Google's Project Tango tablet powered by Tegra K1, priced at $1024

0. phoneArena 05 Jun 2014, 12:44 posted on

Late last month, Google was rumored to be working on a tablet that would include the 3D mapping capabilities of its Project Tango smartphone. The latter creates a 3D map of your environment through the use of four on-board cameras including a standard rear-facing 4MP snapper, a fish-eye camera that covers 180 degrees, a front-facing snapper that has a 120 degrees field of vision, and a depth camera shooting 320 x 180...

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.

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.

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.

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:
