Motorola now offering Bamboo back for Moto X
Moto X with Bamboo will add an additional $100 to the cost of the phone
Motorola on Tuesday announced that the long-desired wooden back plate has arrived for the Moto X smartphone. Well, in at least one option, that is.
Available through Moto Maker immediately, the Moto X can be purchased with a Bamboo back plate. And not just a wood-colored cover – real bamboo. Indeed, there will be no two backs that look alike as the real wood design is unique every time out.
Here’s the bad news… it’s not a premium price of $50 for the wood. No, it’s a full $100 difference for this luxury. What’s more, the shipping times slip considerably when you add this option. Also, quantities will be limited and may impact delivery.
Moto X with Bamboo will not ship until after the holiday season (January). Moto Maker will provide a shipping date estimate when you order.
We’re still waiting for the other options of rosewood, teak, and ebony; no word on whether those are due soon.
