Does this leak prove Motorola is working on a new Android tablet?

It supposedly has a "premium look and feel" and screen size that's somewhere between 9 to 10 inches (diagonal).

Sources are saying that Motorola is now working on a new Android tablet that will feature the Productivity Mode from Lenovo's Yoga Book.

This would be provided by a task bar that enabled users to pin commonly used apps and bring them up without returning to the home screen or bringing up the multi-tasking view.

The existence of this unnamed Motorola tablet was first reported by Android Police. Meantime, rumors claim that the Moto X will have a price tag of $300, Phone Dog reported. As soon as we find out more about the gadget, we will let you know.

Neymar and his family are also being investigated in Brazil over alleged irregularities related to the deal. Neymar is not the first Barcelona player to get into trouble with the Spanish authorities.

Apparently, this indicates some sort of "Productivity Mode" in the new tablet.

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. Android Police also states that "you can close an app by long-pressing on an icon in the navbar and dragging it up", suggesting that the "tabbed apps" will be kept in memory until closed.

Also, there hasn't been any major Android tablet update in a long while, so this Lenovo-Moto tablet would be especially welcomed by Android lovers. Details are still scarce and we are not sure how Lenovo company will design its tablet but it will be interesting to see superthin bezels and powerful specs come to live with an Android operating system. The mode is also said to have a dedicated app drawer button on the navigation bar.

The last tablet we remember from Motorola was the XOOM a few years back. However, the company is yet to confirm the making of the tablet. It is also probably that there will be multiple variants of the tablet and at least one of them will offer cellular connectivity.
