Earlier (May 23): As promised, Flipkart has resumed Moto E sales. The e-retailer has however warned that only a limited stock of 20,000 units is available, so you will have to hurry otherwise who knows how long this stock is going to last.
Originally introduced on May 13 in India, the Moto E is priced at INR 6,999 and comes with an impressive set of specifications. The phone was released on May 14 in the country via Flipkart but was sold out in just 17 hours. The e-retailer later started accepting reservations for the phone but even back-orders were closed after 24 hours. Moto E has since been out of stock at the website and is returning after almost a week.
Although the exact number of Moto E unit sales in the country is unknown at this point but according to the estimates from import data website Zauba.com, Flipkart has shipped over 1 lakh units of Moto E since the launch (over 50K as a part of the launch day sales and around the same number as the part of back-order sales). This is a pretty significant number for any smartphone to sell in just a matter of one week in India.
Moto E has been getting rave reviews from all over. It is a clear step-up from feature-phones and is the perfect device for any first-time smartphone buyer with a tight budget. The phone comes with 4.3-inch qHD display, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.4. It is powered by 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor and features 5MP rear camera, 1980 mAh battery, 3G, dual-SIM support, 4GB of internal storage and microSD card slot. The phone also includes usual connectivity options, Corning Gorilla Glass and splash-resistant nano-coating.
