Motorola to build new slate once Lenovo purchase closes
It has been a long time since we've seen a tablet branded with the Motorola name and logo. According to Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanquing, that is going to change. A report out of Taiwan on Tuesday, reveals Motorola's intention to produce a new slate using the Motorola name. The company hasn't produced a tablet since December, 2011 when the Motorola DROID Xyboard 8.2 and Motorola DROID Xyboard 10.1 both tumbled off the assembly line.

The Lenovo executive said that as soon as the Motorola acquisition is closed, the tablets will be released. The manufacturer will use a "dual-brand" system in which these slates will carry either the Motorola or Lenovo name depending on the area where the tablet is being released. Lenovo plans on employing the same branding scheme for Motorola smartphones.

The Lenovo executive didn't discuss any particular details about the tablet, but it looks like both HTC and Motorola will both be making comebacks in the tablet market this year. HTC is expected to be the manufacturer of the Nexus 9 tablet.

Thanks for the tip!
