Moto X sales disappoint

Motorola is set to announce the Moto G smartphone on Wednesday, but it looks like the device that it is going to borrow heavily from, the Moto X, continues to disappoint in sales — with just 500,000 sold in Q3 according to Strategy Analytics. Whilst that isn’t entirely surprising given the limited release of the device, with just the US getting the privilege, compared to several other leading Android phones, this is rather dysmal — with even Samsung’s disappointing 10 million Galaxy S4 sales leaving Motorola in the dust.

Of course the Moto X has been on sale a while, but the phone’s unique selling point was always the ability to customise the device through the Moto Maker website, but that was until yesterday exclusive to AT&T customers. Now Motorola has finally opened it up in hopes that Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile customers buy-in to the device.
