The 7-inch slate capable to map the space around it in 3D is now available for purchase in both black or white and should ship in 1-2 days once ordered.

Next to Google Glass, the Google Project Tango slate can be considered a prototype that offers us a view of the great things that will go mainstream in just a few years. Unlike the smartglasses, the Google Project Tango tablet can be already used by the average consumer as any other Android slate. The only problem that remains is the price, but it is good to see that Google did not restrict access to Project Tango to developers so virtually anyone can buy this device, as long as it is available in their region.

Google Project Tango is a tablet with the following specs:

  • Processor: NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 128 GB internal storage
  • Cameras: motion tracking camera, integrated depth sensing system
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth LE, NFC, 4G LTE(depending on region and carrier)
  • Colors: black or white

According to Google, "The goal of project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion." The tablets appear as available on Google Play Store to whitelisted users and, once ordered, they leave the warehouse in 1-2 business days.

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.
