Qualcomm has officially released its newest tablet aimed squarely at developers, the Snapdragon S4 Pro Mobile Development Platform. The new tablet makes use of Qualcomm’s new quad-core chipset, the APQ8064, which will help deliver the power developers require. That power isn’t going to be cheap, however, as the Snapdragon S4 Pro will set you back $1299.
Looking at its list of features, we can see why the tablet is priced so high. As stated above, the Snapdragon S4 Pro comes with a quad-core processor, but our friends at SlashGear also say that the tablet includes a 10.1-inch display and a 13-megapixel camera. It also comes with 2GB of RAM on board, along with an Adreno 320 GPU, which should deliver a hefty dose of graphics processing power. Finally, the Snapdragon Mobile S4 Pro comes with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich installed.
The tablet also ships with a charging dock, which features two USB 2.0 ports, as well as ports for HDMI and Ethernet. If you’ve got $1299 to spare, it sounds like the Snapdragon S4 Pro is going to be worth the cost of admission, and it’s available now through BSQUARE. Sadly, you’ve got a bit of a wait ahead of you, as delivery estimates currently come in at 2-3 weeks. Perhaps it’s true when they say good things come to those who wait?
