New Motorola DROID models not made in the U.S.
0. phoneArena 23 Jul 2013, 14:27 posted on
Motorola made it a point of announcing that the upcoming Motorola Moto X would be manufactured in the U.S. The wholly owned Google subsidiary even ran a full page ad for the phone, highlighting that it will be the first phone designed, engineered and assembled in the USA; will that capture any additional sales for the Motorola Moto X once it is released? That remains to be seen...

And at least they're not trying to fool anyone with some "Designed in Illinois" tagline on the box.

Made is Asia? .
People nowadays can't admit that almost everything are made in China

I don't really understand why people care about where it's made. As long as it looks/performs the way it's supposed to, it could be made in someone's basement as I wouldn't care.

Try to think a little deeper. Otherwise, good point.

I used to work as a tech for Flextronics on the Verizon account. If they're making the Moto X device, I'll stay with my Galaxy S III. Good luck Moto lovers! You'll need it.

And thanks to the anonymity of the Internet, you need not fear a breach of NDA or libel suit!

Very sad that Verizon version won't be assembled here in the U.S. while the X phone is

This isn't the "Verizon version". Verizon will get its own Moto X. They weren't able to get the plant tooled for 4 different phones. Hey, I'm grateful they're assembling the one phone here.

So, would this "Moto X" be the next Nexus? I see no reason why LG would manufacture it when Google can have Moto make it. I'm a little unsure here...

C´mon, We don´t care if it is assembled in america, china or anywere else, this is a global economy, We just need good products, fair price and not slave condition work, other than that, who cares?!?!

But there's the rub... Something made in China could be made in near-slave conditions, whereas something made in Texas will not.

You are stupid
Made In USA = More job for our citizens
Mad in China = More slavery

You are stupid and didn´t get the point...
Motorola doesn´t make phone just to america and 98% of world population does not care if you get more or less jobs because of that.
