Qualcomm launches expensive quad-core dev tablet Qualcomm has decided to get into the tablet hardware market.
The company's new branded tablet was developed for the developer community, and its specs show why.

Running on a quad-core Snapdragon APQ8064 at 1.5GHz, the tablet has a 10.1-inch display, WXGA resolution and an Adreno 320 GPU. The processor had not been in any other hardware before now.

Furthermore, the tablet has a 13MP camera with flash and LTE support.

Out of the box, the tablet will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but should be upgradeable to the smoother Jelly Bean 4.1 in the near future.

Besides the tablet, buyers will also get a full docking station and any cables they need.

If you are a developer and interested, it looks like the console will lighten your wallet to the tune of $1300.

If it comes with the docking station and will get 4.1 I would pay no more than $800.00, still very nice and very cool.

Still no where near enough to merit a $1300 price tag. Even with the promise of a couple clean, fire breathing crack whores for two trips around the world, it's still too much money.
