San Francisco - Google next month will start cranking out prototypes of a 3-D tablet designed to give users immersive experiences that could include virtual reality, according to US media reports.
The tablet will have a 7-inch display and an array of sophisticated cameras, sensors and software, the Wall Street Journal said in a story citing unnamed sources.
Google on Friday said they had nothing to announce.
The tablet was reported to be part of a Project Tango worked on by a special team at the California-based technology firm.
The project was said to involve giving advanced mapping and virtual reality capabilities to mobile devices powered by Google's free Android software.
Nearly 42% of people in the United States used tablets at least once a month last year and that figure was expected to top 46% this year, according to industry tracker eMarketer
