Whoever surmised that the best things in life are free clearly wasn’t thinking about Android tablets.These days there are countless numbers of affordable, low spec tablets. There are also a fair number of high-end devices as well, including the Galaxy Tab S series and HTC’s new Nexus 9. But what about the stuff dreams are made of? Not even the iPad can merge fantasy with reality in such a fashion.
Enter Google’s Project Tango. No, not the forgotten feline, the titillating tablet with 4GB of RAM, an NVIDIA K1 processor, 128GB of storage, 7-inch 1920X1200 display, and enough motion and mapping sensors to render even Hampton Court child’s play. The tablet, which spec-wise is everything Google should be offering Nexus owners but isn’t, had previously been available to an extremely limited lot, and sold for the price of $1024 at this year’s Google I/O event.
Well, it seems Google is now selling Project Tango on its official website…minus the sale part at least. A project page has been created for the device, offered in a black or white, though no pricing or availability is given. Eager purchasing potentials might want to note the, er, note found below the missing price: the tablet is not privy to any warranty or returns.
For a better idea of what to expect from Tango, check out our interview and demo from Google I/O:
=There doesn’t seem to be any indication as to when Project Tango will waltz with the wallet, however if Google has created a product page then presumably it shouldn’t be too long. Unfortunately we can only guess as to the cost and quantity, so those looking for the non-existent Nexus 7 2014 edition may want to keep their eyes peeled, and wallets ready. Just make sure you’re comfortable nestling with Nestlé as the tablet currently runs on Android 4.4 KitKat.
