iFixit Project Tango Tablet

Google's Project Tango is an interesting venture by the company to produce advanced hardware. These devices are capable of creating a 3D model of the surrounding environment and enable software to interact with both motion and available space. Previously, iFixit took apart the smartphone prototype, but the folks haven't halted and are back with the tablet counterpart.

The Project Tango tablet itself boasts some substantial specifications, including a 7-inch HD 1920x1200 (323 ppi) display, 120 degree front-facing camera (4MP RGB-IR rear-facing camera along with a 170 degree motion tracking camera), 2.3 GHz Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra K1 CPU, 4 GB RAM and 128 GB flash memory (expandable via microSD). It's quite the beast and one which can power through most tasks.

The Tango smartphone received a decent repairability score of 9 (out of 10) but the tablet has failed to follow suit with a disappointing score of just 4. The iFixit team notes how more polished the tablet feels in comparison to the Project Tango phone. Interestingly, there are no screws or adhesive to secure the rear case to the front panel.

Check out the full report for more photos and details of the device and be sure to visit Google's website for everything Project Tango.
