Is this Motorola’s New 7-Inch Tablet?

By Lito Carasig - Tuesday, September 20, 2011

It appears that Motorola has not given up on the tablet war, as recent evidence suggests that the tech giant is actually gearing up with a new tablet that it plans to launch into the fray in the very near future.

This time, the hardware manufacturer seems to have opted on a 7-incher, as we can see from the photo leaked to another site.  If this alleged rumor is true, then we can expect the embers of tablet war to be stoked again before the year ends.

You may remember that we first heard of the Motorola tablet with the 7-inch screen last February when Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha hinted that they might be releasing not one, but two tablets (Xoom 2 and this 7-incher), before the year is out.

We all know that Motorola’s Xoom has had less than stellar sales when it was released mainly due to the iPad 2’s unleashing. Still, Motorola wants another crack at the tablet market with its still-unnamed 7-incher, rumoured to be coming out by this year’s end.

Although the leaked photo is a bit blurry, the new tablet will be a 7-incher with a 16:9 (aspect ratio) screen, rounded corners similar to the Photon 4G with white borders around the tablet, a thinner design and may have both a micro-USB and a micro-HDMI port running an unknown version of Android but more likely Honeycomb.  This is to be expected because Motorola has recently announced that it is in talks for a possible acquisition by search-giant Goggle.

Also, take a quick gander at the upper right hand of the photo and you will see another mysterious still-unnamed smartphone which could be the rumoured but very elusive Droid HD (?).

Anyway, whatever those two mysterious devices are it’s sure to be good for us – the buying public – since competition in an already tight market pushes the companies to churn out better and more affordable products.

I am sure that before the year ends we’ll be seeing another contender coming into the fray and this time I think Motorola has learned its lesson (at least lets hope so).
