Motorola Returns to China Today With the Moto X – Moto X Pro and Others Coming Soon

Motorola officially made its return to China this morning in a keynote that was filled with dancing, fist pumping, and excitement. The event kicked off the launch of their whole product line-up in an area of the world that Motorola hasn’t been for some time.
