The slates under testing have sizes between 7-inch and 12.5-inch and could launch powered by NVIDIA Tegra K1 chips, although the prototypes seem to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801.

Although Motorola does not sell any tablets right now, it seems they will be back in the game next year. According to the latest leaks, the company is currently testing "multiple tablets" that should hit the market in 2015.

An inside source familiar with the matter spoke to Phone Arena and unveiled that Motorola works on a few 7-inch slates, but is also developing new 11-inch and 12.5-inch tablets. While the small tablets seem to be on their way to release, the large models may not launch at all, although they are also in the testing stage at the moment. 

In terms of hardware, the insider revealed that Motorola is currently testing Qualcomm Snapdragon 801-powered 7-inch tablets, but the final product will integrate NVIDIA's new Tegra K1 SoC. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet and this may not happen too soon, but it is possible that Moto Maker customization will be available for these tablets. Remains to see if Motorola will succeed in gaining a significant share of the tablet market, since competition is getting stronger day by day.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
