Moto X now available for reservation exclusively from Rogers

or talking to my mother while cleaning the apartment. Multitasking just got easier, with the new Moto X smartphone introduced today by Motorola. The Moto X is designed to be more responsive, more alert and provide the best of Google’s mobile services. Expanding our large selection of LTE-enabled Android smartphones, the Moto X will be exclusively available from Rogers this month.

Here are three Moto X features that will help make your life easier:

  1. You can control the Moto X with only your voice. No kidding. With Touchless Control, start by saying “OK Google Now.” Then, you can get directions, set an alarm or even ask it if you need to bring an umbrella with you and it will give you up-to-the-minute weather for your location. Did I mention you can do this without touching it at all? Awesome.
  2. Love taking pictures? Another great feature I would definitely use is the quick capture camera. Twist your wrist twice to open the camera application and take great action shots from the Toronto Blue Jays game. You can also touch the screen anywhere to get the shot you need.
  3. Minimize your “must check phone” cravings with Moto X’s Active Notifications feature, which showcases useful info as it comes in – right on the screen (even while it’s asleep!). No more staring at a blinking light that doesn’t actually tell you anything.

What about the blazing fast LTE speeds?

The Moto X is built to run on Rogers 2600 MHz LTE spectrum, the fastest wireless internet band available in Canada. Capable of delivering higher speeds than other LTE bands, customers with the Moto X will be able to download large files quickly or stream music with no buffering. Rogers has more LTE network deployed in the 2600 MHz spectrum band than any other carrier.

How do I get one?

Moto X will be available in black or white exclusively to Rogers Wireless customers this August for $189.99 on select two-year plans. Existing Rogers wireless customers can reserve theirs now on the Rogers Reservation System and new customers can sign up for updates on availability at

What do you think of the new Moto X? What would you ask Google Now?

UPDATE Aug. 23, 2013, 1:30 p.m.: You can now get your Moto X for $189.99 on select two-year agreements at your local Rogers retail location. Visit for more details on the device.

    Awww, I was holding out for this device for so many reasons. No 32gb, no customization, and 189.99 on a 2 yr? It’s great you guys are getting cutting edge devices but when you get the bottom model and charge a premium it hurts. Sorry :/

    Soo the states gets 18 colors to choose from and we get… black and white. Thanks Rogers! I love being mediocre.

    Will this phone be made in USA or China? I hear USA will get built in USA and Canada built in China. Also, price is too expensive.

    1. RogersNicolas

      Hi Ahmad, regarding manufacturing questions, I’d advise you to get in touch with Motorola (owned by Google). They’ll be able to assist.

    Will Rogers ever get the ability to use Moto Maker in the future? I would buy this phone in a heartbeat if I could customize it.

    1. RogersKatie

      Hi Purdy,
      Unfortunately, Motorola is not able to offer this service in Canada at this time but they’re hoping to expand this offering in the future.

      1. purdy44

        Do you know whether “in the future” means near future (the current Moto X device), or does it mean next year’s model or beyond?

      2. Nick

        Moto has a contract with I believe Verizon or one of the US carriers that makes the customization exclusive to them for not sure how long. Could be the initial 3 month period or could be 1 year..
        Still really bummed that Rogers always chooses the base models though. You can only ever get the premium models of iPhones but never get the option for larger hard drive on any other devices. That’s why I always upgrade, sell my Rogers phone and buy an unlocked phone from online.
        Really a shame.

    Are there any plans to offer customization via the Moto Maker website in the future?

    1. RogersKatie

      Hi Doug,
      Unfortunately, Motorola is not able to offer this service in Canada at this time but they do hope to expand the offering in the future.

    How much to just buy one from Rogers as I just upgraded a year ago to the Moto RAZR as no LTE in my town, now a year later LTE is in my area and I would like to buy this phone.
