Motorola's most awaited Wearable, the Moto 360, which had become the talk of the town even before its official release, now seems to have lived up to all its pre-launch hype. This fact is evident when we consider the fact that the Moto 360 was sold out in less than three hours in the United States (US), as soon as the device went up for sale on 6 September.
According to an official Google+ post by Motorola, the Moto 360 'smartwatch' is facing high demand in the United States, and the device is currently 'unavailable' to buy.
Motorola's latest announcement should cause potential heartbreaks among a large section of people wanting to lay their hands on the $250 smartwatch that supports with voice/gesture/touch controls.
