A little bit of disappointing news for those who were hoping for a bit of custom engraving on their Moto X, at least initially. Motorola has confirmed to us that the option won’t be available when the phone and its Moto Maker custom designer go live later this week. “We love this feature. We’re going to make it happen,” a Moto spokeswoman told us this evening. We’ll just have to wait a bit. No ETA was given.
Moto X will be available on AT&T starting Friday, and the carrier currently has an exclusive on the Moto Maker customization. (Verizon will get it later this year, it says.) All the custom colors we showed you in our preview last week will be available, as will a custom boot message. If you want engraving, you’ll have to wait.
And, actually, waiting might not be the worst idea in the world. There are 18 design options currently available for Moto X, but it’ll gain more later this year — including a wood back.
