The Droid Turbo is one of this year's best Android phones, and although we had long suspected that we wouldn't get it here in the UK, we still held out hope that maybe, just maybe, Motorola would change its mind.
Those hopes have now been dashed with Motorola France revealing on Twitter that the Droid Turbo won't be launched in any European markets.
It's a real shame as the Droid Turbo is an excellent Android smartphone with a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 5.2-inch QHD screen and a 21-megapixel rear camera.
But it's also an exclusive to the Verizon network in the US (though it is also sold as the Moto Maxx in certain Central and South American countries). Our hopes for a similar situation in Europe is now off the cards, so all we can do is watch enviously from across the Atlantic.
- Maybe you should opt for Motorola''s flagship Moto X instead
