When the Moto Maker first launched for Motorola’s Moto X, we were quite pleased with the variety of options available, and even if Motorola’s selections didn’t hit every color under the sun, there was enough of a spread to keep us happy. When the wooden back options arrived several months later, it was like a good thing getting even better. But apparently that wasn’t the end of things for Motorola, and today we learn of even more variety coming to Moto Maker, as Motorola introduces a dozen new back and accent color options.
These new color choices are presented as part of the Moto X “College Collection,” specifically chosen to allow college students (as well as alumni or anyone else looking to show support) to outfit their Moto X designs in their school’s colors. Motorola is even partnering with a case company to offer clear cases that add the school’s logo (at extra cost), complementing your color scheme.
While that’s the logic behind the new hues, you’re in no way restricted to just using them in combinations that align with school colors, and can employ the Moto Maker to put them together any way you see fit.
Continuing with this college theme, Motorola also introduces a new deal for Moto X shoppers with school affiliations, knocking $60 off the cost of an off-contract Moto X if you’ve got a valid .edu email address – and that doesn’t just mean current students, as Motorola is clear that faculty, staff, and even alumni are welcome to redeem the offer, so long as they have that .edu email account.
