Tweet shows that wooden backs are still coming to Moto Maker
If you have your heart set on one of those wood backed Motorola Moto X units, don't worry. While these unique looking handsets have been delayed and aren't currently available from the Moto Maker web site, a tweet from serial leaker evleaks shows four different wood backed models of the Moto X that the reliable source had previously tipped. Back in September, the serial leaker said that the subsidized price of the Moto X wold be cut in half and that four wooden covers would be made available at a price of $50 each.

So far, the tipster was right on with the pricing as Motorola has cut the cost of a customized Motorola Moto X to $99.99 on contract. So there is no reason not to expect the wooden backs to be soon offered on the Moto Maker website. Evleaks originally said that the wooden backs would be offered starting this winter, so there is still some time left for him to be right again.

Obviously, it would behoove Motorola to have the wood back available in time for the holiday season. The four different wood backs expected to be available from the MotoMaker site are teak, rosewood, bamboo and ebony.
