    I just chatted with a rep at Motorola and they said they are still under the impression that they will come this year. He said they didn't know

    Well I hope it's sooner rather than later. I wish they'd just put a timeline on it so people can make a decision. If we go into December with no word, then I'm afraid I'm just gonna have to pull the trigger.

    I'm right with you! I have the nexus 5 to hold me over for the wood backs, but if we go into December I'm just keeping the N5. I actually like the nexus a lot, but the battery life on the moto is making me reconsider. Again if they take longer I'm fine with sticking with what I have as well. The wood backs are just too sick to pass up.

    I'm wondering what the point of waiting is anymore. I mean, we waited all this time on VZW, the first of the year really starts to leave this thing seriously outdated. Wood backs was a huge draw but at this point, I'm wishing I had just bought a Droid Maxx.

    ....because the Droid Maxx is somehow less outdated? It's essentially the same phone as the Moto X, except with a bigger battery, and uglier.

    Not at all. But Moto Maker and wood backs is what drew me to the X and away from the Maxx. If I had known it would be next year I would have opted for the Maxx when it first came out.

    I just asked a chat person on Motomaker and she checked with someone and said they had no timeframe update. I said id wait but I may just order and sell once the wood finally comes out.

    Indeed. One just told me that "The wood backs are currently just a design concept by the developers and there is no way to know when they will be available. We will update the website when this status changes".

    I mean, I'm all about some wood, and I actually think that the current VZW pricing will probably be permanent (it's still mostly last year's hardware after all), but I'm starting to not be so keen on waiting for something that we may technically never see. Being told that wood backs are just a "concept" does not sound very promising.

    Had a chat with Moto
    What ever happened to the wood backs?-motocrop.jpg

    So, here's my plan:

    1. Buy custom Moto X because they're $50 right now on Moto Maker for Verizon.
    2(a). If wood becomes available within the next 30 days, trade it in (I live in CA, so I have extra leeway when it comes to return times I guess...). Also hopefully upgrade to wood for free, using this conversation as ammo.
    2(b). If wood doesn't become available, enjoy my rad new phone.

    Honestly, if Motorola doesn't plan on implementing wood backs before the end of December, I'm just not going to wait for it.

    For some reason i think there was word in the very beginning that they were going to have a hard problem putting this out. I'd be willing to bet it's very true.

    Seriously if they come out in like Jan- Feb. I am going to start looking at the next Moto rumors and not worry about the wood backs.

    FWIW I just spoke with a Verizon Sales Rep on Chat that said the Moto X wooden backs are still coming. However they would not confirm whether or not they would appear before 2014. Have you guys given up? I'm finding it hard to wait. I am leaving on a 2-week trip in a few days so I figure I will wait that out and then make a decision mid-December. Anyone else still holding out?

    Update: unconfirmed rumor and I repeat unconfirmed rumor but I heard from higher up management the reason why the wood backs are taking so long to release is because several "conservation" groups are protesting the "wood" backs. Hopefully Motorola will give the green flag they are ready to be released...
