Motorola is making its own Tablet
Motorola seems to be working on its first tablet after more than five years. According to Android Police, this tablet will have a luxurious look and feel, which will have a screen size of 9 to 10 inches. The site also posted a single photograph of the screen of this device as evidence.
Actually, the photo does not put much here, but shows a version of the multitasking functionality. This feature is called “productivity mode” and allows applications to run side-by-side. Still running apps are shown below the screen, on a black strip next to Android’s navigation buttons. In this case, the area becomes a dock, which is a smart way to take advantage of the additional display area.
It’s a little surprising to see Motorola enter the tablet area again after a certain period of time. The tablet market is generally well-behaved, and there have never been Android tablets that are very popular. With Apple releasing the $399 iPad, it was even harder to get a tablet that was interesting on the Android side.
However, the tablet market is still growing, according to research firm IDC, although shipments of “removable” tablets, including first-class removable keyboards such as the iPad Pro, are increasing despite the popularity of traditional tablets losing popularity. With the big screen, productivity functions and the so-called luxury look, it is possible for Motorola to make a right shot with this new device.
It will probably be easier for Motorola to return to the tablet market. Lenovo has not left the Android tablet market yet, but they made a pretty attractive option last year. Connecting Motorola’s design philosophy with Lenovo’s existing engineering capabilities can make interesting work.
