Google has taken the wraps off a new 7-inch tablet meant for developers who are a part of Project Tango. The tablet has advanced 3D mapping and sensing capabilities and will essentially help developers build apps that take advantage of these features.
Developers who are interested in this project will be able to buy this tablet for $1,024 and those attending Google I/O later this month, will be the first ones to get their hands on this device. The company says it has built the device in collaboration with Nvidia and it features a Tegra K1 mobile processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, 4-megapixel camera, a motion sensing camera and an integrated depth sensor.
This is consistent with WSJ’s report last month, which also mentions that the company has ordered 4,000 units for developers. Google had earlier also launched a smartphone as a part of Project Tango, which could create 3D maps of a user’s surroundings.
