Motorola has been trying hard to reclaim its lost position within the mobile market, mostly by flooding it with innumerable smartphones on almost every tier. It even launched two (or one and a half) foldable clamshell phones under the RAZR brand. What it hasn’t done yet is to form a comeback within the tablet market. That seems to possess changed abruptly and in a small way with the looks of the Moto Tab G20, an entry-level tablet for the Indian market.
There was a time when the Motorola XOOM was among the more visible Android tablets within the market. Of course, back then, there have been only a couple of big names there in the market, notably Samsung’s early Galaxy Tab models. Having changed owners twice, Motorola appeared to have also changed its direction far away from tablets, a minimum of so far.
Granted, this Moto Tab G20 won’t be much to write down home about, but a minimum still exists because of the first Motorola tablet in years. With an 8-inch 1280×800 screen, the handy tablet aims for a picture of a reasonable iPad mini, except one that runs Android 11.
As far as specs go, this is often closer to Samsung’s budget Galaxy Tab A series, with a MediaTek Helio P22T processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable storage. Motorola excites the device’s gaming and multimedia consumption capability, though the specs should set consumers’ expectations. The 5,100 mAh battery, however, is certainly plenty to stay the tablet running for quite each day of continuous use.
The Moto Tab G20 will be selling for 10,999 INR, around $150 if it ever goes stateside. Motorola is targeting the affordable tablet at younger users or families that want handy their kids a tablet they won’t lose stay over if it breaks. There’s no word yet from the Lenovo subsidiary if it’ll make the tablet available to the international market or if it’s a one-off affair for India.
