As promised, Moto X Force has been made available at physical brick-and-motor stores in India.
Motorola has confirmed that the new flagship phone can now be bought at Poorvika Mobile World, Spice HotSpot, Vijay Sales and Tata-owned Croma retail chains, numbering around 400, across 15 cities with easy EMI options on select bank credit cards.
The company has even opened the dedicated store-locator web-page to help buyers find the nearest shop. Interested readers can check HERE.
For those unaware, Moto X Force (aka Moto Droid 2 in America) is touted as the world's first shatter-proof smartphone. It boasts company's proprietary ShatterShield display technology. It is made up of five layers -- Aluminium chassis to form the rigid core, flexible AMOLED screen; two layered touchscreen panels; interior lens to provide clear visibility of contents and exterior lens to provide additional protection, so that the phone's display will be capable to absorb shock from the impact and is guaranteed not to shatter, says the company.

On the rear-side (of base model), it comes covered with ballistic nylon (metalised glass fiber) that offers a distinctive design while providing ultimate durability. And also, underneath this coating, Moto X Force features Kevlar, a material that is known to be five times stronger than steel.
Moto X Force comes in two variants — 32GB and 64GB — for Rs 49,999 and Rs 53,999, respectively. It will be available in two colour variants — white soft rubber grip and grey ballistic nylon.
Besides retail shops, Moto X Force can be ordered online on Flipkart, Amazon India and Snapdeal as well.
