Earlier this week, some people that preordered the new Moto X began receiving notifications that their device had shipped. Not everybody has been so fortunate, although.
Motorola has stated that it’s getting “a big quantity of orders inflicting some delays” for the new Moto X. A report from Droid-Life goes on to notice that Motorola is contacting some clients to say that their order gained’t ship for an additional two weeks, despite the fact that the order was positioned inside minutes of preorders opening up. To make up the delay, Moto is sending promo codes which are good for a $349 Moto X, $149 Moto M 8GB or $159 Moto M 16GB.
Unfortunately, that’s not the top of the issues. Some people that ordered a 32GB Moto X are being advised that the configuration that they selected is “backordered and unavailable for choice presently.” Motorola then asks that they select a 16GB mannequin as an alternative. Finally, some Moto Maker orders that included a white entrance are being backordered as much as 4 weeks.
So yeah, it seems to be just like the launch of the new Moto X is off to a bumpy begin. While it wouldn’t be a shock to listen to that some orders are being delayed because of the reputation of a extremely-anticipated new telephone, it appears unusual that models purchased proper when preorders went reside are being backordered. Motorola hasn’t defined precisely what’s inflicting all these delays, however hopefully Moto can get issues sorted out shortly or danger dropping gross sales to different new, excessive-finish smartphones which are coming to market.
Did you order a new Moto X? If so, did you get a cargo notification or was your system backordered?
