    Sadly this is a redundant question, as per the sentence a few lines above:
    Since the Moto X is not being launched in the UK

    I wouldn't buy it anyway, since you say it's made in the U.S.

    i really dont understand why Moto decided not to sell this handset globally. If it was released in the UK i wouldnt even look at the price, i would just buy it.

    I suspect it will be down to the radio bands it supports since the Americans use a different 4G spectrum to the rest of the world.
    Though looking at the wiki there is already 5 different radio editions with the brazil edition being the only one with a decent number of lte bands

    Yeah suppose you're right. Guess I'll just have to hope they make more versions for their next handset and release one in the UK. The Moto G has largely been a success right?

    Not being available in the UK will have more to do with the custom build than the radio spectrum supported. All handsets are custom made in the US, so I'm sure they are ery limited with capacity. If they sell in additional markets, they increase their demand massively, which they probably can't cope with at the moment. Add in the additional time and cost for delivery, and you have an incredibly expensive handset. Sure there are some like Biscuit that will buy it anyway, but how big is that market? Large enough to make it worth launching in the UK? I doubt it.

    By custom build do you mean the coloured shells? I only ask because I'm wondering if I'm missing something. Fitting different radio circuits into the same case is a potential issue at a design level, different coloured casing can easily be an automated procedure with the same internal design.
    Capacity is a valid shout though, moto did make this handset entirely us design and build, went for the principle points, so I guess they don't want to outstretch.
    I would love to know the honest reason,market or technological.

    Yes, by custom I mean the casing. But if they only intended releasing it in the US, there would be no need to install a radio that has world wide capability, it would just be more to test and more expense. I very much doubt Moto could manufacture international versions of the Moto-X if they wanted to. I would just suggest they don't want to for whatever reason.

    They may in the future, but they might need to build a European wide version, along with a European based build centre.
