Motorola is looking towards vending machines as the newest way to expand their retail reach. The Instantmoto robotic stores will carry 30 different products – initially 12 phones and 18 accessories. The pilot project of the stores will see them installed in 20 malls and airports in the States. There are already three operating in Chicago, including one in Macy’s downtown. You will be able to buy mid-range to high-end phones, including the Q or the Razr. You can buy the service plan at the same time, or you can buy without one.
