Motorola disappointed many when it introduced the wooden backs of the Moto X months after the device was first released. To make matters worse, it cost an additional $100 and largely offset the savings made in the recent price drop of the device. Motorola today announced it will address one of those concerns by introducing new wood finishes and lower the price of these devices to just $25.
Selecting a Bamboo finish on MotoMaker now brings the total cost of a Moto X to just $424 when purchased off contract, or $79 to $125 on contract depending on which carrier a customer selects.
Motorola also added three new wood finishes: Ebony, which is the darkest of the bunch and has a deep chocolate appearance; Teak, which has a lighter brown wood appearance; and Walnut, which is comfortable in the middle with a different wood grain. The three latest finishes can be seen today but orders for non-Bamboo wood cannot be placed until January 21.
