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.

Nexus 5 could be the LG D820, to sport Snapdragon 800, 5-inch display

As the dust of IFA slowly settles down, we turn our attention to something that passed us by rather quickly: the appearance of what is allegedly the Nexus 5. Keen observers noted in Google's Android 4.4 KitKat video what seems to be a Nexus smartphone featuring a rear design that has not yet been seen.

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.

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.
