It was rumored last week that Motorola would announce the Moto X smartphone today on July 11th. As it turns out, no announcement has been made. At this point in time it is not known exactly when Motorola plans on unveiling this device. Just today it was reported that the company has a $500 million marketing budget for this smartphone. It has also been said that Moto X will be available from all four major U.S. carriers, Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint to be precise. None of the mentioned carriers have issued a confirmation as yet.
It has also been said that Motorola has been able to limit the amount of bloatware carriers can install on Moto X. Carriers often pre-install a plethora of apps on devices before shipping them out to customers, those apps are collectively known as bloatware. This is one of the primary reasons why most Android users opt for custom ROMs, to rid their devices of unneeded applications. The Moto X smartphone will reportedly come with a host of customization options such as back panel engraving and multiple color choices. Motorola is expected to release Moto X this fall.
