Moto X budget model “DVX” appears at FCC

It is inevitable - it is Moto X's destiny. Here we're seeing - again - the likes of the low-cost iteration of what Motorola presented earlier this year with the Moto X. This model has appeared more than once in leaked casing photos in a variety of colors and is now - for the second time - being called the Motorola DVX. This version is said to bring on many of the features of the Moto X in a model that'll cost downwards of $200 USD off-contract.

Moto X budget model tipped for off-contract dominance

Moto X budget model tipped for off-contract dominance

When the original Moto X was introduced - or when it was ramping up towards its first full reveal, that is - the tech press suggested that it might be offered to the public at a price that would compete with the likes of the LG-made Nexus 4. That did not happen. The on-contract version of the Moto X in its smallest form did appear at a price competitive with the then-in-stock Nexus 4, but given the price was up against a contract-free device, the Moto X remained in its own category.

DROID Ultra Limited Edition official, complete with red racing stripe

As we saw in a very early rendering of the newest DROID family devices, there's a Limited Edition of the DROID Ultra out there in the wild. This device has appeared for the first time in "real life", as it were, this week on eBay, some collectors - or employees, more than likely - have taken their units to the auction site to earn a quick buck while they keep to whatever devices they'd rather carry in their pocket. We must assume this means they've all decided to work with a custom-built Moto X, of course.

Moto X launches for T-Mobile via Motorola’s website

Late last month, a screenshot surfaced indicating that the Moto X would only be available to T-Mobile customers from the Google Play Store, something that followed a tweet by the carrier's John Legere stating the Moto X would be available this month with a hint at JUMP, both of which followed a press release stating it would first be available via Motorola.com. Questions have been finally laid to rest, however, with today's availability announcement.
