Google Project Tango tablet starts at $1,024 USD
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.
