Motorola Mobility has slashed the cost of the wooden finish for the customised version of its Moto X smartphone, and also announced a wider range of wooden finishes to choose from.

The company used to charge a premium of US$100 per handset shipped with the wooden covers, but is now charging just US$25 for the customisation.

At the same time, they added Walnut, Teak and Ebony to the existing Bamboo finish.

Covering phones with wood decoration is not new -- one of the most popular fascia designs back in the old days of the early GSM phones was a plastic wood effect.
