Report: Google Glass to get general consumer release by end of this year (and one user’s take on it from personal experience)
It’s been a just right month for Google Glass, it appears. Following apparently a hit rounds of developer workshops (the implications of that are being secure beneath strict non-disclosure agreements), Google verified it could be increasing the Glass Explorer software to present fortunate (and wealthy) customers a possibility to get the software in its early degrees for $ 1,500. Whereas most of us most probably gained’t be loopy sufficient to spend that a lot on it, new knowledge suggests we’ll all have a crack on the software for a less expensive value a lot .
CNet has heard it from a source that Google would carry out a consumer launch of Google Glass by the end of 2013. The original timeline was early-mid 2014 so this is even better than we expected. The device will apparently come to us for less than $ 1,500, though price has yet to be pinpointed just yet. We’re just keeping our fingers crossed that it won’t be in the range of thousands of dollars.
Other information gleaned from the source suggests Google Glass will be able to interface with both Android devices and iPhone devices, and will do so via Bluetooth. The device won’t have its own cellular radios so it’ll leverage the WiFi connection or cellular data from whichever phone or tablet it’s connected to. This makes a lot of sense, and to be quite honest we never expected Google Glass to be made with the idea that it could be used 100% independent of other devices.
In other news, The Verge’s Joshua Topolsky has had a go with the smart glasses for himself. As far as we know, this is the first user account of Google Glass out there, and it gives us a good idea of what to expect from a consumer standpoint before they officially hit store shelves.
Topolsky discusses design, potential, and his thoughts on whether or not Google Glass has what it takes to be the next big innovation in computing — long story short, he says it’s a matter of “when,” not “if.” Find that delicious story here, and tell us for those who’re going to be in line for a pair of those in the event that they do, if truth be told, drop via the tip of this yr.
