Moto X budget edition may include swappable casing colors

While the current first-wave Moto X devices from Motorola allow custom-order colors and etching, a tip today suggests that a low-cost version of the device might include the ability to swap out casings whenever the user chooses. What we're seeing today is a combination of a photo of some colored backsides of a next-generation Moto X (or whatever it'll be called in the future) alongside reminder that Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside spoke up recently on a low-cost device for developing countries. Could this be it?

DROID Maxx Review

DROID Maxx Review

In the DROID Maxx is Motorola's vision for longest-lasting battery life in a device that's part of a very close-knit family of smartphones all released in the same generation. There's a DROID Maxx, a DROID Ultra, a DROID Mini, and the Moto X. These devices deliver essentially the same experience as one another, with only minor differences between each of them. The DROID Maxx provides the most premium experience of the series.

Moto X online off-contract availability begins today

Moto X online off-contract availability begins today

AT&T recently launched the Moto X and in addition to getting the regular white or black model, those considering a purchase could also do a bit of customizing by way of the Moto Maker setup. The problem though, Motorola initially launched the Moto Maker site without the ability to complete the purchase from end-to-end online. Going the Moto Maker route required a trip to an AT&T retail store to get a pin card.

Verizon Moto X available online first: in-store in coming weeks

The Motorola smartphone known as Moto X is not going to be available from Verizon in-store for a while - "in the comping weeks" they're suggesting today. Meanwhile Verizon has let it be known that the device will be available online starting on the 29th of this month - you'll just have to sample its abilities in the rest of the DROID series in-store or through one of SlashGear's several hands-on experiences.

Moto X Skip dongle hands-on with Moto Maker custom phone

Moto X Skip dongle hands-on with Moto Maker custom phone

The Moto X is only showing up in AT&T stores today, but since we got our order in early through our Moto Maker walkthrough last week, we've had an early opportunity to try out the new Skip security dongle system. Effectively a wearable NFC tag, the Skip clips to your jacket, jeans, or purse, and - when tapped against the Moto X - bypasses its PIN code lock so that users can access the "touchless control" Google Now functionality straight away. There are a few other little surprises in the box, though, too, so read on for more.

Moto X arrives as Moto Maker opens its customization doors

Motorola's Moto X smartphone has gone up for sale, landing on store shelves at AT&T locations, while Motorola's own Moto Maker customization service has opened its doors. The 4.7-inch smartphone, which we reviewed earlier this month, is priced from $199.99 for the 16GB model, though if you head down to an AT&T store you shouldn't expect to walk away with anything other than a black or white version.

Qualcomm 800 floodgates open as Moto X loses its edge

Qualcomm 800 floodgates open as Moto X loses its edge

One of the most engaging bits of technology unveiled this year with the Motorola-made Moto X was Touchless Control, allowing users to say, "OK Google Now" to begin a query with the device. This service is always listening for the voice of the person with which it's tied, and can be activated even when the device is locked. Motorola (and their parent company Google) employed this service on the Moto X as well as all three of the new DROID devices released to Verizon this month - and it's more than likely headed to a wide variety of smartphones (and tablet) once Qualcomm has their way with the market this summer.
