Project Tango, is an ambitious smartphone and tablet project that belongs to search engine giant Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP). The project comprises of a smartphone device that has the capability to track the 3D motion of that device, and as a result, constructs a 3D model of the environment surrounding it. Now, ATAP has some terrific news for developers because the Project’s developer tablet has found its way to Google’s Play Store.
While the tablet is available in two color schemes; a black and a white one, pricing details are not yet available at this time. According to the details present at the Google Pay Store, the ‘’device is not for sale at this time.’’ However, earlier this year, Google had announced that it will be giving away its Project Tango developer tablet for a price of $1,024 at the Google I/O 2014. In short, the tablet currently present on the Google Play Store might fetch for the same price tag.
As for the hardware specifications of the tablet; it comprises of a screen size of 7 inches and displays a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels. The slate will be running NVIDIA’s formidable Tegra K1 processor. Additional information obtained at the Google I/O 2014 had confirmed that the processor present inside the chipset will not be NVIDIA’s Denver CPU (the same one present in the Nexus 9) and therefore, will not be compatible with the 64 bit architecture.
Along with the powerful CPU, the developer tablet will possess 4 GB of RAM and a mammoth 128 GB of internal storage. The front facing camera of the tablet is equipped with a 120 degree viewing angle, while a 4 MP UltraPixel camera is located at the rear side of the device. Furthermore, an integrated depth sensor and WiFi and NFC connectivity are tools sufficient enough to satisfy the developer’s requirements.
