Have Motorola and Sprint had a falling out? It has been revealed today the Motorola's new flagship, the Moto X, will not be available via Sprint, the third largest carrier in the United States. The handset went live through AT&T and T-Mobile today, with a Verizon variant due later in the month, but Sprint has been left out.

It is not that either company is late or the X will eventually arrive. No, Motorola confirmed on Twitter today that the device will simply not be available through Sprint. The Official Motorola Twitter account posted the following in reply to the question of whether the Moto X would land on Sprint.

"The new Moto X won't be available on the Sprint network. Thanks for checking in."

Cue groans of discontent from customers who wanted to get their hands on the Moto X on the network. We reached out to both sides but neither Motorola nor Sprint wanted to tell us why they would not be playing ball with each other on the new Moto X.

We'll keep you posted if there are any developments.
