After Motorola teased their anticipated wooden Moto X back cover yesterday, the first in a series of wood-grained backs is now officially available via Motomaker. The all new natural “Bamboo” wood option can now custom fitted onto a Moto X but before you rush to pick one up for yourself, keep in mind it does come at a hefty premium.
That’s right folks, at $100 on top of the normally priced Moto X, this one if for dedicated fans only. We rang up a 32GB Moto X in bamboo for a grand total of $650 off-contract and before taxes. For those looking to for a new 2-year agreement can pay a much more reasonable $250 on-contract.
Of course, Motorola’s new financing offer is always available, but even then that’s a steep price to pay for a wooden phone. Especially when sequels to many popular handsets are just around the corner. What do you guys think? Any readers out there that have been waiting to jump on a wooden Moto X? Anyone actually going to do it?
