While Google Glass has had a long and exclusive testing phase throughout the inception of the Explorer Program, there have been various opportunities for people to receive invites to buy Glass and get their chance at seeing things from a new perspective. Exclusivity on Glass has ended just for today, as anyone who is still found wanting a pair of their own but have yet to be able to purchase it, will have the opportunity to buy through the end of today. While Glass is still at the same price as its always been since they started inviting explorers to become part of the experience-$1,500-there have been plenty of software updates since then and Glass has even been revamped a little bit, and now comes with a set of earbuds and a free set of frames during today’s offer to enhance the look a little bit.
Those who have the money to shell out but may have missed the message that Google was going to be offering Glass to anyone for today only, may want to search their inbox for the email that went so they don’t miss this opportunity. As of right now it looks like only the Cotton(white) color for the Glass tech specs are out of stock, while the Shale, Charcoal, Sky, and Tangerine colors are all still available to purchase. It also looks like all frame options are also available as none of those have gone out of stock. It seems Google has plenty of those to go around.
Glass is likely to get some more testing done with this new round of explorers coming to the party but we’ll hopefully see them hit shelves for normal consumer purchase sometime before years end. There are rumors floating around that we might seem that at the annual developers conference this year-Google I/O 2014-and that is entirely possible that they could make an appearance. It remains a mystery though as to when exactly they will be available to all and just how much the final consumer price will be. Are you going to be buying a set of Google Glass today while you still can? Or will you be waiting until they come down in price and are available to the masses in their final revision?
