It was just over a month ago that Google owned Motorola’s CEO Dennis Woodside admitted that the erstwhile mythical “Xphone” is pretty much real and that it would be made in the US. Back then he also added the tag “coming soon” to the device – although there is still no clarity on the possible release date for this device.
That said, Motorola seems to be prepping up to launch this device in the near future as evident by an ad that has been leaked. The advertisement, revealed by Ad Age talks about a phone that would be “built in the US”. This tag might only be to incite patriotic sentiments in the U.S buyer because a certain handset made by a Cupertino based by company are all Chinese made. It also adds another interesting angle when it says that the Moto X would be the first smartphone that you can design yourself”
Now it remains to be seen what kind of customizations Motorola would offer for potential Moto X buyers. Would it be just the external shell that would be customizable or users can choose what goes on the inside? Unclear – but interesting nevertheless.
The ad would be appearing in all major newspaper across the US – including the likes of the The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, and The Wall Street Journal. This could be followed by more ads with even more details. Needless to say, Motorola has so far done a decent job at keeping the Moto X from prying eyes. No leaked photos or videos to be seen!
