Jan 19: Lenovo-owned Motorola has lined up plans to establish a wider retail presence by opening 50 Moto hubs in Delhi. In the second phase of the plan, the company would set up Moto Hubs in over 100 cities across the country.
Company sources have been quoted as saying that the new move would help Motorola Mobility India make a giant leap in the retail market sector. Considering that two-thirds of the country’s smartphone users depend on retail stores to buy devices, the company has decided to establish Moto Hubs in such a way that one can engage, interact and purchase devices and services.
All Motorola devices including online exclusives such as Moto X4 smart phones and Moto Mods — magnetically attachable modules that transform the smartphone into a TV projector, a powerful speaker or a camera, will be available at the Moto Hub stores. Clip-on accessories that work with the Z- series of Motorola phones, and also accessories like on-ear and in-ear headphones, Moto shells and phone covers will also be sold at the Moto Hub stores.
With an aim to offer offline access to customers, the company has partnered Poorvika Mobiles across 43 cities in Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry and Karnataka and Big C and Lot Mobile stores across 55 cities in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana last month, a related report added.
The upcoming Moto Hubs to be established in Delhi in the first phase will be located at the popular consumer hangout areas. Currently, the company has 155 other service centers established throughout the country, not including the 18 service centers in Delhi.
