Moto X factory

How much longer until we get our hands on the Moto X? Not long, if this picture is accurate. Motorola tweeted a pic today of an employee in their Texas plant building a – you guessed it – Moto X. While the picture doesn’t specifically say so, the “Designed by you. Assembled in the USA.” text is clearly a Moto X missive.

I’m not familiar with the inner workings of a smartphone manufacturing facility, but one thing that stands out is the color wheels at various (maybe all) workstations. Is that some sort of screen calibration tool? Perhaps it has something to do with customization. We don’t know, and probably won’t until the device comes out and we can draw some parallels.

At this point in time, Motorola is probably best served announcing the device and getting it over with. We know all we really need to about the hardware, so it’s time to experience the software. We’re all excited, but the hype has peaked a little earlier that Motorola had expected, I’m sure.

I wonder if this guy knew he was going to be mildly famous when he was building my Moto X? I hope he signs it for me.
