Lenovo Introduces the New Moto Tab, an Everyday Tablet Designed for Entertainment


We're not sure if the device's promo video will be online for long (since AT&T may have inadvertently published it ahead of time), so we are including some snapshots of the new tablet in the gallery below. More recently we see a move to 2-in-1 devices that combine the tablet form factor with a thin laptop design. A lot has happened to the company since then, including changing owners twice.

Lenovo owned Motorola announced its first tablet in about six years in the form of Moto Tab. This slate runs Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and can accommodate up to seven different user profiles, each with fingerprint quick log-in. Now that it's under new management, it seems that ol' Moto is adopting Lenovo's business model of introducing a dozen and one devices per year. The tablet does benefit from a large 10.1-inch display running at a full HD resolution. This isn't going to do well for heavy-duty binging.

Lenovo has done Motorola many great things.

Underneath the hood lies a mid range Snapdragon 625 processor which should be sufficient for most tasks, plus the fact that you probably won't be pushing the Moto Tab to its limit.

Lastly, Lenovo will also be releasing "Home Assistant" and "Productivity" packages to be sold alongside the Moto Tab. The build of Android 7.1 on this tablet even includes a special "TV Mode" which gives access to movies, TV shows, and other content easily through the homescreen or lockscreen.

The Moto Tab goes on sale this Friday, but you'll have to be on AT&T if you want to get your hands on it. Buyers need either an existing AT&T plan to purchase the tablet without a contract, or pay $15 for 20 months via the carrier's installment plan.
