Best Buy rolling out pre-orders for Verizon, Sprint Moto X models, $199 on contract or $700 without


If you’re considering the Moto X to be your next Android phone and cannot wait to open your wallet, you should know that Best Buy has opened pre-orders for it. So far the only available models are the ones from Verizon and Sprint. We figured that AT&T is probably going to take advantage of their exclusivity to custom-ordering the device and offer it directly via their retail locations and website.

In terms of specs, the Moto X could be considered a mid-entry Android phone. It sports a 1.7 GHz dual core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (no microSD slot), 10-megapixel rear shooter, 3-megapixel front camera, 4G LTE radios and Android 4.2 (4.3 coming soon). The price on either networks is $199 on contract or a staggering $700 without a commitment. However, Best Buy is known for jacking up non-contract prices. Expect the phone to be around $575 once it officially releases. You can also wait for the Google Play Edition to hit the Play Store if you are not a fan of 2-year commitments.
