Rosewood Replaces Walnut for Custom Moto X Orders (Updated: or not)

Update:  Motorola reached out to let us know that Rosewood replacing Walnut was a back-end bug or issue that has been fixed. In other words, Walnut is back, Rosewood is gone again.

Rosewood, one of the original “natural” backs shown off at last year’s Moto X launch, is now available as an option through MotoMaker. We aren’t sure why it took this long to get Rosewood in the line-up, but we should point out that it seems to have replaced Walnut. So if you had your sights still set on a custom Moto X with a Walnut finish, those days are over. Rosewood is here.

The finish is still an additional $25 add-on, just like Ebony, Teak, and Bamboo. 

Also, if anyone cares at this point, rumors suggest that Motorola is potentially considering adding a 64GB storage option. Hopefully, this option will only arrive with the new Moto X later this summer, because I would hate to see anyone purchase the Moto X with the new one only a couple of months away. Don’t get me wrong, the Moto X is still an awesome phone, but before the end of August, we should have a new Moto X to obsess over.

Here is the proof that the option is at least being tested in the background:
