Nexus Q Made in America? Not Quite, Teardown Finds

PCMag:

The company’s cheeky 21-step teardown revealed that Google’s claims that the product was “designed and manufactured in the U.S.” may not be 100 percent true; much of the device’s innards were created in Asia, then put together in America.

Though iFixit couldn’t place every piece’s origin, the company places them as likely being manufactured in areas that include France, Germany, China, the U.K., the Netherlands, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, India, or the Philippines.

Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Truth in advertising.
