Update: Turns out that all the variants of Glass are currently sold out on the website, indicating that this could have well been an error from Google. So Glass isn’t available for everyone after all. Stay tuned for more on this.
We recently saw the Google opening a single day promotion for Glass, allowing practically any customer over the age of 18 to purchase the device. It seems like Google was testing the waters with that promotion as it has now made Glass available for all on a permanent basis.
So if you weren’t able to get the wearable during the one day promotion, this is your opportunity to get one, practically any time you want. It will still cost $1500 though, so that hasn’t changed.
For that price, users will get one unit of Glass along with a prescription lens or sunglasses of your choice, a mono earphone, charger, USB cable and a pouch.
It’s good news that Google has finally made Glass available to all without requiring a developer invite, but the pricing is still too steep for the average consumer to contemplate buying something like this. We hope Google makes a note of this and slashes pricing to make Glass more attractive to the customers.
There’s still no word on when we can expect the consumer version of Glass to hit the markets, but reports have pegged an early to mid 2015 release, so we won’t be holding our breath.
