Motorola Reportedly Working On New Android Tablet For Productivity

Moto X Pure Edition Latest News & Update: Android 7.0 Nougat Update Now Available With Multitasking, Date Saver Features At $300

The publication says that it's 9-10 inches in diagonal size and that it has a premium feel; however, there's now no information on the processor, screen dimensions or even a name.

Motorola is working on a new device.

According to a new report, Motorola is working on a new tablet which will come with some new productivity features for the customers as well. With this mode enabled, you'll be able to pin applications to the navigation bar so that you can switch between them easily.

The existence of this unnamed Motorola tablet was first reported by Android Police.

CNET last reviewed a Motorola tablet in 2011. In theory, this should allow people to switch from a word processing app to a note taking app quickly without having to go to the normal Android home screen.




Based on this alleged leak, 9to5Google claims that the Productivity Mode has been lifted directly from Lenovo's YogaBook tablet.

Moto's parent company Lenovo usually holds a summer showcase for new products so there's a chance we could be seeing this slate rock up next month. Long pressing the app icon and dragging it upwards will close the app. It's said to come with a unique feature (though one that it may actually be borrowing from certain Lenovo slates): Productivity Mode.

Where tablets have been a drought area for Motorola, smartphones have been something where it has continued to see growth. Cellular connectivity could be offered in a model of the device, but many other specs, like the processor, are unknown.

Color me excited, well, up until the curious "Productivity Mode" that shuffles Android's interface elements around to look a bit more like that of a desktop operating system, like Chrome OS. The recently launched Moto G5 and G5 Plus are doing pretty well in the industry and the company has also been one of the best in providing android updates.
