Meet the Lenovo Moto Tab, an interesting tablet coming soon to AT&T

Back in May, we told you that a brand new Motorola tablet (featuring a Productivity Mode) could be released soon. Now, we know that the tablet is called Lenovo* Moto Tab, and will be available in the US via AT&T.


While the Lenovo Moto Tab hasn't been officially announced yet, AT&T published a promo video - embedded above - showcasing some of its features. The second largest US mobile carrier presents the device as a "family tablet designed for entertainment," as it's got a 10.1-inch Full HD screen, plus dual speakers with Dolby Atmos sound, and supports up to 7 customizable profiles (perfect for large families). 

The tablet's Productivity Mode includes a task bar that lets you multitask and quickly switch between apps. For enhanced productivity, the Moto Tab will come with a couple of interesting accessories (sold separately): a full size Bluetooth keyboard with its own 400 mAh battery, and a Lenovo Home assistant dock.


The Lenovo Moto Tab further features a fingerprint scanner, TV Mode (for one swipe access to AT&T DirecTV and other video apps), Kids Mode, AT&T NumberSync, and a 7,000 mAh battery. For now, it's not clear if the tablet runs Android 7 Nougat, or Android 8 Oreo, but we hope it's the latter.


Details on the price and release date of the Lenovo Moto Tab are currently missing. 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.

So, do you think you'll be interested in buying this Moto Tab once AT&T launches it?

Update: Lenovo says the Moto Tab will be launched on November 17 for $299.99 outright, or $15 a month for 20 months with an AT&T Installment plan. The company also revealed more features: Android 7.1 Nougat, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable storage space.

* - Lenovo owns Motorola Mobility since 2014.

It's also available unlocked as the Lenovo Tab 4 Plus for $275 through Amazon. The unlocked version only has 16GB of space, but with the memory card slot and savings in $, you'll easily be able to upgrade that.

This tablet does not look anything like a Motorola tablet. He does not remember the old Xoom at all. It's basically a Lenovo Tab 4 10 with a Lenovo Tab 4 10 Plus chipset, with a digital reader and the "moto" mark on the back (not even the stylized "M" was inserted).
