Motorola is getting ready to launch its first smartphone since Google bought the company. The Moto X will be assembled in the United States and this seems to be the major selling point - an All American smartphone.
Motorola prepares to roll out its first smartphone since Google bought the company. The company has revealed to AdAge their first ad and the initial marketing campaign. Motorola is going to play the made in America card.
"What we are doing which is very different is assembling [Moto Xsmartphones] here in the U.S. in our assembly plant in Fort Worth, Texas," Brian Wallace, Motorola's VP-global brand and product marketing, said. "What better time than July 4th to come with a message like that?"
The first Moto X Ad will be in major newspapers today as a full page ad. Besides being assembled in the US, you can also design the Moto X to your wishes. What that means remains a mystery.
It is a smart move by Motorola to position the new Moto X as made in America. Most components though still will come from Asia.

The famous actress and creator of a website named Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow, is facing a lawsuit by a man who claims she plagiarized his creative phrase. And she is also concerned about her ex-husband’s new relationships.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
