The whole industry was impressed when Google revealed Project Tango tablet, a device with multiple cameras that can map its surroundings. It’s a unique product with a focus in future mobile applications, but it’s not exactly for everyone just yet. It was only recently made available without an invite, as a developer kit. And even though it can be purchased by anyone now, it’s not the best buy at $512. Regardless, developers around the world can find great use for this technology, and the current price is better than the initial $1024 invite-only customers had to pay in the past.

Google continues to break down boundaries and borders by taking Project Tango outside the USA for the first time. The Search Giant’s nifty 3D-mapping tablet can now be purchased in Canada and South Korea. Furthermore, added regions will be included to the party come August 26th, including Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

While the price may not exactly be justified, those who do purchase the Project Tango tablet will receive nothing short of a great device. This developer-focused product comes with a powerful NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage, a 7.02-inch 1920x1200p display, a 4960 mAh battery, NFC, 4G LTE data speeds and a full set of sensors/cameras that make 3D-mapping possible.
