Google is certainly no stranger to thinking outside of the box, and has fathered many projects over the years that shows the company’s ability to think differently, with a few examples being Google Glass, Project Ara, and Project Tango. All three of these products have yet to reach true commercial status, though Google Glass had its explorer program, Ara is coming to Puerto Rico later this year, and Project Tango has been on sale for a while, though aimed squarely at developers.
Focusing on the latter of these projects, the Project Tango tablet was first released as an invitation-only product and was priced at $1024, making it far outside the realm of even the highest-end Android tablets. But in April, Google decided to cut the price in half, to just $512. Now they are taking things another step forward by opening up sales to any interested buyer, no invite required. This is an important step in Google’s continued expansion of the new tech, and will likely see many new developers, and general enthusiasts alike, who are just as curious as Google to explore the fantastic new possibilities brought to the table by Project Tango.
If the price cut made you more inclined to try Tango for yourself, then be sure to carefully follow this year’s Google I/O, taking place on the 28th and 29th of May, as it will contain useful sessions concerning Project Tango. For those interested in picking one up, you’ll want to head on over to the Google Store.
