Google Glass Out On 15th April

Google Glass
When everyone thought that plans won’t push through, Google decided to inform the public that will take online orders for its Glass wearable gadget on 15 April 2014. This is considered as one of Google’s push to get the US$ 1,500 wraparound Web-ready glasses out to the U.S. market.

For a limited time starting 15 April, Google will make the wearable device available to more than just the select group of users such as apps developers in its Glass Explorer program.

In a Google blogpost, it did not say how many pairs it would sell, just that the quantity would be limited.

"Every day we get requests from those of you who haven't found a way into the program yet, and we want your feedback too," the company said.

"That's why next Tuesday, April 15th, we'll be trying our latest and biggest Explorer Program expansion experiment to date. We'll be allowing anyone in the U.S. to become an Explorer by purchasing Glass."

Many tech pundits expect wearable devices to go mainstream this year, extending smartphone and tablet capabilities to gadgets worn on the body, from watches to headsets. Google has run campaigns in the past to drum up public involvement, including inviting people to tweet under the hashtag #ifihadglass for a chance to buy a pair of the glasses.

Google Glass has raised privacy concerns, prompting some legislators to propose bans on the gadget.
