Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 2:00 pm

Consumers needing a cell phone or accessories on the run have a new option now that Motorola Inc. has rolled out a series of what the company calls “robotic stores.”

The vending machinelike stores unveiled Wednesday will carry about 30 products, initially including 12 phones and 18 accessories, said Bob Many, Motorola’s director of automated retailing.

The “Instantmoto” will go into 20 malls and airports nationwide as part of a pilot program. Chicago has three outlets operating, including one in the Macy’s store downtown.

The program will be expanded depending on its success, Many said.
