Motorola Brewing another Tablet

Based on an FCC filing for August 25th, it looks like Motorola has submitted a tablet for the governing body to approve.  As of now, all that can be deciphered about the device is that it is a tablet, and may have a camera.  Motorola has contracted Compal, a Korean ODM (Original Device Manufacturer) to manufacture the device, according to the letter of authorization submitted to the FCC.
