Motorola introduced the Moto Maker alongside the Moto X, and almost a year later (while rumors of the Moto X+1 continue to swirl vigorously), German citizens can now use the famed custom phone design web interface (via Android Central). To get started, head over to the Motorola Germany website and design your new (old?) smartphone to your heart’s content. You’ll have to purchase the phone from the German retailer Phone House, and once you’ve done that, you’re free to put as much natural material on your phone’s back as you want. Additionally, you can choose black or white for the front panel and pick between 12 accent colors. And, a la Apple’s custom engraved backs, you can slap a short message on the back of the device if you wish.
