Just a couple days ago we wrote an article commending Motorola for not botching the release of the 2014 Moto X like they had the previous generation. But it appears we may have jumped the gun.
According to Droid-Life founder Kellex, he received an email to address a delay in his Moto X shipment and he is not alone. The email says that Motorola is, “getting a large number of orders causing some delays.” Exactly what is causing this delay, and why it appears to be affecting a large number of people, we have no idea. But that’s not all.
On Motorola’s website, there isn’t even an option for some people to backorder a 32GB model of the new Moto X. Instead, they are being told to downsize to 16GB. Ouch.
We really wanted Motorola to get the whole release process down this time. The Moto X is the phone to beat this year, hardware and software included. But if you can’t even buy the darn thing, what good does that do anyone? Hopefully Motorola figures this out before too long.
