Motorola’s recently unveiled next-generation Moto X smartphone is already available to order through other carriers such as AT&T, but Motorola today said the device won’t be available on Sprint. The news, which comes as a surprise considering the last-generation Moto X was available through the carrier, comes from a response to a customer on Motorola’s official Twitter account:

There’s no word from either company on the reason behind the decision, but Verizon is expected to launch the device later this month while Motorola is already selling AT&T and T-Mobile compatible versions through its website. We’ll update with more if either company provides more information.
