Verizon-exclusive Moto GamePad accessory now up for pre-order
Verizon-exclusive Moto GamePad
Although the Moto Z2 Force Edition will hit other major carriers in the US by mid-August, the Moto GamePad accessory is exclusively available via Verizon Wireless, next to the JBL SoundBoost 2 speaker mod in red.

Verizon Wireless was usually the exclusive carrier for Motorola flagships in the US, but now the situation has changed. The new Motorola flagship known as Z2 Force Edition is also on its way to AT&T, T-Mobile, and US Cellulars, all expected to add it to their portfolio by the end of next month. On the other hand, Verizon is now already taking pre-orders for not one, but two exclusive Moto mods.

The long-awaited Moto GamePad mod provides the following to mobile gamers: dual control sticks, action buttons, as well as a generous 8-hour battery life extension. Its companion as a Verizon exclusive is the red JBL SoundBoost 2, a speaker module that offers premium sound quality and a 10-hour increase in autonomy.

According to the official press release, those interested can already pre-order the Moto GamePad for a price of US$79.99 USD. Unfortunately, the details about the launch of its red speaker companion are not available yet. The other two Moto mods mentioned by the press release are the TurboPower battery pack and the 360 Camera. However, their prices and launch dates are not known yet.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
