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.
