Motorola is (for some strange reason) releasing a tablet called the Moto Tab

Fewer and fewer companies are releasing dedicated tablets, with the only major players coming to mind being Apple and Samsung (and Samsung only just makes the list). So it’s a little surprising to learn that there’s a new tablet coming from none other than… Motorola? Wait, really?

Yup. It’s called the Moto Tab, because what else would they call it, and it’s set to be a 10in Android 7.1-powered slate with lower specs than many smartphones.

The Lenovo Moto Tab will be launching with a Snapdragon 625 processor, 2B of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 7,000mAh battery. Those specs put the Tab in the same performance category as many mid-range smartphones these days. Don’t worry, the Moto Tab doesn’t make calls. That would just be silly.

The Moto Tab does have USB-C and a fingerprint sensor but its main feature is as an extension of an American service called DirecTV. There’s a reason for that.

The Moto Tab is an American exclusive for the moment, launching on the AT&T network. It’ll set users back $300, or R4,300 or so, which seems… okay… for an average device intended to let its users watch content on AT&T-owned DirecTV. It just seems odd that this would be the reason Motorola re-entered the tablet market, is all.
