Motorola teases device launch for Europe next week; what will it be?

Well here’s a surprise: with CES this week, and the MWC later in February, you’d think that smartphone makers had all the opportunities they needed to make any products announcements already nicely lined up for them. Instead of bringing its new gear to one of these shows, it looks like Motorola is striving to attract a little independent attention, and invitations the company’s currently inform us of a launch announcement in one week, on January 14. So, what do we have to look forward to?

As you can see in the invite above, Motorola talks about “a new edition” to its European lineup. That’s fueling rumors that we’re not necessarily talking about some phone that’s entirely new, but instead Motorola bringing an existing product to Europe – and top on the list of contenders is the Moto X.

We’re flashing back to November when we heard one Motorola employee comment about the company “continuously perusing opportunities in the EMEA region” and telling us to “really watch this space.” Could next Tuesday’s announcement be the ultimate culmination of that teaser?

For the moment, there’s still just a lot we don’t know. Even if this is the Moto X (and it could easily be something new altogether), would its touted customizations follow it across the pond, or might we see like what most of the US carriers got initially, with simply black and white options only?
