Motorola may be prepping to launch the Moto X around the globe

500,000 units in Q3. Of course, that is a misleading statistic given that the Moto X was only on the market for about 5 weeks during Q3; the main selling point of customization was limited to AT&T (and marketing for the Moto X didn't pick up until Moto Maker recently broke that exclusivity); and, the device was only available in North America. Point number 2 has been fixed, and now there is word that Motorola might be looking to change point number 3 as well.There has been a lot made recently about the report that the Moto X has only sold
Marcus Frost, Motorola's Senior Marketing Director for EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) told TechRadar said, "The reception of Moto X has been fantastic and we're continuously perusing opportunities in the EMEA region, so really watch this space." And, Motorola's Vice President for EMEA, Magnus Ahlqvist added to that by saying, "We are serious about Europe and we want to bring strong propositions to the market."
Of course, Ahlqvist's comment could just as easily be referring to the Moto G as the Moto X, but Frost is definitely talking about the X. No word on when this could happen, or if there would be plans to offer the Moto Maker customization internationally. As yet, Moto Maker has been U.S. only and hasn't even made it to Canada or Mexico where the Moto X is already on the market.

EU isn't exactly a developing country... it's almost insulting to be only saddled with a starter phone from Moto, I'll be interested to see if the x or similar makes it over here too.

Whatever phone you are trying to bring, please check that its coming with MAXX battery... I will close my eyes and buy it... But an amazing phone with only 2100mAh fixed battery, SORRY not for me, imho...

This is what I hate about technology: Moto X U.S only phone. We will be making another model for overseas that is a cheaper version. Moto G is the cheaper version of Moto X. Wait, what? Is this the international version or? Moto X preparing for world-wide launch. Wait, what? Confuses the crap out of me every month. THIS is what ruins their sales.

There's not much that should confuse you here. It's the same reason Apple sells both the 5s and 5c, or why Samsung has the Galaxy S4/Note 3 as well as the Galaxy Ace. The same goes here. The Moto X is the "premium" Moto device, and the Moto G is the lower-end option. One is for higher-end markets, one is for lower-end. Simple.

So it's simple that Motorola say they will launch a cheaper device which is like the Moto X for overseas customers because the Moto x is staying inside of the sates and then Motorola announce that the Moto G is a cheaper version of the Moto X but give no more details. That's simple is it? Because I'm seeing a bit of a predicament I can't help unless I spend half my day searching for answer which I don't have time for. One of which that is not provided here or anywhere I read about the Moto G
