Wood backs for Moto X now just $25; ebony, walnut, and teak coming January 21st
One of the more interesting promises of the Moto Maker customizations for the Motorola Moto X have been the wooden backs. Not too long ago, we got our first option - bamboo - which cost a whopping $100. But, Motorola is now saying that it has streamlined the process and can offer wooden backs for just $25 extra, with new options coming next week.
The new wood options are, for the most part, the types of wood we expected to see, including ebony and teak. But, the last option was rumored to be rosewood, and instead will be walnut. The three new options - ebony, walnut, and teak - will be available through Moto Maker starting this coming Tuesday, January 21st; and, the bamboo option that is already available will cost you just $25 starting today.
And, as an added bonus for those who already purchased a bamboo Moto X for $100, it seems that some users are getting e-mails from Motorola offering them the $75 difference in the form of a coupon code. The $75 coupon can be used on any order of accessories that totals more than $75 before taxes (excluding the Chromecast).
With the newest drop in price, this means that you will be able to get a wooden-backed Moto X for just $424 plus tax. What say you all? Is it worth it?
