The specifications for the Google developer tablet Project Tango may have been official since summer, but since then the tablet haven’t been all that public until now today, when it was added to Google Play store.
It’s not taking orders today however, and the last official news was that it would go on sale in the first quarter of 2015. And when it does, it won’t be cheap, but cost $1024.
But then again, this is not a consumer tablet, but a tablet for developers of software and applications who can put the technologies within to creative use. And what they get to play with is a Android 4.4.2 tablet with a 7.02-inch IPS screen with 1920 x 1200 resolution, with a NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, 4GB RAM, and 128GB of storage.
Since it has 3D sensing technologies it has cameras like a 1MP front camera with IR LED, and a 4MP 2µm RGB-IR motion tracking pixel sensor camera on the back of this thing, with 3D depth sensing. Developers also get NFC, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, barometer, compass, GPS, gyroscope, and dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi.
