I had really high hopes that the Moto X would be a total game-changer for the world of Android smartphones, just like how the whole Google Nexus family of devices has changed the mobile landscape. However, Motorola has made it clear that they’re not trying to compete on specs, but rather they want to provide a better user experience for everyone. And now you can find out for yourself whether it really is better.

Rogers Wireless started selling the Moto X “in limited quantities” to select Canadians last week, but now the Moto X has been made available officially through their online store. You don’t get the option for different colors and customizations, though, as Rogers is only selling the Moto X in your choice of black or white. The price has been set at $189.99 with a two-year contract or $549.99 as an outright purchase.

Our neighbors to the south can also bathe in the new Moto-flavored goodness, because AT&T has started selling the Moto X as well. Just like Rogers, only the black and white versions of the handset are currently being offered, but unlike Rogers, the Moto Maker customization will become available to American customers “soon.” You know, whenever “soon” might be. The Moto X is $199.99 on a two-year contract, $449.99 on a one-year contract or $579.99 straight up. There’s also the AT&T Next program with $27 monthly payments for 20 months.

As a quick refresher, the Moto X comes equipped with a 4.7-inch 720p HD AMOLED display, 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU (Krait) backed with the Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System, 2GB of RAM, a 10MP “ClearPixel” camera on the back and either 16GB or 32GB of storage.
