Well, this is a real bummer. Motorola is going to launch a Stars Wars Moto Style Mod to commemorate the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie. It looks very cool and reminds me of Samsung’s limited edition, themed Galaxy phones, but at a small fraction of the price. The Mod will only cost ¥129 ($19.50 USD) and is just like what Motorola and Lenovo did a few months ago with their Transformers: The Last Knight Mods.
So why is it a bummer? The Mod will only be available in China and in limited numbers, and there’s no indication of broader availability. If you really want one, you’ll either need to travel to China or try to find a way to import one. The Mod will launch within the next few weeks and it’s a real shame that China is the sole beneficiary of such a cool, limited edition and inexpensive product. Why on earth isn’t this launching worldwide for the holidays? Bah Humbug!
