All Moto X wooden back options now available; who’s getting one?

Last Friday, Motorola went official with the news we’ve been waiting months to hear, announcing the coming availability of all four wooden back options for the custom-designed Moto X. We already had bamboo, launching in December, but still needed to see the arrival of walnut, teak, and ebony before the story would be complete. As Motorola informed us at the time, those new options join bamboo today, and you’re now able to start configuring designs based around them with Motorola’s Moto Maker tool.

Sure, we’ve seen renders of these models before, but half the fun of Moto Maker is playing around with all the combinations of colors and finishes, and today we can finally try out all those pairings we’ve been keeping in our heads for these past few months. Walnut, black, and blue? Make it happen. Teak, white, and orange? Take it for a spin.

In addition to the simple availability of these options, we also get them at the new price point, costing a scant $25 on top of the base Moto X sticker price – which is a night and day difference from the $100 premium the bamboo option initially fetched.

With these choices out there, who’s picking one up? If you’re particularly proud of the color combination you chose, share the details with us in the comments.
