Motorola is going to launch a phone this year called the “Moto X”. One of the key selling points of the device is that it’ll be “designed by you“. Now what the hell does that even mean? Thanks to Joanna Stern, former writer for The Verge, now employed by ABC News, here’s what you need to know.
Moto X: Specs, News, Features, Reviews & Apps
Motorola is going to announce a new phone this year called the “Moto X”. According to the leaks, it’s going to be a fairly average midrange device in terms of specifications, but no one really knows what Motorola is going to do to make it “special”. One of the big key selling points of the device actually is that it’s going to be made in America. Apparently some people still care about this.
Once upon a time, the word “smartphone” was synonymous with the phrase high end. If you owned a smartphone, you owned an expensive phone. If you didn’t, you had a feature phone. Some of you may find this hard to believe, but yes, there was a time when there were $399 phones out there that did almost nothing but phone calls and text messages.
Dennis Woodside, the CEO of Motorola, was recently interviewed at the AllThingsD conference currently taking place in New York City. He revealed quite a few things about the “X Phone” that we’ve been hearing via various rumors and leaks. He says the phone will be made in the US at a former Nokia plant in Texas. I know exactly where that place is since I used to drive by it almost every day on my way to school.
