The Motorola Moto X is a phone that sets itself apart from the pack by being customizable. Its maker is considering a tablet that offers the same option.
CEO Dennis Woodside told Pocket-lint “We are looking at tablets. A lot of people have asked us to build a tablet using Moto Maker, to customize their tablet. There might be a day we do that.”
Woodside made it clear, however, that his company’s focus is on phones, saying “The bigger opportunity for us is the five billion people without smartphones.”
And the customizability of the Moto X is limited to its appearance. Users can’t request a faster processor or more RAM, for example.
Motorola hasn’t released a tablet since 2011, back before it was acquired by Google. Still, Woodside said last fall that a tablet is in development. No details of this model have leaked out yet, but as a Google subsidiary, there’s little room for doubt what operating system it will run.
