Verizon Wireless is now selling Motorola's flagship handset, the Moto X.

Verizon announced recently that the Moto X would be launching on August 29, and the company has made good on that promise. If consumers head over to the carrier's site today, they can order the Moto X for $200 with a two-year contract. A contract-free option is available for $600.

The Moto X's appearance on Verizon's site comes about a week after that carrier's chief competitor, AT&T, started selling the handset. Like Verizon, AT&T is selling the Moto X for $200 with a two-year agreement . Sprint and U.S. Cellular will also be getting the Moto X.

The Moto X stands as Motorola's flagship smartphone, boasting a 4.7-inch 1,280x720 AMOLED display and 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm S4 Pro processor. The smartphone comes with 16GB or 32GB of storage and a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera to complement its 2-megapixel front-facing lens.
