Moto Tab outed by AT&T as a family-oriented device

Being the first product to run Google's tablet-focused Android 3.0 Honeycomb, there was plenty of hype surrounding 2011's Motorola Xoom tablet. It was Motorola's attempt to take on the increasing popularity of the Apple iPad.

Yesterday, Lenovo unveiled the Moto Tab premium tablet that will go on sale exclusively via AT&T later this week. Unfortunately, the tablet was a commercial failure.

AT&T has been heavily marketing itself as bridging the gap between wireless carrier and a digital content provider since acquiring DirecTV.

If the specs, not to mention the straightforward name, reminds you of Lenovo's own tablets, you wouldn't be too far from the mark.

A few years ago tablets were all the rage but fell out of favor as their usefulness came into question as smartphone screens got larger.

Moto Tab will sport a 10.1-inch FHD display with IPS panel. It comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. The tablet will be powered by a 7,000mAh battery with charging available via USB Type-C.

Moto Tab ships with TV Mode which lets users quickly access favourite shows, movies and content in a single swipe from the home screen, lock screen, or by tapping the Quick Launch button. For the best entertainment experience, the Moto Tab comes with TV Mode, dual speakers, and Dolby Atmos surround sound. Obviously, parents can control the activity of their kids using the tablet's built-in parental tools.

Customers will also soon be able to purchase additional accessories like the Lenovo Home Assistant Pack with a stand that includes dual mics and a 3x speaker, and the Lenovo Productivity Pack that offers a Bluetooth ThinkPad keyboard with Touchpad mouse.

There is no word on the release outside the USA at this point.
