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

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.
