Moto G’s U.S. Launch Halted By Snow Storm


The $179 Moto G was scheduled to make its debut in the United States this month, but many of its early adopters are still waiting for their handset to arrive. Motorola has blamed the delivery delays on storm Dion, which is currently sweeping the nation, but the company is hoping to have handsets delivered by Christmas.“Our operations are still recovering from the storm’s impact while also trying to keep up with the incredible demand for Moto G,” Motorola said in an email to Android Central’s Phil Nickinson. “For these reasons, your phone order wasn’t shipped when we originally estimated.”

“We sincerely apologize for the delay and want you to know that your Moto G will ship by December 17th via a free upgrade to overnight delivery.”

Some customers have been given a December 14 shipping date; it appears individual estimates are based on customer location. But Motorola is clearly working hard to get them all delivered by Christmas, which will be reassuring to those who are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their new smartphone.
