Update 6th February 2: 15PM: 16GB variant of the Moto G sold out in less than one hour after it opened the orders again. But the 8GB version is still in stock. One of our readers (Akshay Mehta) said that Flipkart has sent him an email saying that the Moto G he ordered at noon wouldn’t be shipped until next Friday, February 14th.
Update 6th February 12:20 PM: Moto G is back on stock on Flipkart with all the launch day offers, as it promised. Flipkart says only limited stocks are available, so it might go out of stock soon.
Earlier: Motorola launched the most expected Moto G in India yesterday, in partnership with Flipkart starting at Rs. 12,499. Motorola announced that the Moto G would go on sale on Flipkart at 12 AM, February 6th. Flipkart started selling the 8GB version even before 12AM. When it opened the sales for the 16GB version, it sold out in less than an hour. It was out of stock even before people were about to checkout. Even the 8GB version sold out in a few hours.
According to a listing on Zauba Indian import/export website, about 14,800 units of the 8GB version and just 5,000 units of the 16GB version were imported. This might be the reason that 16GB version sold out soon.
The Moto G would be available for order again at 12PM today, said Flipkart on Twitter
Great response for #MotoG, thanks! Regrettably we ran out of stock, our apologies. The phone + great offers will be available by noon today.
