Lenovo has been taking the rapidly budding Indian market very seriously, what with the recent “Make in India” announcements and a plethora of decent budget smartphones. Well, they are about to take things even further and this time with Motorola. Reportedly, Motorola will start selling its smartphones in retail stores across India pretty soon.
The report comes from the folks at Economic Times, who spoke to the Chairman of the Motorola Mobility Operations Board, Chen Xudong. According to Chen, “Motorola will go offline to make sure that more people buy Motorola products from brick-and-mortar stores in India”.
Lenovo owned Motorola re-entered the Indian market with great success and they have been growing ever since. The decision to bring the Motorola smartphones to brick and mortar stores will surely help the company get even better sales online. While the online retail industry has boomed, there are people who still prefer buying smartphones from physical stores because they want to have a good look at the device.
Motorola will use Lenovo’s great distribution in physical stores to make inroads in retail stores across India. This news comes after Xiaomi recently announced that it will soon start selling its smartphones in the retail stores across India. This is a great decision from Motorola, considering I personally know people who want to buy a Moto smartphone but refrain from doing so because they are not available on physical stores.
Well, this is certainly good news for people who want to buy a Moto smartphone from the retail stores. We will surely let you know once Motorola starts selling smartphones through offline stores.
