Meet The Motorola Skip: An NFC Clip That Unlocks Your Moto X And Has No Business Costing $20

Update: Motorola posted more concrete details on the Skip in an official blog post. It's made out of fabric, not metal, which implies that the clasp uses a couple of magnets. On the plus side, the Skip includes three "dots" - NFC stickers that can be paired in the same manner and bypass a lock screen or PIN. The Skip will be included free with Moto Maker purchases.

[New App] Motorola Drops Droid Zap Sharing App Into The Play Store, And No, You Can't Use It Yet

AT&T To Android Users: We Don't Support Unlocked Bootloaders, So Stop Asking Us About Every Phone

In preparation for reporting on the general state of the Moto X bootloader, we reached out to AT&T for an official statement on the matter. We know that many potential buyers want to know whether they can fully modify their phones, especially after the HTC One X and Galaxy S4 were denied unlockable bootloaders on the carrier.

The build number JZO54M is, according to Google's own codename site, an Android 4.1.2 build (specifically, Android 4.1.2 R2.1). Sounds like Verizon done goofed. We've reached out for confirmation, but I'd be skeptical if the Verizon XOOM suddenly bunny-hopped from Android 4.0 to Android 4.2.

T-Mobile Won't Be Selling The Moto X For Now, But Direct Purchase Through Motorola Will Be Possible

You might have noticed the pricing of the Moto X when it was announced yesterday. $199 is a typical price for a new subsidized phone on a 2-year contract, but what about T-Mobile? The magenta carrier doesn't do traditional subsidies anymore, so what's the deal? Well, a close reading of the original PR makes it clear that T-Mobile isn't going to carry the device in stores or online. It'll still exist, though.
