Motorola’s flagship smartphone, the Moto X, has just been given a makeover on the outside, while the innards would more or less remain the same. Behold, the College Collection for the Moto X which will comprise of a series of customization options so that consumers are able to show off just how proud they are of their alma mater, even though it is done via taking your smartphone out from your pocket. Its College Collection launch will see the inclusion of nine new back colors as well as a trio of new accent colors to MotoMaker, so that potential buyers will be able to pick their university’s perfect color combo.
Just over a week back T-Mobile started conducting a soak test of Android 4.4.2 for its Moto X. The process involves rolling out the new firmware update to a select few people who then try out said update to ensure that no bugs or issues remain to be fixed before the firmware is finally rolled out to the public. Once an update reaches the soak test step, its public release is expected within a couple of weeks. That’s exactly the timeline this particular update has followed, today the T-Mobile Moto X Android 4.4.2 update has finally been released.
Last we heard, Android 4.4.2 is said to be making its way onto T-Mobile’s Moto X in the near future, and if you’re wondering how soon is that, perhaps the next couple of days could be it. This new rumor is according to an anonymous US Cellular representative who claims that the carrier is ready to push out Android 4.4.2 KitKit to its own Moto X handsets in the US. Of course given that this roll out is for US Cellular customers only, we can’t speak for the availability of Android 4.4.2 KitKat for other carriers, but presumably they should be rolling out, at least that’s what the rumors seem to suggest.
Those of you who own a US Cellular Moto X, you will be able to check for the updates by going to your phone’s Settings, About Device, and Check for Updates to scan manually to see if there are any updates to be had. Of course we expect the updates will be rolled out in phases so even if your friend gets theirs first, don’t worry as we expect that yours should not be too far behind. In any case we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes peeled for the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the US Cellular Moto X, but in the meantime take it with a grain of salt for now and try not to get your hopes up just yet.

Only recently we reported that a Sprint subscriber had received the Moto X Android 4.4.2 update even though the carrier is yet to publicly roll out said firmware. Moto X users in the U.S. are anxiously waiting on their carriers to roll out the latest iteration of KitKat, but so far there’s no official word as to when said firmware is going to be released. It appears that T-Mobile might be gearing up to do so in the near future, as the carrier has started reaching out to people, inviting them to take part in a “soak test” for an upcoming firmware update.

Android 4.4 KitKat update might have arrived in record time for the Moto X back when it was first released, but Motorola’s flagship smartphone was overshadowed by its younger sibling which became the first of the company’s mobile devices to receive the Android 4.4.2 update. Since then many Moto X owners have wondered aloud when they’ll get the update on their device as well. Recently one Verizon Moto X owner received the update on their device, and now it has popped up on a Sprint subscriber’s Moto X.
Merely a few weeks after it went on sale during the holiday shopping season, Motorola has once again decided to slash the price of the Moto X smartphone, originally released back in August 2013. At first the off contract price was $549, but earlier this month the company permanently dropped it to $399. Through this new sale, the company is offering an additional $100 off, meaning that this smartphone can be purchased on any carrier of the customer’s choice, off contract, for just $299. The only catch is that customers must make the purchase between 3 to 4 PM ET on Monday, January 27th.
