Motorola Coming Back To India With Moto G & Moto X!
It was soon after Motorola was bought by Google that they uprooted themselves from India completely, breaking a lot of hearts in the process. According to them, they wanted to streamline the company and the way the company was struggling, it was unavoidable.
The move however looked pretty rigid and it seemed that we won’t be hearing the sound of ‘Hello Moto’ back in India.
There seems to be a change in the wind it seems.
It is certain the Moto G will be launched globally and with it in India as well on 13th Nov. The phone would be its first after a few years that is being launched in India.
One can visit the facebook post by Motorola that personally invites Indians to the live feed on 13th in Brazil on Moto-G. This surely points to the fact that there is something in store for Indians from Motorola!
According to gizbot, Motorola won’t be launching the Moto G only but it would also announce Moto X internationally on that day. If that turns out to be true, then it would indeed be a great news for Motorola fans in India and would definitely signify a shift in thought in the company.
It will also be a surprising move as initially Motorola had no plans to launch the phone anywhere except US. Even Europe was not supposed to have the phone.
Gizbot apparently talked to the customer care of Motorola and they said that Motorola is working double time to launch the phone worldwide. While no price was placed on the phone it would be safe to assume that it would not be a cheap phone in any way.
Also, I do not think we will have that many options of customization as are presented to US people.
As for Moto G, it is almost certain that the phone is being launched in a few days’ time and it should be a sub-20K phone in India.
It is here that it would create the biggest dent and they would not want to place it too close to Nexus 5 as well.
With the close launch of Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 10, and now Moto G and possibly Moto X, I can’t help but feel that Google is finally realizing the importance of India in the next billion they want to target. What is your take?
Is it a Motorola decision or a Google decision to come back to India?
