Rumors were rife suggesting that Google is planning to take its 3D mapping capabilities with Project Tango beyond smartphone hardware. The speculations claimed that the same will be arriving on a 7-inch tablet that can create 3D map of the surrounding environment using the four on-board cameras. This Project Tango Tablet is now official and it will be offered as a tablet development kit for $1024.

This Project Tango Tablet is powered by NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor supplemented by 4GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board storage space. Google has given this tablet a 7-inch Full HD display. Fueled by Android 4.4 KitKat, the Project Tango Tablet has connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and 4G LTE.

While the tablet has mind blowing specs, it should definitely be acclaimed for its advanced camera system that comprises of the primary 4MP snapper, fish-eye camera covering 180 degrees, front-facing camera with 120 degrees field of vision, a dedicated motion sensing camera and depth sensor.

Our 7" development kit is powered by the new NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor packed with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, motion tracking camera, integrated depth sensing, WiFi, BTLE, and 4G LTE (availability will depend on region and carrier).

These development kits are designed for professional developers interested in exploring the future of mobile 3D sensing. Developers will receive updates as the software algorithms and APIs evolve. These development kits are not a consumer device and will be available in limited quantities.

Undoubtedly the Project Tango Tablet is an impressive Android device in terms of specs, but it has to be noted that its hardware does not come at an affordable pricing. Eventually, this tablet is not developed for the normal consumer and Google will be producing only limited units of this slate, say only 4,000-units as rumoured earlier.

While comparing to the Project Tango smartphone, the tablet should be existing in larger amounts. It will be released later this month, interested consumers can leave their email address with the Google right now and the firm will update when the device will be launched.
