Motorola opening offline stores in India soon, claims 3 million Motos sold so far

While announcing the launch of its offline customer stores, Motorola has put speculations on sales figures to rest, revealing that it sold around 3 million Moto series phones in India till date. The news comes via a tweet sent out by the company’s Twitter account through which it has been posting updates about its press event in Bangalore.

The Moto G, X, and E as well as the 2014 versions of the first two handsets we’ve mentioned have been released in the country so far. Motorola’s press conference in Bangalore was being held to announce the launch of ‘customer experience zones’ in the city. It’s being said that more metros across India will soon be welcoming these service centers too.

By the looks of it, Motorola is getting ready for another shot at competing with rivals by setting up such zones seeing as poor customer care support is one of the major grievances voiced by people. Even Xiaomi which is enjoying a good run in India at present, witnesses its Facebook page being bombarded with complaints about after-sales services.

Of course, since Flipkart has exclusive rights over selling the Moto smartphones on these shores, you won’t be able to buy any of the handsets in the lineup from the customer experience zones. That’s a pity though, since the fastest way for those who want to grab a device after test driving it would be to purchase it then and there.

Still, Motorola doesn’t seem too disturbed by the idea of possibly losing a potential buyer because of this. It probably has to do with the fact that its phones offer such good value for money, people would still flock online to pick one up. After all, Flipkart has managed to push out 3 million Moto devices within 10 months.
