If you fancy buying yourself the Moto X on Big Red, US wireless carrier Verizon announced on Monday that the handset will be available on its online store beginning 29 August for $199 on-contract. Granted, you won't be able to get the shiny colours that we found ourselves admiring within Moto Maker, being locked down to white and black for the time being - but both are still pretty nice choices. 

For in-store sales, Verizon didn't give a specific date of availability, except that it will be available within the coming weeks. For now, you'll have to stick with online orders. If you're a Verizon customer who's been anticipating the Moto X, we're sure you won't mind too much. 

The $199 on-contract price matches what we've seen from other carriers. AT&T was the first to make the handset available last Friday, offering the handset on-contract for $199 and a full retail price of the handset at $579. It's not clear if Verizon will offer the unlocked version too. 

We're still waiting on release dates for the Moto X on Sprint and T-Mobile. T-Mobile previously confirmed the Moto X won't be available in T-Mobile's American stores at launch, but will still be supported on the network. Luckily, the developer version of the Moto X appears to be launching in the near future.

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
