Amazing new technology doesn’t come cheap. Take Google’s Project Tango tablet, for example: When it becomes available later this month, it will cost developers $1,024 to purchase. The 7-inch tablet with mobile Nvidia(s nvda) Tegra K1 processor is filled with various sensors to add 3-D mapping and other advanced scanning software. Here’s the thing: There really isn’t much software for the device because it’s really an attempt to see what developers can do with the hardware. Google says that programmers can “express interest” in buying the tablet now with Google I/O(s goog) attendees getting the first crack at the prototype hardware, while the tablet SDK is available now.
