Flipkart has sold more than three million Motorola handsets in the last 10 months in India and almost 50 per cent of the buyers were from tier and tier 2 cities.
Michael Adnani, vice president, Flipkart said to The Mobile Indian, “We have sold 3 million Motorola smartphones in last 10 months in India. Out of which 1.5 million handsets were sold in in small towns and cities across India.”
Amit Boni, head of operations, Motorola India said, “India is a very important market for us and our aim is to bring product in quick succession to international launch or in some cases like Moto E first in India.”
He further added, “We will be launching around 10 Motorola experience centers in India in 2015. Bangalore will be the first city to get it in March (this year). These centers will act as experience zones and service centers for our customers.”
Motorola has also been experimenting with a mobile service center in Delhi, which is a service center on wheels and aims to provide services instantaneously. Nothing much has been shared about it but most likely mobile service centers will make it presence felt in the other metros in due course of time.
Motorola was recently acquired by China’s Lenovo, and talking about the way forward Boni said, “Both Lenovo and Motorola branded handsets will co-exist in the market and they are not competing with each other.”
