Illustration for article titled Wood-Backed Moto X Gets 3 New Finishes And a $75 Price Cut

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]
