This week's poll is utterly, totally subjective in nature. Our question? What are your feelings about wood? Specifically, the wood that will soon be available for order on the back of your customized Moto X.

Walnut

Motorola has introduced three options - ebony, teak, and walnut, alongside the existing bamboo, bringing the total number of plant-based backplate options up to four. Real wood comes at a cost of just $25 over the standard X, which seems downright reasonable, if I do say so myself.

Motorola has just announced the much anticipated expansion of its wood finishes for the Moto X. The Walnut, Teak and Ebony versions of the device will be available on January 21st for an extra $25. If you're more of a minimalist person, the bamboo version of the Moto X has been dropped to $25 starting today.

The Bamboo option debuted a few weeks ago at $100, so the price drop to $25 might annoy those who dropped the cash already.

Motorola's Moto X is making the trip to Europe, and while it isn't packing everything into its suitcase in time for launch (such as Moto Maker), it will still be the same phone we already know and love when it hits store shelves in France, Germany, and the UK come February 1st. The device will sell for £380 or 399 euros unlocked with British customers also able to snag one up on contract starting at £25 a month.

So maybe you missed that mega Moto X deal last month – that's okay. Motorola still really wants you to buy a Moto X. The price was permanently knocked down by $100 last week, and now Motorola is sweetening the pot even more with a free Chromecast for a limited Time.

The deal is only valid through 11:59pm ET on January 14th. All you have to do is add a Chromecast to your cart containing a 16 or 32GB Moto X and enter the code STREAM.

Google-owned Motorola has sent out press invites in Europe to an event in London happening January 14th. The company says it is announcing an "addition to the European Motorola family of products." Specifics are hard to come by, but we have plenty of rampant speculation.

Motorola's got a special New Year's treat for prospective buyers of the Moto X: a huge price drop for those who are willing to go off-contract. The unsubsidized version of the Moto X sold on the Moto Maker customization site is now just $399.99, down $100 from its previous price. You can pick up the larger 32GB model for $449.99. The on-contract versions remain $99.99 on the Moto Maker site, though you can probably find the more drab black or white alternatives for less.

Motorola seems to have cracked the code to make people really, really excited about the Moto X: give them a huge freakin' discount. After driving the Internet wild and crashing their own site with a Cyber Monday deal on the Moto X for $349.99, the deal has returned via a "12 Days Of Christmas" deal from The Today Show. You can get a $150 discount on any contract-free Moto X from Moto Maker (except the bamboo back version), or take a cool 50% off the on-contract price.

Motorola has done many things right this year. The Moto X was an innovative phone that emphasized build quality and a handful of features - the opposite of Samsung's approach. The "Lazy Phone" ad campaign that accompanied it was humorous, informative, and memorable - something that can't be said for HTC's. The company has even released many of its exclusive apps into the Play Store to provide speedier updates, including the boring ones.

Gah, what a long, long, lonnng road it has been. From the rumors of "touch sensitive wood" to the actual Moto X launch, MotoMaker, and everything in between, a lot has happened with Motorola this year. And since the X's availability, many users have been chomping at the bit for some of that au naturel action on their phone. I'm referring, of course, to the wooden backs that have long been teased.
