If the thought of your own wearable computer from Google was enough to make you giddy, you will be thrilled to hear the latest news from the tech giant. Google has confirmed that the Glass Explorer Edition will ship within the next month. Before you get too excited, note that Google is talking about shipping the Glass Explorer Edition to developers, not end users yet.
Google recently ran a contest allowing people to state their case for why they should be the the first to purchase the Glass Explorer devices. The contest was criticized heavily and some of the people that Google invited in that contest were later uninvited.
The Glass Explorer Edition will sell for $1500 each making it far from a small investment for most people. It’s unclear what the retail pricing will be when Google Glass eventually hits the consumer market. We’re expecting to hear a lot more about the Google Glass and Google’s plans for developers at the Google I/O conference kicking off May 15th and running through the 17th.
