There’s been a lot of guessing as to when we might expect the wood-backed Moto X’s to hit Motorola’s virtual store shelves. A premium option that will be available on Motomaker, the last we heard from it was earlier this month in a leak. No date mind you, just the 4 finishes — Teak, Ebony, Rosewood and Bamboo — listed on Motomaker as “coming soon.”
Today, Reuters’ Sinead Carew provided us with an update, going on the record as saying the wood finishes would, unfortunately, miss their target Thanksgiving release, but should still arrive in time for holiday shopping.
For some of you, you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on a Moto X until these special wood-backings were available, and who could blame you. It’s a shame they weren’t made available shortly after the device’s release, but we imagine real wood is a little harder to come by these days.
