I am not real fond of Texas but this is a good thing. Would have been nice if they had opened that plant here in NM.
AUSTIN, Texas — Cellphone pioneer Motorola announced Wednesday that it’s opening a Texas manufacturing facility that will create 2,000 jobs and produce its new flagship device, Moto X, the first smartphone ever assembled in the U.S.

The company has already begun hiring for the Fort Worth plant. The site was most recently unoccupied but was once used by fellow phone manufacturer Nokia, meaning it was designed to produce mobile devices, said Will Moss, a spokesman for Motorola Mobility, which is owned by Google.
“Fact remains that more than 130 million people in the U.S. are using smartphones,” Mark Randall, Motorola’s senior vice president of supply chain and Operations, said in a statement, “but until Moto X, none of those smartphones have been built in the USA.”
