Motorola schedules an event for February at the MWC 2014 (Mobile World Congress) after is success in India with the debut of its Moto G. Motorola is now owned by the Chinese manufacturer, Lenovo that was before owned by Google which in turn managed to bring out two near stock Android Smartphones, the Moto G made for emerging market and Moto X was specially made for the US.
Google sold Motorola Mobility to Lenovo for a price of $2.91 billion which the software giant acquired for $12.5 billion back in 2012. Since the company was purchased by Google, it’s been slow with hardware rollouts, releasing only five major phone models in the last year and there was not much profit to both the companies (Google and Motorola). CEO Dennis Woodside will be at the event to provide an update on Motorola’s business, as well as other future plans or the acquisition by Lenovo. Moto says that more details will be revealed as we get closer to Feb. 25.
We need to wait till the 25th of this month to know what Motorola has packed for the event and we should be surprised if it comes up with any launches. Earlier we saw the Motorola coming back to Indian with its Moto G running on Android Operating System with the 16 GB variant priced at Rs. 13,999 and the 8 GB version priced at Rs. 12,499. We can also expect Motorola to bring its flagship, Moto X to the Indian market after its success with the Moto G.
