Moto X ebony wood finish

Been patiently waiting to get your hands on a walnut-backed Moto X ever since Motorola first announced plans to make a wooden phone last year? Your time has finally arrived, my timber-obsessed friend, because Motorola is now selling four different kinds of wood covers for the Moto X in its MotoMaker customization tool.

Just as promised, consumers can now create a Moto X with a teak, walnut or ebony finish in addition to the bamboo cover that's been available since last month. Selecting one of the "natural" rear panels will add $25 to the total cost of the Moto X, meaning that the no-contract 16GB model will end up at $424.99 while the 32GB variant will wind up costing buyers $474.99. Customers can also opt to sign a two-year commitment for their wooden Moto X if they'd rather not shell out hundreds upfront.

These wooden backs have certainly been a long time coming, as Motorola first teased them when it first introduced us to the Moto X way back in August 2013. The good news is that they've finally arrived, and what's more, they're $75 cheaper than the bamboo backsides cost when they first arrived a month ago. MotoMaker is currently giving a shipping estimate of 6 days for new wood-backed Moto X orders, so if you're eager to feel that wood finish in your hand as soon as possible, then hit up the MotoMaker link below and get to customizing. Just don't forget to come back and let us know which wood you went with when you're done, alright?
