It has been over two years since Motorola launched a tablet, the Xoom 2 was its last foray into the highly competitive tablet market. The Google owned company kickstarted its smartphone business last year with the well-received Moto X as well as the highly affordable Moto G smartphone. The former debuted with Moto Maker, Motorola’s online studio that lets customers add their personal touch to the smartphone. Its possible that in the future Motorola might release a tablet that’s also customizable using Moto Maker, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside says that the company is “looking at tablets.”

In a chat with the folks at Pocket-lint, the CEO revealed that “a lot of people” have asked them to build a tablet that’s compatible with Moto Maker, the online studio would let them customize their tablet. Woodside doesn’t rule out the possibility, saying that there might be a day in the future when the company does that. For now Motorola sees opportunity in the smartphone market and it wants to focus more on the “five billion people without smartphones.” Even though its committed to smartphones for now, the company seems to be willing to offer an option that no other manufacturer is offering right now, the ability to customize tablets. It remains to be seen just how long it takes for Motorola to throw its hat back into the ring again.
