Update: Although all of the company’s tweets seemed to hint at Moto Maker expansion to India, unfortunately it’s not happening quite yet. Instead, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Motorola “Batwing” logo, the company is holding a create-your-own-Batwing contest that will score a few lucky winners their very own customized Moto X. However, a Moto Maker rollout to India is still nowhere to be seen. Folks interested in participating in the contest can head on over to this link for more information.
Original post – 6/14: While Motorola India is not being 100% direct about what they are going to announce on June 15th, they are making it pretty clear on their Twitter account. Drop me off in Vegas and I am willing to bet my cash on it; our fellow Indians will likely get a taste of Moto Maker on June 15th (or soon after).
Brief Moto Maker summary
If you have been living under a rock, Moto Maker is Motorola’s online tool for customizing and purchasing devices like the Moto X and Moto 360. It became a sensation in an industry where real hardware customization is pretty much non-existent.
With Moto Maker you can choose from multiple storage options, engravings, colors, and materials. You can even pay extra for your phone to be partly made of awesome materials like wood or leather.
Now, that we have refreshed your memory a bit, let’s get back on topic and talk about Moto Maker coming to India. So it turns out the Motorola India Twitter account has been pretty active the past few days. And they are especially fond of posting about “something” that will be announced on June 15th.
What is it? Well, just look at the tweets and be the judge of that.
