Motorola re-entered the Indian market last year, tying up with Flipkart to sell its devices exclusively through the retailer. That partnership has now come to a close, as Motorola announced that it would be making its products available on Airtel retail stores across the country along with two competing e-commerce sites, Amazon India and Snapdeal.
The first handset available through other channels is the Moto E 2015, which is sold in 3G and 4G configurations for ₹5,999 ($91) and ₹6,999 ($106) respectively. There's no mention as to when we'll see more recent devices like the Moto X Play available from other stores.
With 5.6 million smartphones sales since February 2014 — crossing over 2.6 million sales this year alone — the device manufacturer is certainly doing well in the country. Broader availability will serve to further the cause.
