Motorola have announced that the new Moto X will be available in selected retailers from 15 December 2014. Given the delays we’ve seen on other Motorola products reaching shelves this year, we’ll believe that when we see it, but at least we’ve got something a little bit more concrete than “soon”.
Although there’s a 32GB model available elsewhere, Australia will only receive the 16GB version of the Moto X, which will be available in black resin finish, or a wood finish back panel, will enter the market at $749 for the black resin version, and $789 for the wood finish.
We’ve asked Motorola to confirm which selected retailers will actually be carrying the Moto X come next week, but if the last version is anything to go by, then retailers like JB HiFi and The Good Guys seem like likely candidates. One thing we do know is the Moto X won’t be available via carriers, so an outright purchase will be the only option.
