MotoMaker Coming to Verizon Moto X on November 11, According to @evleaks

moto x motomaker

According to famed tech leaker @evleaks, we could see the launch of custom Moto X devices through MotoMaker as early as November 11. We don’t necessarily have visual proof or word from our sources to help the story, but this man doesn’t typically Tweet something if he doesn’t believe it to be the real deal. So call it a rumor for now, but November was the time frame tossed around as a potential VZW MotoMaker launch shortly after AT&T was given the exclusive deal in August. 

We’ve already taken you on a couple of tours of MotoMaker, so be sure to check out the latest with our build of the green Moto X pictured above to familiarize  yourself.

Should November be the month for Verizon and MotoMaker, are any of you considering selling your black or white carrier version? Did some of you hold out for this moment?

    Verizon has to modify any updates and remove features they do not want provided. When I updated my Nokia Lumia 928 with the Amber update, it came with a new call block application. Guess what? Verizon disabled it. They provide this same service on a PAID basis, so no free call blocking for any Verizon customers. Verizon also eliminated the FM radio feature that other Lumia models got with the Amber update. This shows you the amount of work needed with an update before Verizon will bless it. Doe is stink? Yup. Will it change anytime soon? Nope.

    I’m kinda at a loss. The likelihood of there being a vzw N5 is low and the Moto X, though pretty awesome, is not worth the $650 it will cost me to own (especially loaded w/ vzw’s ridiculous bloatware package). Ever since acquiring a nexus phone, I no longer will take a skinned alternative. My Gnex, however, is on its way out and I am in need of a new phone but the choices are severely lacking right now and don’t seem any better in the near future. I guess one can only hope for something new and vanilla (that runs on vzw) is on the horizon.

    I held out for 32GB with MotoMaker. Getting that cherry back is going to be HOT!

    I’m an AT&T customer but I’m still holding out for the supposed price drop… hoping that’ll come with this? The rumor I heard was 100, even 50 would seem appropriate I think. I’m not up for paying more than I did for my iPhone for less GB. I do dig the 50GB of cloud space though, that’ll be really nice, but I wouldn’t pay for that as an extra feature.

    I’m waiting :)

    Are people really excited about this? I’m honestly curious. Just doesn’t seem like a make or break thing for me. I’d much rather see them focusing on making an overall better device than allowing me to pick a couple colors.

      overall better? please elaborate.

    We are still to fathom to the situation that Moto is not the default choice in India and the adjacent countries. When Apple, Samsung and Nokia have been the preferred choices for most of the mobile users, why Moto should leave far behind? I just want to know, whether the mobile ad network companies like adcolony or revmob or appnext have ever focused on Moto?

  • Gnex

    Just in case anyone’s curious, the Nexus 5 will come in a 32GB variant. Via Android Police.

      sweet. If i was in the market and I wasnt forced to use verizon due to signal issues, id be down for this nexus

      • Gnex

        I’m not even in the market for a new phone, but I’m gonna buy it anyway lol.

        • Godzilla

          with a name like yours i would expect you to

          • Gnex

            Got my Moto X a few weeks ago, but it’s no Nexus. I’ll probably open up a line on T-mo just to test out their coverage in my area, because ain’t nobody got time for coverage maps. I do have one question for you, though… While you were using the X, did you notice a bug with the launcher where your wallpaper would turn black before opening the app drawer? That sh*t drove me nuts.

          • Godzilla

            I personally did not see that. My experience with the homescreen was superb. One of the high points of the phone.

            I agree on coverage maps because the dead zones i ran into with ATT signal sure as hell didnt show on their map.

            they might do that for smoothness. but if it is a bug, there are plenty of little bugs like that. for instance… when docked daydream doesnt come back if you use it. or when in moto x car dock. the only time i have had it go into car mode is when i first put it into the dock to ‘feel it out’. everytime i have docked it with a charge… no car mode.
