Motorola CEO Talks About Their Flagship Phone – The Moto X – It Will Carry the Made in the USA Label

Posted by at 9:06 pm on May 29, 2013

In a discussion at the D11 Conference, Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside said the new mobile phone, called the Moto X, will be built in the United States.  We’re not talking about just a handful of units either — available this summer, every Moto X sold in the USA will be assembled just outside Fort Worth, Texas, making it the first smartphone ever assembled domestically. The facility that the new Moto X will be built in was once used to build Nokia phones.

Moto is looking to hire a number of new employees from other major manufacturers to build a new generation of mobile phones.

“We like to be the challenger,” Woodside said. “So we’re filling the company with people who want to transform the company into a winner.”

Motorola Mobility is owned by Google, but Woodside said that the company has no preferential treatment from its parent corp.
