Motorola, however, did not give a definite timeline on reaching the 1,000 count.
"The next level of growth will come from the offline channel and the company does not want to be left out. The 1,000 hubs are our first milestone," Mathur said.
He said as per industry standards, two-third of sales come from offline channels, "while for us it is just reverse".
"Ideally, I think revenue from offline and e-commerce should be equal," Mathur said.
The company today opened 25 'Moto Hubs' in Kolkata.
All the hubs will house handsets, along with Motorola accessories like on-ear and in-ear headphones, Moto shells and covers.
The eastern region contributes 15 per cent of total smartphone retail sales, he added.
