Google Glass orders open to the public tomorrow morning
Last week, we heard a rumor that Google was about to take Google Glass down from the lofty realms of exclusivity and make the wearable broadly available for one day and one day only, putting it up for sale to anyone in the US still interested in being a tester before the full-on retail launch. Shortly after we shared that rumor with you, Google stepped up to confirm the news, and now we’re just hours away from these Glass sales going live.
Here’s what’s happening: starting tomorrow morning at 9am Eastern (6am Pacific), Google is opening up the Glass Explorer Program. In order to participate, you have to be in the US, be over 18, and have $1500 lying around.
Just as we heard last week, these orders will include a free shade or frame of your choice, which can go as high as $225 on their own.
Even with this greatly increased availability, the offer isn’t without its limitations; Google says that it only has a limited number of units to sell, so there’s a chance that it might sell out. If you’ve got your heart set on joining the Glass community, be sure to act quickly.
While this is just a registration page for the moment, here’s the URL you’re going to want to hit-up on Tuesday morning to snag Glass for yourself: Glass
