Come September or maybe even late August, people in the US would be getting the newly launched Moto X in flesh to play around with. However, while that would mark the end of a long and eventful wait (considering the amount of leaks and speculations that led us to the real thing in the end) for the Motorola handset, there is another version of the same waiting in the wings and it’s worth every bit to wait for that too. Many of you might have already guessed it, it is the Google Play edition of the Moto X that is being talked of here.
As for the Moto X handset, the device has been priced $199 for the 16 GB and $299 for the 32 GB version of the smartphone, which also includes getting tied up to the carrier for 2 years. Those that would be carrying the Moto X in the US include Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, along with the U.S. Cellular. However, with the carrier coming in to the picture, expect the respective Moto X devices to be included with a lot of bloatware. That won’t be the case with the Google Play Edition of the Moto X as the OS would be stock Android version. Such a device will surely appeal to those who have been impressed with the Moto X device but would like the goodness of pure Android Jelly Bean to be included in the package.
So far as the handset itself goes, there are chances that users would be able to customize the set to their personal choice, something that is already being touted as one of the strong points of the device. However, it’s not known for sure if the Google Play Edition of the Moto X too will have as many customizable options. The cost of such a device will be another important consideration for it to make a dent in the smartphone segment.
