We first heard U.S. Cellular would get the Moto X last month when the regional carrier started pre-orders of the popular Motorola device. At the time we had no real specifics to when the handset would ship out to early customers, not until today. Now customers can buy the Moto X online and pick it up at the retail store this Friday.
Remarkably, the regional wireless provider is selling the Moto X at two different price points: $124.99 and $199.99 (16GB model). For those seeking the $124.99 price, need to know there is a small need. Customers looking to add a new line of service get the deal. If you are a U.S. Cellular subscriber with the intention of adding a line to your service, you’re good as well. Unfortunately, the deal isn’t for folks just looking to upgrade into the device during their renewal time, as that price stands at $199.99. Regardless of price, both options are subject to a new two-year agreement.
U.S. Cellular is selling the Moto X for $699.99 off contract, which is $100 more than what Motorola sells it for on their site. The only colors available will be Woven White and Woven Black, probably because Moto Maker (the customization program) is only available for AT&T right now. The Moto X rocks a 4.7-inch 720p display, dual-core 1.7GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and a 10 megapixel rear-facing camera.
Overall, we were impressed with the device when we handled it during our full Moto X review. Besides its minor flaws, we thought the handset ran pretty smooth, handled well, and did what it’s designed to do.
