Just returned from our little town's VZW authorized agent who works out of a crack-in-the-wall. Asked the kid about the Moto X. "What's that?" Oh, it's a new Motorola phone by Moto/Google, I said. "Haven't heard anything about it... Verizon hasn't told us about it...sorry!"
With that I thanked him, walked out, placed the rock back over the crack and enjoyed the rest of my lunch hour knowing I WON'T be getting my phone from them. Pity.
