moto-x-2014-review-15I have always maintained the notion that unless something official is mentioned or revealed by a particular company or organization, anything and everything else would remain as rumors, plain and simple. Hence, it is with much trepidation that I bring you word from Motorola Mobility, who used Twitter as the communication medium of choice to inform Sprint customers that they will not be on the receiving end of the spanking new Moto X from Motorola, never mind the fact that the Moto X (2013) was offered by Sprint to the masses when the smartphone was released.

Is there a reason for this decision by Sprint to skip the Moto X (2014)? Perhaps the predecessor to this year’s model not supporting Sprint Spark might have something to do with it. Sprint Spark happens to be a tri-band LTE network that Sprint utilizes in order to deliver faster data speeds to its customers, and Sprint Spark would require a handset that is modified before it can work on the network. This particular technology, when infused, would let the smartphone “decide” just which of three LTE bands would be best used when it comes to a designated task.

AT&T customers need not fret, as pre-orders for the Motorola Moto X begun on Tuesday earlier this week.
