The Moto X will be available from all of the major American carriers later this summer, but it's coming to Canada exclusively through Rogers. While one of the major selling points may be its immense customizability, the Canadian version will only ship in - you guessed it - black or white. It will be available for as little as $189.99 on select two-year plans.


The much-hyped handset is situated firmly at the high-end of the mid-range market, as it comes with a 4.7-inch 720p screen, 2GB of RAM, and Moto's custom processor (1.7GHz dual-core CPU, quad-core GPU). It doesn't blow the doors off of what's currently available, but it's not aimed at the hardcore crowd. The Moto X wants to have as broad an appeal as possible, and most users simply don't use the extra power crammed into high-end phones.

The Moto X will come with a 2200mAh battery and a 10MP camera. It's running Android 4.2.2, which may not be the latest version of Android, but it's understandable given all of the software customizations Motorola has crammed into this device. The always-on voice features along with its new notification system are the two largest selling points remaining, especially given that the "Made in the USA" branding doesn't mean as much on the northern side of the border.

    Robers? Oh, great.

    Let's hope we can purchase the phone unlocked on the Play store. I'd prefer to purchase out of contract.

      Doubt it will be on the Google Play store since Google has so far only sold Google Edition devices in the US...

      • shing93

        There will be a Google Edition of this phone though

        • deltatux

          Doesn't mean it'll be sold in Canada was my point.

    Rogers always had bad exclusives
