Wooden backs on custom Moto X devices may cost an extra $50

Moto_X_Wood_Backing_TA

If you’ve been waiting to get your hands on a custom Moto X with wooden backing, you may want to know that there is a possibility that it’ll cost you a bit extra up front. According to some information found in code of the Moto Maker website, the options for wood backs on a Moto X (teak, ebony, rosewood, and bamboo) are all listed with a price of $50, as opposed to $0 for all of the standard colors that are available. That’ll put you at $249 or $299 on contract, depending on your storage configuration, and that would likely still apply to off-contract pricing.

Wood paneling is cool, and it’s definitely a more complex manufacturing process than just the standard plastic backs. Are any of you going to be willing to shell out the extra few bucks for a unique device in a few months? Let us know in the comments.

    The wood would definitely make your phone stand out. I would pay the extra 50.
