While the Moto X will be available through T-Mobile, Don’t expect to be able to walk into one of the carrier’s retail location and pick one up, at least for now.
For reasons unknown, T-Mobile does not plan to market a version of the Moto X compatible with its LTE network in its stores at this time. Speaking with AllThingsD, T-Mobile Chief Marketing Officer Mike Sievert said, “The Moto X optimized for T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network will initially be available through Motorola’s channels.” He went on to add, “We do not plan to stock Moto X devices immediately in our stores but are working closely with Motorola to make the Moto X a great experience for T-Mobile customers. Any news about distribution in our stores would come at a later date.”
So the company hasn’t completely ruled out carrying the highly anticipated phone in its stores at some point, but as to when that will happen is anyone’s guess at this time.
