Motorola returns to the tablet market after 6 years

Motorola returns to the tablet market after 6 years

If the specs, not to mention the straightforward name, reminds you of Lenovo's own tablets, you wouldn't be too far from the mark. In turn, Motorola helped Lenovo gain traction in the mobile business.

The Moto Tab is slated (no pun intended) for launch on November 17. That's not a very powerful package, but it works for what it's designed for - entertainment. The tablet comes equipped with a Snapdragon 625 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage with a microSD slot available.

Oman to attend OPEC meeting on November 30, supports oil cuts extension
The price of Iran's light crude oil in the week ended on November 3 rose $2.59 to stand at $60.04 per barrel, IRIB reported on Sunday.

This launch of Tablet is basically meant for the promotion of DirecTV from AT& T. The company wants to promote their DirecTV services and for that they planned to launch this tablet. The long-battery life is enough to keep the kids entertained while on a long trip. 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.

Motorola has previously been absent from the tablet scene for quite some time. It's an interesting "repurposing" of what would otherwise be a standard tablet although given the cost of the Moto Tab (no word yet on how much extra the Home Assistant Pack will sell for), those after a pure smart home speaker would likely be better off just buying a dedicated device for the job.

There's also the Lenovo Productivity Pack that adds a case folio and a Bluetooth ThinkPad keyboard with Touchpad mouse so you can work anywhere. 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.
