Google's Project Tango tablet powered by Tegra K1, priced at $1024
Google's tablet is now reality, as a tablet development kit will be offered for $1,024. The tablet is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor with 4GB of RAM on board, 128GB of native storage and a 7 inch screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution. Stock Android 4.4 is pre-installed, and the slate has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth LE and 4G LTE connectivity. There are two cameras on the device, and a depth sensor.
Keep in mind that this is not designed to be a tablet for the average consumer, although it appears that you do not have to be a developer to purchase the slab. Google will be making this available on a limited basis. Only 200 Project Tango smartphones were disseminated, although 4000 units of the tablet are expected to be sold. While the Project Tango tablet will be released late next month, those interested can leave their email address with Google now, and be alerted when the launch is going to take place.

I wonder if it's the Cortex A15 version or the 64 bit Denver version?

Android Police is saying it's the Quad-Core A15 version.
Not the Dual-Core Custom Denver one.

Now the fandroids, who blabbed about the Surface Pro 3 being overpriced, will say that this tablet is worth the money and some other nonsense. I respect Google and their Nexus line, which offers great value for money. But this is an absolute rip off. 1000 dollars for a 7 inch tablet with four cameras? Seriously Google? And then some idiots say that MS overprices products to their customers. I would like to see what response and excuses I get from fandroids now. I never saw Google as a company overpricing their products, unlike some other tech giants, but I might start to now.

Good god, read the damn article before posting your drivel. It isn't a consumer tablet, it isn't priced in line with that market. It also has things on it than you will never get with a surface tablet probably ever. But that doesn't matter, because this is for developers and professionals.

Still, its 1K for a 7 inch tablet. Not even a developer will pay that much.

Do you even know it has 3d capabilities???

It's a developer product, not a consumer product. Just like Google Glass, the developer edition will be much more expensive than the consumer version (if there is one). Google Glass is currently $1500 but will be about 300-500 in the consumer release.

Be above that, Nokia. I am a surface user and an android user and I won't complain. I'm Interested to see bigger priced android, though..

Lol. With this price I can buy Surface PRO or any other WINDOWS 8.1 PRO tablet ..why would anyone buy 1000$ tablet that can't run full programs and high quality GAMES ?

This is not a consumer tablet, its a prototype with 3D maping capabilities..

another guy who didn't read the whole article. well maybe you did read it but upon seeing the price on title you didn't even try to understand why it was so expensive and give the comment straight from regular consumer point of view.

Some people cannot comprehend the meaning of 'DEVELOPER EDITION'

ok, so, if certain people read the article they would know that the tablet is being sold to developers, although, anyone can get it - sooooo, why is it going to cost over 1000?
I bet it has to do with supply....

Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 MDP isn't cheap either.
and the S4 pro version that comes out before that is even more expensive:
