One of the ongoing mysteries surrounding the launch of Motorola’s Moto X has concerned the phone’s release on T-Mobile. Everyone involved has been decidedly less than forthcoming about the situation, leaving use to piece together the story from what little’s been plainly asserted. That had been looking like T-Mobile might not carry the phone itself at all, and would instead direct interested shoppers over to Motorola to buy the handset directly from the manufacturer. However, late last month an alternate theory emerged, suggesting that Google would offer the T-Mobile (or just otherwise carrier-unlocked) Moto X through Google Play. Today we finally start seeing some hard evidence arrive to help us make sense of this all, with a product page for the T-Mobile Moto X going live on Motorola’s site.
Both black and white versions of the handset are currently listed as out of stock, but even not being able to place an order, this page does appear to give us a clear answer about that rumor of Google Play sales, claiming that Motorola.com has an exclusive on sales of the T-Mobile Moto X.
We’d love to see these phones actually be available for order, but barring any unforeseen development, it now looks at this point that we can close the book on the T-Mobile Moto X sales questions: online-only, direct from Motorola, and for just about $600 a pop.
