Republic Wireless adding Moto Maker support for the Moto X, starting tomorrow
Last November Republic Wireless started offering the 16GB version of the Motorola Moto X to customers, giving them a way to pick up one of the best handsets (experience-wise) on the market. Months later, now they’re getting ready to take things a step further by offering a 32GB storage option, as well as the ability to customize the handset with the Moto Maker.
Moto Maker access will become available to Republic Wireless customers directly from Motorola’s website starting at 9AM PST tomorrow. Pricing for the Moto Maker version of the Moto X will be $34.99 and $399.99, depending on whether you pick up the 16 or 32GB variant. It’s worth noting that the 16GB version of the handset will command a $50 premium over Republic’s non-Moto Maker version of the handset.
As a limited-time incentive for those interested in customizing their handset, Republic Wireless and Motorola will also give you a free upgrade to a wood back. The only catch is you’ll need to be one of the first 2000 Republic Wireless customers to buy the handset from the Moto Maker, though this probably won’t be a problem.

For those who are unfamiliar with Republic Wireless, the Moto X will work with the carrier’s standard pricing, which starts at $5 for a Wi-Fi-only plan or goes as high as $40 for those interested in unlimited 4G access.
So how about it, anyone interested in picking the Moto Maker version of the Moto X from the Sprint-based MVNO Republic Wireless? Conversely, do you feel that it’s just too late into the game to be picking up the Moto X now?
