    Any speculation if they will offer any different non wood types of backs? for instance aluminum or carbon fiber?

    Cool New Wood Backs Coming Any Time!

    Just got this e-mail (blanked out my code, for obvious reasons):

    The trim on the Teak looks to be a shade darker than that of the Bamboo. Ebony and Walnut look to be using a black trim.

    Oh man...Ebony with a black front and an orange or yellow accent looks really awesome. I wish I could trade mine in and get one of those

    So awesome. Even though initially I was set in getting a wood back, I passed on the wood because of the $100 cost and lack of initial options outside of bamboo. Plus they had the Today show $350 promo and I couldn't wait to put down my Galaxy Nexus

    However, I think I might Sen did back for the teak or ebony wood option. The 21st is just inside my 30 day return window.

    Ebony or Walnut. That is my big decision to make in the next 5 days. I wanted Rosewood to match my Strat's fretboard but looks like that was replaced by Walnut.

    Absolutely !!! That orange pop looks crazy good. It's taking everything I've got not to send my back in since I'd be under the 30-day return, but in all fairness I'm really happy I've got a unit that works well and again, to be fair, I'd like to see Motorola continue to find success and I'm not sure sending back a perfectly good phone to upgrade the cosmetics is the way to help make that happen. Just my way of trying to be a good partner with them.

    That said, I think with these new finishes and better pricing they're going to sell a s**t-ton of these. Nice work Moto

    I was expecting $50 price drop but $25 is a steal

    Fooling around with Motomaker it seems to let me pick a front color now, even on the bamboo. It did not do that before.

    What do you mean? New front colors besides the black and white?

    No. Meaning you could get a black front in the bamboo which wasn't available before if I understand correctly.

    Never heard that. Most people were going with white fronts since the trim on bamboo is white.

    I checked it out too and I really like the teak or the oak. I really wish you could do a matching wood front as well. That would be awesome!

    That option has always been there.
