Motorola recently posted on Twitter an image of a worker on an assembly line for the highly-anticipated Moto X. Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has previously confirmed the Moto X will be the first smartphone completely assembled in the U.S. at a 2,000-employee factory in Fort Worth, Texas. The Android handset is expected to debut in August with pricing of $650 without a contract.
What Else You Need To Know
- Motorola has said the Moto X will be smarter than others using sensors that will make the device "contextually aware."
- The 480,000-square-foot facility in Texas was previously used to manufacture Nokia phones.
- Motorola lost $342 million in the second quarter of 2013, according to an announcement by parent Google.
Even if the Moto X outsells every other phone on the market, Motorola is still spending money on pushing its other phones, all of which aren’t doing very well in today’s cut-throat market.- Emil Protalinski, The Next Web
