Back at MWC, we learned Motorola had plans to expand its Moto Maker to Western Europe and Mexico. Now it looks like they will kick off this plans starting with Germany.
The Next Web Twitter user @evleaks apparently has morsels not just about a red HTC One (M8) but also about new Moto X+1 custom back covers. The said user has leaked a list naming wood and leather as additional upcoming back panel options for the second-generation Moto X rumored to be called the Moto X+1. The leaked list also named several other custom back panels classified as “Cool,” “Neutral,” and “Warm.” The list has a total of 5 categories offering 25 various back panel options, as shown below: Cool – Navy Turquoise Olive Royal Blue Dark Teal Neutral – Slate…
The successor to the Moto X could be called the “X+1″, and Motorola is preparing to offer leather as part of its customization program, claims @evleaks.
For now, only the Bamboo option is available on the Moto Maker customization site, for a price to match the uniqueness of the material – $100, on top of the regular price of the device of $99-$199 on contract.
According to Reuter’s reporter Sinead Carew, Motorola is finally getting ready to introduce wood backs to the Moto X. Reportedly the option will roll out in the “coming weeks”.
For those who have been waiting for AT&T’s Moto Maker exclusivity to wear off, today’s the day. All four major U.S. carriers now have access to the Moto Maker!
Verizon’s Moto X MotoMaker page has been briefly published by the carrier, although the service is not available yet to buyers.
It looks like the Moto Maker is finally adding support for other carriers! If a set of new rumors are to be believed, T-Mobile will get support on Friday with Sprint to follow on the 11th of the month.
Today only, Motorola is giving away a Motorola Skip and a free pair of SOL Republic Jax headphones with the purchase of a Moto X. The only catch is that the buyer must customize their handset with the Moto Maker.
Currently, Moto Maker is only available to AT&T customers, but Verizon users may get to use it from November 11, says a credible leaker.
