Motorola may be expanding Moto Maker to Europe, Latin America, and Illinois

Motorola may be expanding Moto Maker to Europe, Latin America, and Illinois
We know that Motorola has begun rolling out the Android 4.4.2 update to the Moto G in Europe; and, we know that Motorola is gearing up for a big announcement in Europe scheduled for this coming Tuesday. Now, we're getting some clues as to the nature of that announcement. A job listing from Motorola seems to point to the impending release of the Moto X full with Moto Maker customizations for the region.

It turns out that Motorola had posted a job listing on January 2nd looking for a "Program Manager Moto Maker" in the UK. Interestingly, the same day, Motorola also posted a listing looking for a Moto Maker Program Manager for Latin America - Brazil specifically - as well as the same job in Libertyville, Illinois. So, it seems quite likely that Motorola is preparing to expand the scope of Moto Maker and bring customized Moto X handsets to more regions, and expand capabilities in the U.S., which could mean another device on the way soon. 

The big question now is how much Motorola is going to charge for the Moto X (or whatever the customized device happens to be) in Europe. The company recently dropped the off-contract price again on the Moto X, which is now down to just $399. But, electronics tend to be more expensive in Europe, and especially the UK. 

We'll just have to wait until Tuesday to get the full story though.

In order to speak "idiotic European" you need something that's called education...ohh and a brain.

In response to Extradite - you are quite correct. Motorola had lost their way for a while, it seems now, especially with the Moto G offering so much for such a small price, that they have their mojo back. I think we'll be seeing a lot more people toting moto phones in the near future.

Confirmed moto X expansion beyond the USA also indicates they are now keen to have an overseas presence again. It's all quite positive really & should help move Moto up the ranks of % sales of Android phones

I doubt that motomaker will stay an X exclusive, once those factories are up & running, which will represent a serious monetary investment, you can expect motomaker type options for future phones too. This also indicates a serious intention to keep previously neglected markets up to date too.
