After Google acquired Motorola, the company is going through a series of changes / renovations. Many of the unprofitable office will be shut down, this includes the presence of Motorola in India. And as expected, as of now Motorola is officially ‘shut-down’ in India.

If you happen to visit the Motorola India website (http://www.motorola.com/sites/clp/in-en/index_IN-EN.html) you will be greeted by an important message that clearly mentions the reason. It is highly unlikely that Motorola will enter the Indian markets again. For now they are not interested in low cost handsets that really does well in  India, but instead will concentrate more on high end smartphones.

The local support site https://motorola-mobility-en-in.custhelp.com/app/home will still be functional and users will get support for existing products. After this move the Indian users will definitely keep away from this brand.

motorola shuts shop in india

The Motorola models that are currently available in the markets will continue getting the support but any new models launched by Motorola / Google will most likely not make it into the Indian markets.

  1. Its very bad news, I am using Motorola mobiles products for 5 years its very good products.

  2. I am very sad to see Motorola closing their doors for India. I am using Motorola defy user and its build quality is much better than LG. The products were rightly priced but their distribution channel was not good. Hope to see them back in next 5 years.

  3. Really really sad news. Moto products were, are so good and different from other brands. Will really miss them.

  4. I think, it’s a good news. I hope lg should do the same in future. Because nobody cares about them. LG nexus 4 priced more than 30,000 in India which is pathetic.

    1. Lg and Motorola are different Company and you can put them together in one basket and Nexus is Lg product you can blame Motorola for that.

    2. Motorola is pioneer.
      They first introduced the world with Portable Cellular Phone.
      According to me Motorola still the Best

    1. A very bad news without any competition and survival in the India market they just packed their bags. 🙁
