Here’s something I did not expect to see: the Motorola Moto X will only be made available to people inside of the Americas. All other customers will be left in the dark.
Google was being praised for keeping its devices in the US to be manufactured, however, that took a turn for the worse today when Motorola announced that it would also be limited to America (including North, Central and South America regions).
That news is not bad for a large portion, but awful for those in places such as Asia, Europe and Australia where Motorola has a big name.
Quite bizarre considering all of the hype this device has been getting. I know, we have covered it a fair bit. On top of that it is said to be the flagship device for the companies. Why you would limit a flagship device I have no idea.
It’s not all bad news though. Motorola did say that they would be creating another ‘similar’ devices for the other regions. These can be expected to be more of a budget version.
Moto X is the brand that we are most focused on. And there is more to come. You will see additional products within months… The experience of devices you can get for less than $200 is sub par right now. We want everyone to have access to affordable Smartphones.
We’ve done a lot of devices before… Now we’re going to do a few — very few. Every one of those devices is going to really matter for consumers.
As a reminder, the Moto X comes with a big 4.7-inch display, high pixel density screen with 300 ppi, 720 x 1280 high-resolution display, 10 megapixels high-resolution camera, plenty of RAM with 2048 MB RAM, NFC and fast 4G mobile data support.
