Just yesterday afternoon, we had heard a little rumor that Rogers in Canada would be selling the Moto X this weekend in select stores and in limited quantities. Well today that has been confirmed. The Moto X will cost $189 on a new 2-year contract with Rogers or $549 outright. Which is similar to the pricing here in the US. This also means that Rogers is the first carrier to sell the Moto X. Next week we should see it launching at AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, but I wouldn’t hold my breath on Verizon.
“The Moto X has begun to ship to select Rogers locations in limited quantities. If an existing customer is unable to locate a device, please direct them to log into the Rogers Reservation System to reserve a device and it will be delivered to the Rogers location of their choosing when it’s available. New customers can register for updates at www.rogers.com/motox. They’ll receive an email as soon as devices become available nationwide.”-Rogers
The Moto X is coming to Canada in the 16GB model, we are not sure if the 32GB model will be available up North yet or not. But the Moto X does pack a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED display, with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro which is built on Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing platform, along with 2GB of RAM, Android 4.2.2 and a 2200mAh battery. Which Motorola says you should be able to get a full day of battery out of it. Which translates to 24 hours of mixed usage. Sounds respectable to me. I don’t think any of us will actually use our phone for 24 hours straight. If you do, you may want the DROID Maxx instead.
So those of you up in Canada, you can head over to your nearest Rogers store and see if they have the Moto X in stock. Although it would probably be smart to call them ahead of time to be sure they do have the device. If you are able to grab one, let us know in the comments below what your thoughts are.
