Motorola’s Moto Maker site was a huge step towards allowing customers to make their phones as personal as possible. However, the company thought that offering back panels in a multitude of colors wasn’t enough. After all, there are other manufacturers that sell their phones in a variety of colors. Motorola then had an idea how to make your phone even more original and announced wooden back plates for the Moto X.
Moto X with Bamboo Cover – Pricing
It was a while ago, so we waited, and we waited and then we waited some more. Finally, here it is – the first of the natural wood options in all its glory. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Bamboo back panel for the Moto X. After this solemn introduction let’s talk about more earthly details.
First of all, we must highlight that the Bamboo back plate is not cheap. It adds $100 more to the costs of your order bringing the price to $249.99 for the 32 GB Moto X if you are willing to sign a two-year contract with the carrier of your choice, or $649.99 if you prefer your phone with no long-term contracts.
Moreover, choosing the Bamboo covers will delay the order, so instead of the usual one week, you will have to wait 14 days. If uniqueness is what matters to you most, it definitely will be worth the wait.
The covers are not artificial Bamboo plates, they are actually made of real Bamboo trees, which means that you won’t find two covers that look the same. Other wood options should be available in the weeks to come.
