Moto Maker UK

Update:

The Moto X is now on sale in the UK and you can place an order for your customized smartphone through the UK MotoMaker store. Prices start at £410 for the 16GB version, with extras matching the prices in the original story below. If you pre-designed and emailed your Moto X before the handset went on sale, you can now click on that email link and pick up where you left off. Who’s getting one?

Original Story:

The second generation Moto X launched earlier this month, and we were pretty impressed when we took it for a test. Of course, one of the big sales features of the Moto X is the wide range of customization options available, and there’s good news for us Brits – Motorola’s Moto Maker service has now gone live in the UK too.

There is a full range of front and rear cover customization options, along with trim options too. Cover and accent colours won’t cost you anything extra, but a wood or leather finish will add an additional £20 to the Moto X’s price tag.

Sadly, there currently aren’t any cases available on the site, but you can have the rear of your cover engraved for free. Additionally, you can upgrade the Moto X’s internal memory from 16GB to 32GB for an extra £40, which might be a sensible choice as the handset doesn’t have a microSD card slot.

Motorola also offers a couple of software customization options too, including a personalized start-up screen greeting, the option to pre-pick your homescreen wallpaper, and you can link the phone with your Google account so it is ready to go when it arrives.

Speaking of delivery, you can’t actually order the new Moto X in the UK yet, despite it already being available for purchase in the US. This doesn’t mean that your design will go to waste however. You can email it to yourself for safe keeping and order your customized Moto X when it finally goes on sale in the UK.
