美唯一智慧手機廠 收了 | 摩托羅拉德州廠 年底熄燈

Google 旗下德州摩托羅拉手機廠不到一年就打烊。 路透社 Google 旗下的摩托羅拉行動公司德州手機廠,一年前才打著「美國唯一智慧手機廠」的名號開張,但 30 日已宣布準備年底前關門大吉。 摩托羅拉行動公司發言人摩斯說,公司旗艦手機 Moto X 的銷售不振,而維持工廠運轉的成本太高,所以只有關閉一途。該廠由新加坡的國際代工製造商偉創力 (Flextronics) 負責經營。雖然德州廠關閉,摩托羅拉行動將繼續在成本較低的中國和巴西研發 Moto X。 智慧手機的概念雖由美國率先提倡,也有多款智慧手機在美國設計,但絕大多數的手機都是在亞洲組裝。 摩托羅拉德州廠讓 Google 可以在他們的手機打上「美國製造」的標誌,但組裝其實只是整個製造過程的最後階段,在整支智慧手機生產成本中的比率相當地低。占手機成本大部分的晶片、電池與顯示幕等組件,仍然來自亞洲工廠。 摩托羅拉德州廠雇用約 700 名員工,組裝在美國銷售的 Moto X,但摩斯拒絕透露公司是否會留下這些員工。Google 在 2012 年斥資 124 億美元,買下手機業先驅摩托羅拉行動公司。Google 曾說,在德州設廠可使他們在五天內出貨到美國任一地點。 根據美國研究機構 IDC,全球智慧手機 2013 年平均售價為 335 美元,但 Moto X 剛推出時的零售價高達 600 … Continue reading
