So you’ve seen the new Moto X smartphone by Motorola, the first device launched since the $12.5b acquisition by Google. You’ve seen the 504 different combinations offered by the Moto Maker that makes the Moto X your Moto X. You’ve seen the videos showcasing the voice control offered by the Moto X, where commands start with a simple “Ok Google Now”. You’ve seen it, and in all likelihood you’ll want one.
But you can’t. Motorola will not be selling the Moto X outside of the American continent.
The Moto X, unfortunately, will not be available outside of the US, Canada and Latin American markets. Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside mentioned that the Moto X brand will be the company’s answer to HTC’s One and Samsung’s Galaxy series, and will be focusing on fewer products under the Moto X line.
For the Asian and international market, Motorola will be making a cheaper version of the Moto X, and will most likely not offer the myriad of customisation options that the Moto X currently enjoys. There goes the dream of owning a smartphone with a wooden cover, then.
