Moto X in bamboo

Heads up, folks: Just got an e-mail from Motorola saying that the new bamboo-backed Moto X will now be delivered on or before Dec. 27.

Good news! We previously estimated your Moto X with Bamboo to ship in January, however we’ve been able to work some magic.

Your Moto X with Bamboo will now be delivered to you on or before 12/27.  No need to call us—we’ll keep you updated on our progress and let you know when it has shipped via email.

And that is that. The bamboo version still carries a $100 premium.

Bamboo Moto X now ships by the end of the year


I have to say it's great to see Motorola take care of business lately. The messages and public postings to consumers have been very personable and without the usual "suit" jargon.

No joke. I was told on 12/13 I'd get my Motomaker Moto X on 12/26 (which I was fine with). Then on the 16th I was told to expect it by the 20th. It arrived on the 17th.
Under-promise, over-deliver... then bask in the praise.

so you know, that delay in projection was not a part of the game. I was there that weekend parked on stuck on I-20 and in 200 mi radius everything was stopped for 3 whole days. inches thick ice everywhere. people mostly just stayed home. they freaked out because all the carriers were in a mess too.

How was AC able to "work some magic" influence Google's Motorola to advance production and delivery date of the bamboo version?

I think you misunderstood the quote. The indented text in the middle of the article, is a quote by Motorola, and that is why it is referring to them as 'we'.

My apology.
chadthebuilder is correct.
My misunderstanding.
The indented text is Motorola's statement; not Phil's.

Too little too late! I was considering a moto x but got an N5 instead. They should not even have mentioned the wood back at launch, such a stupid move on their part. That and exclusive for att really boned this launch for this phone.

"Little Too Late", so I gotta hate...
Did all you guys who have to comment in Moto X comment threads about how you don't want this phone decide to coordinate on that phrase?

Weird how the X-Haters seem to have talking points.

I guess its cool but really since its real bamboo? Wouldn't chip and fly off exposing the internals or is that a little crazy
