Motorola Moto X announcement set for August 1st with "No Stage. No Crowds."

0. phoneArena 19 Jul 2013, 15:37 posted on

We finally have an official date for the announcement of the hotly expected Motorola Moto X. Motorola has sent out press invites for a private event that will be held in New York City on August 1st. But, here's the interesting bit: this won't be a big public spectacle like we've seen for Samsung, Apple, and even Google Nexus device announcements. Instead, Motorola is promising "No Stage. No Crowds."...

Awful, but not as awful as this is starting to sound as a product with such a weak battery and just in general the entire Motorola lineup.

Well, who cares about googlerolla moto anyway? Last thing they showed us, was covered with a snake skin, a washing machine and other ugly things. Not to mention another row of icons.

It might be a worthwhile nexus 4 upgrade if they sell it on the google store.

How is anyone supposed to take your comment seriously when we can't even make out what you're referring to? Snakeskin? A washing machine? I'm thoroughly confused.

I'm very excited for the X phone. Love the fact that you can customize your own phone luster it's made in America not China. Will buy one when it launches. And I'll choose either fire red or a orange color.

Are you referring to the Moto X? Because it is made in America. That's one of the "big hooks" of the Moto X.

It's assembled in America, not made. Two different meanings.

Dude... What kind of bullsh!t are you talking about? I can refer you to a dozen sites that state the phone is "MADE IN AMERICA". And fyi... "If something is "made" somewhere or "assembled", it's the same thing.

hes right, in that the internal parts are probably made over sea since we don't have the plants here at the "moment"; but any part or assembly here in the us is a big help!

Yep. This guy is building exactly what you think he is. Designed by you. Assembled in the USA. pic.twitter.com/U9fhJRDmmM

So you mean to tell me that this picture Tweeted by @Motorola of a guy in their Texas facility BUILDING the Moto X is not in America?

Motorola's official statements say "assembled in the USA."

Assembled and made are two different things. The parts of the device can be made over seas, be shipped to the USA, and be assembled there.

That's better than "designed in California" used by Apple, at least it is assembled in the us, and find me another manufacturer who can say the same. Keep in mind that assembling is the only thing they can do, since the components are manufactured in Asia and US does not have the factories to build those high tech components anymore, so they have no chance. They did what they could, and it's still better than what the others do.

You don't get it. They are assembling the Moto X in the USA, that's true. But I can bet that most of the parts they are assembling together were manufactured over seas. There is a difference between "made" and "assembled."

You know moto is the only company going backwards they take forever making new phones everyones going quad but they sport duallies.. This new phone is only a fraction faster than the moto droid MAXX HD which sport a 1.5ghz dual core. I do admit build quality is there great antenna on my photon but man your making me go to HTC which is another great phone for build quality and better antenna like moto.. Not impressed

Exactly, they should put a quad core at least. i'm really excited about the moto x but the ultra is going to be a step behind the competition.

well, true that its running a dual core, but according to another post, they went with the dual core because its optimize for clear pixel. i personally dont mind, since my nexus running dual core feels slicker than my htc one
