    Motorola today announced it is offering yet another discount for the Moto X: students can now grab an off-contract device for just $339 (compared to $399 off-contract or $49 with a new two year contract). Furthermore, the Moto Maker customization tool now has a College Collection design gallery, featuring pre-configured color combinations as well as logos and team names for 40 schools (and counting):

    It’s worth noting that the logos are courtesy of clear cases by Uncommon and aren’t actually printed onto your phone (so if you’re getting one just for March Madness, you’ll be happy to know it’s removable). If you don’t see your favorite team, you can mix and match with the new color palette to create the combination you want. In fact, Motorola has added nine new back colors and three new accents to its Moto Maker palette just for the occasion.
