Moto G is still coming to India in January
Motorola is all set to launch the Moto G in the last week of this month. The Moto G, which got a Google Play Edition twin earlier, was earlier slated for an early January launch, but the Times of India reports that Motorola has pushed this date to later in the month.
William Moss, director of corporate communication at Motorola Mobility, told the publication on the sidelines of CES last week that the phone will be priced competitively. “If you look at what the device offers, the kind of responsiveness and performance it has, Moto G will be competitive with its peers,” the report quoted him as saying.
Motorola, which is making a comeback to the Indian market after scaling down operations to a large extent in 2012, has tied up with distribution partners for the launch. “Right now our plan is to announce Moto G in India with a partner in the last week of January,” Steve Sinclair, VP, Global marketing at Motorola, told the paper.
The Moto G is certain to bring the fight to the likes of Micromax thanks to its aggressive pricing, but it has also received some rave reviews in the markets it has launched so far in. So come February, we could see Motorola become a factor in the Indian market once again. “Moto G is for people who want a device like Galaxy S4 or iPhone or even Moto X but either they don’t want to pay the high price for these devices or can’t afford them,” Sinclair added.
