Motorola Moto X (2014) available to pre-order September 16

Motorola has announced that the Motorola Moto X (2014) will be available to pre-order from September 16 – that’s tomorrow.

In a US-focused blog post, Motorola revealed that two versions of the second generation Moto X would be available to pre-order on the 16th. One would be the Moto X for AT&T, a US contact version.

The other should be of far more interest to a global audience – the Moto X Pure Edition that we revealed on Friday. This SIM-free phone will offer a near-stock Android experience and an unlockable boot loader for all you Android customisation fans.

This will set you back $499.99, or around £308.

There’s no news on a global launch, but presumably you’ll be able to order this Pure Edition from outside of the US, provided you’re willing to pay the shipping costs.

In addition to the Motorola Moto X (2014), you’ll also be able to order the Moto Hint – the company’s innovative Bluetooth earbud, for $149.99 (£92). There’s also the Motorola Turbo Charger, which gives Moto phones eight hours of charge in just 15 minutes, for $34.99 (£21).

The final piece of good news is that the Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch is back after a period of unavailability. It’ll be back in stock in the US from Tuesday, though the company warns that “you’ll want to hurry as quantities will be limited.”

Motorola also claims that there’ll be more news on regional availability soon, and even encourages those in the UK, Germany,  and France to have a go at designing their own Moto X via the Moto Maker tool in advance of the handset’s availability.
