The retail and mass produced version of Google Glass could be set for an arrival in mid-2014. The exact launch has been scheduled for I/O 2014 which is to be held in May next year. The Explorer edition of Google Glass costs about $1500, but the retail version is set to cost somewhere close to $300 according to rumors. We can expect Google to shed more light on its launch prior to the I/O event next year.
Initial reports claimed that Google was looking to launch the retail edition of Glass by the end of 2013, but that doesn’t seem likely now. However, with all the issues and problems rectified, we can expect Google to begin mass production in mid 2014 with sales commencing shortly after that. This goes well in line with Eric Schmidt’s Spring 2014 launch prediction.
Perhaps Google will hold a separate launch event for Glass much like it did for the Nexus 7 this year. Glass has been a phenomenal success for Google with mostly positive reviews. We can expect to see a bundle of changes to Glass in time for its retail launch.
