Google possibly spending upwards of $500 million marketing the Moto X in the U.S. and Europe


According to the Wall Street Journal, Google will spend upwards to $500 million on a Moto X marketing blitz.

Looks like Google will be firing on all cylinders getting the word out about the most customizable phone to date, The Moto X.  According to the Wall Street Journal Mountain View will be spending upwards of $500 million in advertising their Made in the USA flagship. The budget is said to cover international countries selling the device and here in the U.S.  That’s a lot of dough to throw around in advertising.

Some good news for us Android maniacs in the U.S. also. The Wall Street Journal explains the Moto X will be on all four major U.S. carriers, Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile some time this fall. Another tid bit of good news is reportedly Motorola has convinced the carriers to cut back on the bloatware shipped on the hardware.

This will be a lot of fun to watch unfold over the next few months. We’ve already seen some rumors and leaks, but $500 million should show us a hell of a lot more with quite a bit of repetition.

To those of you with an upgrade coming up, are you leaning towards the Galaxy S4, HTC One, Moto X or sit back and see what else may be coming to a carrier near you?
