U.S. Cellular is jumping on the bandwagon of Moto X news today by announcing its own pricing, availability and deals for the handset. Just as is the case with the other carriers, U.S. Cellular will have both the black and white Moto X in 16GB capacity for $199 on-contract (and an oddly-high $699 off-contract). The carrier is also offering a $75 "Switcher Bonus", which knocks the on-contract price to $124 for new activations.
Additionally, U.S. Cellular is actually putting the device up for pre-order today, letting you lock in your device while the other carriers simply have announcements up. Customers who pre-order will also get a Motorola Boom Bluetooth headset, valued at $59.99.
A specific launch date is not yet known, but latest leaks point to the last week of August.
