Moto X U.S. Cellular

Following launches on AT&T and Verizon last month, the Moto X today made its way onto a third U.S. carrier. U.S. Cellular is now offering the 16GB Moto X through its online shop in both woven white and woven black color options. Pricing starts at $124.99 with a two-year contract and $75 switcher credit that's available to new line activations. Existing customers can upgrade to the Moto X for $199.99. If you'd prefer to see the Moto X in person before dropping your hard-earned dollars on one, U.S. Cellular says that the device will be available in stores starting Friday, Sept. 6.

The Moto X is Motorola's latest flagship smartphone, combining a 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED with Motorola's custom X8 Mobile Computing System (includes a 1.7GHz dual-core processor) and 10-megapixel ClearPixel rear camera. On the software side, the Moto X is powered by Android 4.2, and the unit also comes preloaded a few custom Motorola add-ons. Those include Touchless Controls, which allows a user to perform commands after simply saying "OK Google Now," and Active Display notifications that can quietly pulse alerts on the X's display.

While it's kind of a bummer that one of the Moto X's most notable features, its Moto Maker customization tool, is still only available to those folks on AT&T, it's still good to see Motorola's flagship launching on another major operator. Not only does that mean that more consumers have access to the Moto X, but it also helps to expand U.S. Cellular's lineup of major Android hardware.
