Are any of these tablets utilizing any of Motorola's features? Or have they not been able to yet because the sale hasn't gone through? Posted via Android Central App
I doubt it. At this point in time, Lenovo would have little to no impact in Moto's software/hardware and vice versa.
Sure would be nice to see real specs....
+1! And pricing on the A7-30, too.
Average run of the mill specs? Posted from Moto X via Android Central App
Waiting for your hands on review Phil, then we'll decide Posted via my outdated Droid RAZR Maxx HD using the Android Central App
Looking at the tablets and specs. I'm not looking forward to Motorola's fate next year. These things look ugly. Just look at that logo.

Specs. Bezel. SD card. Motorola. Did i miss anything? Posted from my newly Kit Katted Droid Ultra
I don't get these types of comments on a tablet. Bezels are necessary for a tablet to avoid touching the screen while gaming, watching movies, etc. Posted via Android Central App
It is not a phone. It is a tablet, for which a bezel is pretty necessary for normal use for normal people. Posted via Android Central App
I like bezels on 7 inch tablets to use for my thumb while holding and not touching random stuff. Posted via Android Central App
I really hope they don't re-brand any of this junk as Moto just for the brand awareness
The need to release a ThinkTab with windows and a 12"+ screen. Can't run SolidWorks on Android Posted via Android Central App
I've been waiting for that too. And a keyboard attachment that has the same ThinkPad style and feel Posted via Telepathy, Android version HAL 9000 "Carne Asada"
