According to sources of The Verge, it appears that Google is about to make a rather large push to get as many people outfitted with Glass as they can. However, they’d probably have a better time with this if they lowered the price from $1500. The Verge has obtained documents about Google’s Explorers program, and it appears that for one day, anyone in the US will be able to buy Glass for $1500. According to the document that is down below, it looks like we’re going to see this go live next Tuesday, April 15th beginning at 6am PDT. Google is also throwing in their new frames and shades for the $1500 price tag.
While this isn’t a full consumer release, it is getting close to being one. Now we were told that the $1500 price tag is just for the early adopters and those looking to get in and developing for Glass early. But with them charging $1500 for anyone who wants to get it on this special one day, it looks more like we’re going to see that price stick around. Which is a bit sad, as I’m sure it would do really well at about $300-500. While this is also still part of the Explorer program, evidently, we aren’t sure when the consumer release will take place. Perhaps at Google I/O we’ll get more information about that. However, at this point, I think we are looking forward to Android Wear than Glass, but that might just be me.
Are any of our readers thinking about grabbing Glass during this one-day only sale for Glass at $1500? It still seems a bit expensive to me, but what does everyone else think? Be sure to let us know in the comments down below as always. I won’t be getting one, I’m more interested in Android Wear right now.
Update: It’s official. Google is offering Glass to anyone in the US on April 15th from 6am-9pm PDT. It’ll cost you $1500 plus taxes for Glass, a pair of frames and shades. Additionally there are a select number of slots open, so you better get up early for this one.
