Does it make a difference? I have a Nexus 4 which many flame for having no removable battery but it doesn't bother me. I wouldn't get one of those ugly expandable batteries that add size and weight to a device and if your concerns are battery failure then firstly if it's on contract or under warranty then it'll be replaced or fixed but once the warranty is up then your free to open the back and fit one yourself.
No big deal either way...

With the customizable backs that are being offered it might hint to being able to pull the battery... unless you get the one back and that is it

That's my guess as well.  I'm also guessing that Motorola will sell the backs in the various colors and possibly even materials (i.e. Ceramic, metal, fabric).  It makes great business sense to make these swappable.

Looks like my guess was wrong, according to @evleaks[/color] the battery will be a 2200 mAh non-removable.

2200mAh sounds ok to me. All depends on what you will use the device for. My Rezound I got in 2011 only has a 1620mAh battery and with my talking, snapping photos, web and some emails I can get almost 2 days between charges. Still having a removable battery on the X would be nice along with removable storage for all those photos.

Pretty much confirmed by Android Police that it doesn't have external storage, there will be 16 & 32 Gigabite variants though...

With cloud services is it really that important to have lots of storage. 16 gigs is plenty for me.

Yeah, 2200 mAh for any other phone may seem small.  But Motorola has always been good with battery life.  I'm wondering if Motorola will throw in SmartActions.

I think if I do get a Moto X I'll be going for the 32GB. I currently own a Nexus 4 which is 16GB and whilst I currently have about 6GB of storage remaining that's only because I don't put too much on it and clean the storage it every now and then... If you don't play games, your not going to root and keep nandroid backups, your happy using Play Music and don't watch movies on your phone you'll probably be okay with the 16GB...
