Motorola is holding an event on 14 January, Tuesday, in London, and rumours have appeared of a plausible Moto X launch in the United Kingdom, and possibly, Europe as well. This is good news for consumers in UK, as the Moto X has been exclusive to the United States so far since its launch in August.
There are 3 reasons as to why such an event is possible. Firstly, the invite sent out to major tech companies in Europe had the same picture as the invite sent out for the US launch in August. The invite also mentions that Motorola will “welcome a new addition to the European Motorola family of products”, which hints strongly to the Moto X, as the Moto G is already available in some parts of Europe.
Secondly, there has been a job listing on Motorola’s website for a Programme Manager for Moto Maker in UK. Moto Maker is an online site that allows consumers to design their own Moto X to their choice from dozens of options available. So far, the only Motorola phone that uses this service is the Moto X, which might explain the need for a programme manager in UK if the Moto X is indeed launching there. The job is described as being “responsible for national and international integration of Moto Maker point-of-sale & online integration”.
Lastly, during TechnoBuffalo’s interview with 2 of Motorola’s executives during the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this week, a Motorola spokesman did not deny the possibility of the Moto X launching in Europe, leaving the option open. Instead he said,
We do have an announcement coming up on the 14th. We haven’t said what’s for — I’ll leave you to speculate.
So, there might be a possibility of a Moto X launch on the 14th of January, and possibly the rest of the world soon after. Rejoice Europeans! Your wait is over.
