The information comes courtesy of a Motorola spokesperson in the UK and doesn't mean that the Motorola is abandoning Europe entirely. It's just that Motorola have other X-branded devices down the line, which will be making an appearance on the old continent.
According to said spokesperson the Moto X is just the first in a line of X-branded portfolio. There's talk that the company will introduce a cheaper variant next, but it's mostly guesswork at this point.
