Google offering Glass for sale to any U.S. consumer on April 15th, limited stock available
Google Glass might not be ready for a full commercial launch just yet, but if you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a Glass Explorer, you’ll want to circle April 15th on your calendar.
Google has just announced via Google+ that it will be offering Google Glass to the public starting at 6AM PST on Tuesday, for the same-old price of $1500 (plus tax). The only added benefit over original explorers is that the $1500 you pay includes your favorite shade or frame, if you so choose.
So what’s the catch here? Nothing other than there’s only a limited number available, and you’ll have to be the United States to order it. Google doesn’t specify how it will handle the sale, but we imagine it will simply be a first-come-first-served affair.
Of course, $1500 is a lot to pay for a product that is relatively unproven and is essentially still in the ‘beta phase’. That said, if you have the cash to spend and are interested in diving into Google’s vision for the wearable future, you’ll want to head on over to Google’s website on April 15th. For those won’t remember on their own, there’s also a sign-up page that says it will send you a reminder before the sales event starts.
So how about it, planning on picking up Google Glass April 15th, as long as stock holds up? Conversely do you still not quite sold on the idea of Google Glass — at least not until the price comes down significantly?
