It’s a two pronged attack that Motorola is likely to make at the tablet segment – a 10 incher in the segment that is right now dominated by the Apple iPad and a 7 incher for the segment where the new entrant, the Samsung Galaxy Tab is now ruling the roost. Motorola Mobility, the newly formed entity, will be developing with the tablet device, though its focus will continue to be smartphones.
However, Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha has revealed the tablet would be made for use in the enterprise sector and would also be involved in developing relevant software to enhance the tablet’s appeal to retail customers. What remains to be seen now is whether Motorola will follow the example of the HP Slate 500 that is made almost exclusively for use by entrepreneurs, or the BlackBerry Playbook that appeals both to the enterprise segment while also attracting the average consumer.
Unfortunately, there is no news of when the tablets will be released, the price, or any specifications.
