Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has confirmed that his company is hard at work on a Moto X tablet device

Following a pretty successful Moto X launch, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has confirmed his company, now owned by Google, is hard at work on a tablet device – although nothing concrete is yet known about the device.

When asked about a Moto X brand tablet device, Woodside told Engadget the following: “That's something we are working on, but [there's] nothing specific to talk about right now.” 

Motorola is no stranger to tablets – it was one of the first out the blocks with an Android slate in the form of the Xoom. That device was essentially a flop. But a newer, more Moto X-esque, slate device could be just what the doctor ordered. 

A budget version of the Moto X as well as a phablet-sized monster is also said to be in the works, according to reports. 

“Woodside said the company also plans to explore other form factors that incorporate some of the design cues, as well as technologies, from the Moto X,” according to the report.

Motorola is also said to be very committed to the idea of customisation, so it’s likely we’ll see the company’s new line of hardware get the same Moto Maker treatment as the Moto X – great news, if you’re in the US. Not so much for everybody else.

Maybe Google should build a Moto Maker factory in the UK?
