Blip: Motorola cries 'timber!' and teases wood Moto X

There have been rumors about a wood chassis for Motorola’s Moto X for months, and the company is finally acknowledging them officially – albeit cryptically.

In a Google+ post Motorola published an image of the Moto X’s silhouette dotted-lined onto a slab of wood, with the caption "Put this DIY project on hold. Trust us."

The intent behind the message is clear, though details are still scarce. But we’ll be keeping an eye out for the wood option to hit Motorola’s Moto Maker customization platform soon.

Of course the real question now is, if a Moto X is called in the woods with no one around to hear it, does it still ring?
