Moto Maker exclusivity rumored to last only three days for AT&T for new devices

When Motorola unveiled the Moto X in August of 2013, they did so with the announcement that their customization tool, Moto Maker, would see an exclusive stretch on the Big Blue network, AT&T. It didn't take long before AT&T subscribers interested in the Moto X could start customizing new devices, but for anyone not on AT&T, the wait was very apparent. It would take three months before the exclusive branding would lift, but for anyone keeping an eye on the Moto X+1, it looks like the exclusive deal won't last nearly as long this time around.

Accoridng to  report from TK Tech News, the Moto Maker functionality is going to launch as an exclusive, but it won't be for as long as it was with the original Moto X. According to the report, which also calls the Moto X successor "the new Moto X," AT&T's exclusivity with Moto Maker will only last for three days. After that, it is said to be opening up for Verizon-based subscribers -- but there is no mention of any T-Mobile or Sprint customization options.

Rumors have been swirling that Motorola and AT&T are gearing up to launch a Moto Maker deal on September 6, where customers will be able to pre-order the device, with customizations in tow, ahead of the device's launch later that month (which is rumored to be around September 17 for Verizon, September 28 for AT&T). If that is indeed the case, then it looks like Verizon customers could start customoizing their own new Moto Xs beginning September 9.

Do you plan on picking up a new Moto X, and customizing it through Moto Maker?
