    How does a Moto Maker customized Motorola Android tablet sound to you? That's the idea that Motorola is supposedly mulling over right now. Here's a quote with the details,

    It doesn't sound like he is too committed to the tablet plan, but that could obviously change at a moment's notice. What do you guys think of this? If they had the same competitive pricing and innovative features found in the Moto X and/or Moto G could Motorola surge back into a strong Android tablet position?

    Why does Google buy tablets from Asus and Samsung? Shouldn't their own company be building them?

    My guess on that is profit, each company bids on how cheap they can make the next version of nexus.
    Google then looks over the bids and chooses the one they feel makes them the largest profit.
    Google probably pays $40 a tablet sells for $200 plus.
    If a company tells Google they can't keep building tablets at that price then Google simply changes companies zero overhead for Google.
