Motorola has recently revealed that the Texas based manufacturing plant where Moto X is being assembled, is currently shipping 100,000 units per week. Though it is not a huge number, but it is definitely a decent start for the company which has been striving to bring the made-in-USA smartphone tag into fashion.
Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside is of the opinion that the Texas facility is capable of building millions of phones a year but they are going slow and easy, depending on the demand.
Woodside told Reuters in an interview, “When you set up to ramp a factory you need a plan, and we have shipment targets we need to make with our carrier partners, and where we need to be right now is 100,000 units and that’s where we are.”
Woodside however did not reveal the exact Moto X sales numbers or the share of custom-designed Moto X units out of the total but he did say that custom orders were “substantial.”
Moto X is currently available in selected Latin American countries, Canada and US. The company has never uttered a word about releasing the phone in Europe or Asia. It is rumored that a cheaper version of Moto X will be coming for emerging markets but no evidences could be tracked as of now.
