Motorola officially shuts shop in India, closes their Local Website
Motorola Mobility pulled out of India a while ago after they were acquired by Google, but it looks like they’ve made it official today by shutting down their Indian Website. Bummer.
If you visit Motorola’s local Indian website right now, you’ll see the message below, which states:
We are streamlining our business and support systems, and unfortunately, we’ll no longer have a dedicated website for India.
Your local support site will remain open well into the future, and we’ll continue to provide support for our existing products.
If you are interested in viewing our current products, you can still do so here.*
I guess this also means we wont see any more of their devices launched in the subcontinent either. If you’re an existing customer that have one of their phones, Motorola has stated that they will still support existing products, but this is bad news for the few fans of the brand here in India.
Strange though, that they would pull out of a market as huge as India. Too much competition from other Android OEMs? Or just Google trying to, as the website says, streamline operations?
