    It doesn't take knowing much about smartphones to realize that Google Glass, all tiny and perched on the side of your head, isn't one. Even so, we've recently learned that the headset does, indeed, run Android, so maybe it really isn't so different after all. With the device now in the hands of early adopters, more and more info on this innovative gadget has been coming to light, and some of the latest info tells us a bit about Glass's hardware specs. For instance, Glass appears to be powered by a Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 SoC. This is a chip that saw popularity in smartphones in early ...

    Google Glass is one of those products that's so unlike what we're used to dealing with that it's really difficult to get a solid read on how it will fare. It's undeniably interesting, but will consumers really flock to it, embracing its "always on" connection to their lives and steep price tag? As we wait to see how it will do when it finally goes up for sale to the public, Microsoft may already be making its own plans for a Google Glass competitor, one that could arrive sometime next year. At least, that's the theory one analyst is putting forth, who reported in a letter to investors ...

    It's been almost a month since I've been wearing my own Pebble smart watch. Make no mistake, despite a few short-comings, this is the best watch that I've ever worn. It gets notifications pushed to it from my Nexus 4. I don't have to constantly pull my Nexus 4 out of my pocket to check and see if that alert I just received is important or not. Most of the time it's not. Even still, just having that information readily available is a huge help for me! Those of you who are thinking to yourself "why not just pull out your phone" need to try a smart watch to truly appreciate its value and ...

    Google Glass certainly looks cool, and for all we know it may revolutionize how we interact with our phones, computers... heck, even the the world around us. For as intriguing as it is, though, we bet a whole lot of you have been a bit hung up on wondering just what it might be like to use. What are you going to see? How will you interact with Glass? This week at the South by Southwest festival in Austin Google gave a demonstration answering many of these questions, which has luckily been captured on video for us all to enjoy. We get to see things like how you take pictures, how you can ...

    Despite Google having been showing off Google Glass for the better part of a year now, accounts of the unique head-mounted accessory have been been more focused on its looks and the user experience than a lot of technical details. Now that the first third-party developers have gotten their hands on Glass at a recent conference (though placed under a restrictive NDA) and the project approaches its second year in the public spotlight, we're learning some more key information about this gadget, including perhaps the most important: just when it will finally go up for sale. The Verge has some ...

    For all the brief previews Google's made of its Project Glass augmented reality system so far, it's been extremely cagey when it comes to details about how the glasses will arrive. The best we've managed to get so far are comments that a 2013 release might be on the outside edge of possibilities, but Google's been hesitant to even remotely commit to anything. We're still at a loss for when a commercial release might be viable, but at Google I/O today the company revealed that a developer's edition is definitely coming out next year, with a whopping $1500 price tag. Availability for this ...
