Motorola’s new Moto X smartphone will be made available through Google’s official Play Store according to Twit.tv. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One X there will not be a special “Google Edition handset” variant of the Moto X. That said, with Motorola already being owned by Google the Moto X is more or less a native Google product coming with totally stock Android and all the relevant Google programs and apps such as Gmail, Maps, YouTube, Chrome and the Play Store.
Users of the Moto X will thus still be able to enjoy the software enhancements that the smartphone launched with such as active Display notifications UI, Moto Assist, and Moto Connect. The Moto X will cost $199.99 on a two year contract from major carriers like AT&T, Verizon and Sprint while the non-carrier/non-contract version will cost $699.99. The Moto X will be available only in North America and Latin America starting from late August and Early September. As of current there are no plans to sell the device anywhere else.
