Verizon might have been ridiculously late to the party with the HTC One, but it will apparently make sure the same thing doesn’t happen with Motorola’s new hero phone. The carrier on Monday confirmed on its Twitter account that Motorola’s new Moto X smartphone will be available online beginning this Thursday, August 29th, starting at $199.99 with a two-year contract. The phone will not immediately be available in Verizon Wireless stores, however, and the carrier would only say that Motorola’s new smartphone will hit store shelves “in the coming weeks.” The Motorola Moto X first launched on AT&T last week and in our review, we called it the best mass-market Android phone we had ever used.
