The U.S. exclusivity of the Moto X is one of of its very few downsides, but that’s something that might change in the near future.


At the launch of the Moto G, Marcus Frost, Motorola’s Senior Marketing Director for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, told TechRadar: “The reception of Moto X has been fantastic and we’re continuously perusing opportunities in the EMEA region, so really watch this space.” To add to the speculation-inducing statement of Frost, Motorola’s Vice President for EMEA, Magnus Ahlqvist, added: “We are serious about Europe and we want to bring strong propositions to the market.”

The wording was vague, but it does seem like the rumored 500,000 Moto X sales since launch (a good figure, considering the device is available only in the US) could drive Motorola to launch the handset in a few more countries, perhaps after the Moto G is made available in all its intended markets. More than a few folks have expressed disappointment at the fact that Motorola chose to keep its hero device in its home country, and for their sake, let’s hope a launch in Europe does happen, and that it brings along the customization that makes the Moto X such an attractive device, among other factors.
