Motorola sends out invites for London launch event

We have been let down before with this, but on the face of it, Motorola has finally decided to launch the Moto X handset in Europe.

We don't know for sure though. What we have is an invite to an event from the now Google-owned handset maker for 14 January. It says: 'Following the global launch of Moto G, we would like to invite you to join us on the next step of Motorola's journey as we welcome a new addition to the European family of products.'

So a product launch and judging by the accompanying photo, it will finally be the Moto X in Europe. That phone launched in the the US back in August last year, the first hardware with Google at the helm. The phone itself didn't exactly receive an ecstatic ovation, but one feature did made the grade. The ability to customise your phone with Moto Maker.

In essence, that's the phone's selling point, especially with the well-priced Moto G already on our shelves. Without the option to customise your Moto X, the phone really would be a washout. With that in mind, we would expect to see that come across the Atlantic too.

In other Motorola-related news (and thanks to that Google connection again), the Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade is currently rolling out to owners of the Moto G phone. It's the first non-Nexus phone to get the upgrade and with it, the £135 price tag of that phone is starting to look even more of a steal.

Check your handset to see if it's there yet. If not, there isn't long to wait.
