  • Motorola Reportedly Developing An All New 'Productivity Focused Tablet'

No one has ever accused the Moto Z lineup of being too bulky; in fact, Motorola's first generation of modular phones are some of the slimmest handsets available. You don't have to be an analyst to see that usage is dramatically down, and a new report confirms that very fact. It's said to come with a unique feature (though one that it may actually be borrowing from certain Lenovo slates): Productivity Mode.

The Lenovo Yoga Book is known as the "ultimate 2-in-1 productivity tablet" and it has made a good impression within the mobile industry. While long thought to be dead, Android tablets are having something of a renaissance in 2017, with Samsung releasing the Galaxy Tab S3 and Google changing up the way its Pixel C tablet operates, and Moto's feature is another way tablets are adapting to the changing times.

Apple and Samsung will have a new rival for their tablet flagships as Motorola is reportedly working on a 10-inch Android tablet with powerful features.

Led Zeppelin reunion rumors sparked by cryptic Robert Plant message
The English rock band formed in 1968, however, the death of former drummer Jason Bonham in 1980 led to their disbandment. The rumors reportedly stirred with a cryptic update to Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant's official website .

Based on the speculation, this new model could be a productivity-geared device more comparable to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. It reads: "Switch between apps by tapping the app icon in the navigation bar". The device comes with the ability for the users to close any running application by just dragging the icon of the app from the navigation bar to any other corner of the user interface. This will enable a much easier thumb access for the users. We see a navigation bar that groups the on-screen buttons to the left, with an app drawer icon to the right of the controls.

As per the report, the new Moto Android tablet will have an approximately 9-10 inch display, and the tablet will itself have a "premium look and feel". However, the company is yet to confirm the making of the tablet. Keep in mind Lenovo bought Motorola in 2014.
