    It was announced very early that ATT had worked out a "deal" on the Moto X maybe this is the deal. Just conjecture of course but we have "leaked" release dates for VZW and US Cellular, TMobile's version just passed the FCC but if memory serves, the ATT version was first through the FCC. Maybe they get the same phone, but get to launch almost a month early.

    Announcement event. Rumor of possible release day also but you shouldn't hold your breath on that one.

    I imagine all us carrier release dates will be announced, except Verizon, which won't even be mentioned.

    Agreed, I blame AntimonyER as well if that does happen. In that case, I will send an army of these guys after him. :dalek: :dalek: :dalek: :dalek: :dalek: :dalek: :dalek:

    I totally did not know this thread existed until now. I need to get out more.

    My interest in this device is growing and I am getting antsy waiting for it. The specs are kind of meh, but the proof will be in the pudding I guess. :)

    I wouldnt put any stock into that leaked roadmaps at all.... They have been wrong on both the new Droids and the HTC One..... The One is not coming out this thursday (1st) and they also pegged the new Droids to come out on the 8th... also not happening. I wouldnt be surprised if the X is announced on Thursday and either made available in full right away or at least available via Google Play right away with carriers getting it in next week or 2.... also depends on if the rumor is true that Carriers getting shipments in today

    Another rumor today that certain carries will start receiving shipments to sell the day of the announcement, black and white only.

    New rumor or rehash of last week's by blogs that don't work weekends or are always behind?

    And btw, laminated aluminum - laminated how and with what?

    That doesn't refer to the disassembled blow-up of phone.

    Laminated aluminum can be very cool.

    But food wrappers are often laminated aluminum foil, so "laminated aluminum" sounds great, suggests something but says nothing.

    Again.

    :eek:

    I wouldn't be opposed to that as I plan on white anyway. I just want something more sure.

    It was android and me. I was just lazy to copy and paste and still am :)

    And it very could be a rehash from the other day with different wording.

    Thanks EarlyMon, you da modMan. I there's just so much in the air and it would be nice for something more solid. At least the August 1st announcment is still solid. What that means, we shall soon see.

    I'd be head over heels if Google (er moto) tears a page out of Apple's book of tricks and sets the release date for all carriers 2 weeks or so after the event. Just give us the date and stick with it. I cant believe that Apple is the only one's who can get this right after all these years...So tired of Android events and then when it comes time to talk about a release and availability we either get the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th quarter crap or the End of Summer, beginning of Fall, etc nonsense. Just set a date and stick to it! I mean your Google, like the biggest search engine in the world...Use you muscle and start doing things right with your OS and products.

    I wouldn't worry about that. I has most certainly been stored in some repository for future spamming marketing campaign you have inadvertently opted into.:p
