Moto Tab to Mark Motorola’s Return to Tablet Terrain

November 16, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Motorola isn’t definitely a name that gets popped up nowadays when speaking of tablets. But that wasn’t the case as it appeared, a few years back.

However, contrary to expectations, the company had slipped off from its tablet plans following the launch of Xoom tablet, which was followed by only a couple of tablet launches. But Motorola is now reviving its interest in the segment.

The company is about to present its first tablet in five years. Called the Moto Tab, the new device is a basic entry device that features entry-mid range specifications. With a 10.1-inch screen, the Moto Tab features a Full HD resolution. Beneath that display is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor that comes paired with a 2GB RAM and 32GB storage.

That feels like an old-age combo, but it do comes bundled with fingerprint sensors and a USB-C port. Similar to other tablet devices, the focus here is on media. It comes with a dual speaker setup that features Dolby Atmos. The device will also feature DirecTV in front and center. That being said, the Moto Tab will come exclusive for AT&T.

The device will run Android 7.1 OS, which will be retrofitted with a new TV Mode feature that will give direct access to TV shows, movies and other contents right from the home screen and lock screen.

The Moto Tab will be available from the coming 17th for $299, or for a 20-month installment plan of $15 per month. Users can also grab a special edition bundle that will feature an Assistant Dock for Lenovo’s Alexa-powered speakers. Another bundle, called the Productivity Pack, will offer a keyboard and mouse along with the tablet.
