Bullit has signed an exclusive partnership with the US-based smartphone company to develop and market Moto-branded shatterproof and drop-proof devices. The shatterproof Moto smartphones are slated to launch later this year. Let’s take a look at the details around the Bullit-Motorola licensing partnership.
