Motorola has no plans regarding tablets, recommends Lenovo's Yoga slates
According to Osterloh, the company doesn't "have any plans" regarding tablets, so we shouldn't expect to see any Motorola-branded slate anytime soon. However, Motorola recommends customers to try the Yoga tablets made by Lenovo (which acquired Motorola Mobility last year).
As you may know, Motorola's last tablets (the Xyboard 8.2 and Xyboard 10.1) were released in late 2011 to moderate (or little) success.
Last year, we heard that Moto was actually testing new tablets with screens of around 7 inches, 11 inches, and 12.5 inches. However, given Rick Osterloh's statement, it's pretty clear that none of them passed the "testing" phase (or maybe the company wasn't testing tablets at all, we can't know for sure). Also last year, a Lenovo exec reportedly talked about a new Motorola tablet, but it looks like that was just talk.
Do you think Motorola should give tablets another try at some point? Or is the market too crowded anyway?
