Wood backs for Moto X now just $25; ebony, walnut, and teak coming January 21st

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?

Cool as hell. Price doesn't sound expensive for me at least (well, here in Finland $424=~€312, Lumia 820 costs €315)

Cant compare wp with Android. Wp is to limited OS, very slow and a bit laggy. You cant even use chromecast with wp.

I dont know what Windows Phone you used but I had the Lumia 928 on Verizon. While it is a limited OS it is not slow or laggy. And it is a given that a Google product such as the chromecast wouldnt work for Windows Phone as Google and Microsoft have been bucking heads for a long time.

Switching to T-Mobile on the 22nd. Was almost certainly going to stick with my Nexus 5, but this new nugget of information may change everything...

If you are going to T-mobile I would stick with the Nexus 5. Overall better phone...in my opinion. Unless you want the style factor of the Moto X then by all means go with the Moto X.

Aren't you advising this guy to do what he's just posted he'd been going to do and simply repeating his point? Back to the topic, even if I had an lgg2/sgs4, which I don't yet wouldn't mind if I had one, I would swap it for the wooden covered MotoX immediately. Totally agree with you, mr hipster Lincoln Commentator.

By the time the Moto X becomes a good deal, the Moto X2 will be coming out!

It has been a good deal aince the subsidized price was dropped to $99 on contract and in some cases Free. The retail cost has gone by well iver $100 as well. Now this. What more do you want? Them to mail you one for free with no strings attached?

I'm sorry but that back cover looks hideous! But to each his own.

I ordered a bamboo version last night, and after seeing this article i called their customer service to see if they can hold off sending it since the new options were to be introduced. The rep told me that product is already being shipped, but that once i receive it i could send it back for refund and then customize another moto x if i like. This is even though there is gonma be a custom writen quote stamped on that bamboo back cover.
