Sales dates announced for Verizon HTC One, AT&T Moto X


For as much energy as we put into looking forward to smartphone launches, these events all too often don’t give us the complete pictures on these phones, leaving out a few key details – occasionally, that means pricing info, but more often than not, it’s the actual date the phone will arrive that we’re not given until later. For a couple models we’ve been talking about recently, we’ve seen sign-up pages go live and heard plenty of rumors, but continued to go without official confirmation. Today, a pair of carrier announcements finally reveal just how the Verizon HTC One and AT&T Moto X will arrive.

AT&T’s Moto X hits stores August 23, but we imagine that many customers will be going online to make their own custom Moto X, instead; the Moto Maker tool will be available that same day. In fact, some lucky users who register with AT&T will get an early shot, being chosen to design their phones on August 19. 16GB and 32GB of the phone will sell on-contract for about $200 and $250, respectively.

Verizon finally catches up to the other major US carriers on August 22, when sales of its HTC One will begin. This one’s going to go for $200 on-contract, but so far at least, there’s been no further sign of that blue version that’s been lurking around.
