be getting standard version of Android coming with much more frequent updates for Google Edition phones than the skinned-variants Android phones.

    Moto X is pretty much stock android already, except for a couple features they added. I think the appeal of the Google Play Edition is the quick updates (Google Play HTC One and S4 got 4.3 a week after launch).

    Make up your mind, one minute your trashing this phone, the next your singing it’s praises. Why the sudden turn around?
