In an interview with Reuters, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside said that 100,000 Moto X devices are being shipped out of the company’s Dallas factory every week. Woodside said that this is only the beginning, and that everything is going according to plan.
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.
It’s an impressive figure for Motorola which at one point was on a brink of extinction. And while these figures are bellow of what Samsung and Apple are shipping on a weekly basis, they’re the step in right direction.
Finally, when asked how many of these phones were customer-direct orders from Moto Maker, he said the number of custom orders was “substantial.”
