Google-owned Motorola Mobility has announced it will start shipping the Moto X in Europe at the beginning of February.

The smartphone was launched in August in the U.S. Its first European destinations are France, the U.K. and Germany, where it will cost £380 ($620) or €399 without a contract. In comparison, the Google Nexus 5 costs from £299.

The LTE smartphone still has a 4.7-inch HD screen and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. It also has a 2-megapixel front camera and a 10-megapixel rear camera. There is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of integrated storage. Just like the U.S. version, it will respond to a number of different voice controls and gestures.

However, one thing that's missing in Europe is Moto Maker, which allows U.S. customers to place online orders for smartphones with customized cases.

Motorola has struggled to make the Moto X a success in the U.S. and has recently lowered the price to turn the tide.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
