Motorola’s senior vice president Rick Osterloh revealed a few details about the company’s plans for 2014 during MWC earlier this year. This not only included the promise of a new smart watch, but also their ambitions to expand the Moto Maker to Europe in Q2.
While Motorola has yet to formally roll out the Moto Maker on the other side of the pond, major German retailer Phone House has now put up a product page for the Moto Maker-customized Moto X. According to the page, codes for customizing the handset will be available starting July 1st. Would-be Moto X owners will also be able to secure codes directly from any of the 110 brick-and-mortar Phone House locations.
There’s no word on what other German retailers (if any) will offer the Moto Maker-customized Moto X. Now that Germany is preparing to bring out Moto Maker support, it’s likely only a matter of time before the service comes to other major European countries such as the United Kingdom.
It might seem like an odd move to roll out Moto Maker support for the Moto X so late into the game, but remember that the Moto X+1 is likely still at least a few months away. Additionally, getting the Moto Maker ready now means that Motorola could potentially offer Moto Maker support for the X+1 internationally from day one.
