Back in 2011, Motorola launched the Xoom tablet which got a lot of fame is the first device to run the tablet-focused Android 3.0 Honeycomb. The company later launched the Xoom and the 2012’s Xyboard which was their last tablet work, until today. Motorola has announced the Moto Tab for AT&T, which puts a five-year gap after the Droid Xyboard in between which a lot, has changed.
The Moto Tab has mid-range specifications and doesn’t offer anything new or revolutionary. In fact, it looks it’s not Motorola but Lenovo who designed and manufactured the device. Even they announced it not Motorola. The device also carries design cues from Lenovo, especially the Lenovo Tab 4 10″. The similarities don’t end here but even follows to UI like the user switcher on the lock screen.
Moto Tab and the Home Assistant Pack
On the paper, the Moto Tab has a 10.1 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) IPS touchscreen and a fingerprint reader underneath it. The front also sports dual front-facing speakers backed by Dolby Atmos. The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB internal memory which can be further expanded by a micro SD card. The tablet will not appeal to the Gaming community considering its processor.
Moto Tab with the Productivity Pack
The tablet will come with both a rear and front camera, but the specifications are not announced. The device will run on Android 7.1 Nougat and is backed by a massive 7,000 mAh battery which will give enough juice to back that massive screen. There is a USB Type C port for fast charging. The tablet has a TV mode which lets users quickly access your favourite TV shows, movies and other media content from the lock screen or home screen. There are AT&T-owned DirecTV and their pre-installed apps. There is even a Kids Mode for the children that give appropriate content and parents approved websites.
The device can be purchased by either directly paying $300 ( Rs 19,500 approx) or in monthly instalments of $15 for 20 months with an AT&T plan. The device will be available from November 17, and currently, there is no news of the device being released in the Indian market.
