Google’s Project Tango tablet development kit quietly arrived in the Google Play store. The feature-rich slate in not available to purchase yet - it is listed as “not for sale at this time.”
The Project Tango tablet is geared towards professional developers interested in 3D sensing. It contains custom hardware and software that allow it to track 3D motion and capture geometry of the environment at the same time. Google announced Project Tango back in February.
In order to fulfill its special duties, the Project Tango slate comes equipped with serious hardware. They includes NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of built-in memory, 7” 1920 x 1200 display, and full connectivity suite. A 4 MP 2µm RGB-IR pixel camera sits on the back, coupled with 1MP unit with IR LED in the front.
All the above hardware goodness won’t come cheap when available. The Project Tango tablet will be priced at $1,024. The device will be sold “as is” - it will have no warranty. Returns for refund will not be accepted either.
I've been waiting for an iPad phone b/c I want to keep my iPad and when the phone rings, answer my iPad. Who cares how ridiculous I may look? At 60, I need to SEE the screen ))) LOL
How much money is it
I get the impression from some comments here people are looking at this as a consumer device, which it clearly isn't, it's a dev kits. Dev kits usually have a totally different set of criteria to production devices, and I believe the price difference...
