Motorola is plotting a return to the tablet scene with the launch of a new premium slate running Android, according to reports.
Android Police doesn't offer any information about a possible release date, but just the fact that Motorola has a prototype of such a device is interesting in itself.
While the current market for tablets is growing smaller, a recent report from Android Police suggest that Motorola is working on a tablet featuring "Productivity Mode".
Motorola might soon surprise us all with a new Android tablet.
Falling oil wipes out gains from Opec production cut
Traders also remained cautious ahead of Friday's US government payrolls report, following March's underwhelming 98,000 figure. Both Brent and WTI futures are down around 17% for the year so far despite the OPEC effort to support prices.
Shutdown averted: $1.1 trillion agreement shows Dems' clout
But the push for a vote before the 100-day marker spooked Democrats and distracted Republicans during a chaotic week. He also claimed credit for $6 billion in war funding approved by former President Obama as a Trump win.
At 100 days in, Trump seems both outsider and insider
Some of Trump's harshest critics on his 100th day have been the USA media organisations, and they had plenty to say about him. But that could change after Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull jets to NY to meet with Mr Trump on Thursday.
Just as it was with Android smartphones and Android Wear, Motorola was quick to embrace Google's operating system on tablets. These features would give Android far more of a desktop-like feel than we've seen before. Granted, Motorola's Productivity mode could be an experimental feature on a prototype device that never sees the light of day, but it's intriguing to see manufacturers still thinking about tablets. Users can toggle between the open app by tapping the icons, and can close them by dragging the icon up from the navigation bar.
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. If you enable it, the interface will switch to Chrome OS-style navbar at the bottom of the screen.
Something called Productivity mode could change the way we look at Android tablets. Numerous Z2 Play's other features are expected to be changed from last year's model, though. The screenshot also shows a dedicated App Drawer button on the navigation bar. I love being productive, it's just that I can't get over the possibility that this source's information is actually pointing to the Lenovo Tab 4 10, which was unveiled to the world at MWC 2017 and is very much not a secret.
