This now means Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile have access to the Moto Maker tool and their customers can now use the tool and get custom editions sent to them from Motorola’s US factory in Fort Worth, Texas.
Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside did say 100,000 Moto X units were being made every week, pointing at around one million sold so far. The number is nothing compared to Apple’s nine million sales in three days, but Motorola are only focusing in the US and only had one main carrier until today.
At two months old, the Moto X is still a viable candidate for the next device, despite being a little underpowered internally. The real big features are Motorola’s new software package and the custom design, two features no other company can match at the moment.
We still do not know what the future is for the Moto Maker, does it simply die at the end of the Moto X life or will it be revive when the new edition comes out. Motorola may do an iterative design, changing the Moto Maker tool every few months with added features for new buyers, more customisation, to the point where the buyer can choose the processor, RAM, screen-size and all sorts of other options.
No news on when the wood Moto X options will be available, Motorola is still sticking to their Q4 2013 announcement. In another piece of news on the Moto Maker, Motorola has added engravings back, after taking them away for lacklustre quality.
