Flipkart goes down as Moto E goes up on sale again

Flipkart’s website has gone down moments after the Moto E went on sale on the online retailer for the second time. Flipkart had announced that it had just 20,000 units of the Moto E that would go on sale at 11AM today. It seems the announcement led to people rushing to the site to book their unit.

This is not the first time that Flipkart’s site has crashed after a Moto phone went on sale. The same thing happened during the first wave of Moto E  sales earlier this month. Flipkart had crashed when the first time Moto G went on sale as well.

It is surprising that Flipkart wasn’t better prepared this time, considering it also announced yesterday the time when the second lot would go on sale. While it sounds good for Motorola that demand for its product brought down the entire site, it is likely to put off buyers.
