When Motorola launched the very impressive Moto X, one of the most unique (some would say puzzling) features the company touted was the bamboo back plate. Now, Motorola has added 3 finishes—walnut, teak, and the ebony seen above—and dropped the price to $25.


Opinions on the wood option are sort of split: at the Gizmodo office, most found the natural material (yes, they're made of real wood) a little ostentatious looking. Me? I kind of dig it. Especially in a darker finish, I think it looks cool, in a classic Chris Craft wooden speedboat kind of way. [Motorola via VentureBeat]
