Moto X is no longer a rumor, Motorola’s CEO announced it in May. “Moto X will be built in a 500,000-square-foot facility outside of Fort Worth, Texas, that was previously used to build Nokia phones. Seventy percent of manufacturing will take place there, making this the first smartphone built within the United States, Woodside said. However, the processors are from Taiwan and the OLED screens are from Korea.” It’s surprising to see a CEO that reveals so many details about a new phone before it’s launched.
AdAge reports that Motorola will run a full-page ad “in the July 3 editions of The New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and Washington Post”. The ad announces the “first smartphone designed, engineered and assembled in the USA” and “the first smartphone that you can design yourself”.
