This morning, Motorola shot out emails to purchasers of the Moto X with Bamboo, informing them that they have been able to streamline their processes for natural backs, thus resulting in them offering additional materials at a lower cost. In other words, Ebony, Walnut, and Teak “finishes” are now on the way (no more Rosewood) and will only run an additional $25, rather than the original $100 premium asking price.
According to a blog post on Motorola’s official site, they are set to sell the new “natural” backs on January 21, which is next Tuesday. If you want Bamboo, the price change to $25-extra is live right now.
Also, if you purchased a Bamboo Moto X, Motorola is emailing you out coupon codes for $75 worth of accessories to make up for the quick price change.
Last, we are getting clarification on what Motorola means by “finish.”
Update: We heard back on what Motorola means by “finish.” Still wood, but finished to look Ebony, Teak, or Walnut.
Hell, yes. Who’s buying?
