Google slashed the price of the tablet in half and made it available invite-free via Google Store, but it still has to hit some markets across the globe.

Google Project Tango is not new on the market, but it has only been available for sale to those invited to test it. The Project Tango development kit went on sale at the end of 2014 for no less than $1,024 USD, but Google announced a 50 percent drop of this price in early April. Since then the slate has still been available only to invited buyers, but now Google Project Tango can be purchased via Google Store in multiple regions for the same price.

The specs of this 3D-sensing tablet remain the same, as you can see below:

  • Processor: NVIDIA Tegra K1
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 128 GB internal storage
  • Display: 7-inch Full HD IPS multitouch
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, BTLE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, USB 3.0, micro HDMI
  • Cameras: 120-degree lens in the front, one with 170-degree lens and a third 4 MP camera with two-micron light sensor on the back
  • Operating system: Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Colors: white or black

Nevertheless, this KitKat-powered slate remains a prototype mainly aimed at developers and not a consumer device. We will surely hear more about Project Tango in the future as Google continues to work on bringing the tablet's 3D-sensing technology to the masses.

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.
