    Motorola is going to milk the Moto Maker customization concept to its fullest with the Moto X, and we applaud them for it, especially with their new idea. They just added college logos and colors to the options for customizing your own personal Moto X. They are even taking it a step further and offering a "college discount" to anyone who can show they are in college currently by sharing a valid .edu address. The regular price for the off-contract Moto X is $399, but with the college discount it drops by $60 bucks to $339. Not bad!

    Here's a quote with all the details,

    I feel stuff like this is worth more than things like Smart Stay and those kind of features on Samsung devices. Having a device that is personalized to you is pretty cool. but, why only college? Give me some NHL logos!

    Cool. I still carry my Moto X more than anything else. It's red and black, the start screen says "Good Morning Dave" and it has "Mighty Mo" on the back. Somehow that makes it just a little bit more "mine" than the other phones.

    I hope there is a Moto X-2 that is customizable like this. If there is I would like to get a Houston Texans version. : )

    I feel like that is a little tricky though. The college logo is printed on the clear plastic snap on case, not the phone. They are just giving you the same color options of the Moto X it has always had, just you get a free plastic case with a college logo on it.
