Google Glass hasn’t necessarily taken the world by storm, and the reasons go beyond Google’s price tag. People still debate if this is a product worth buying, and even worth using at times when the public has a hard time accepting that you permanently use a camera to face them. We’ve already heard that Google is pushing the launch of Google Glass until 2015, but the changes go beyond just changing the date.

Sources familiar to the matter claim that Google is partnering with Intel and ditching the existing Texas Instruments processor that powers Google Glass. We don’t hear any specifics as to which processor this is, or how it will benefit the performance of Google Glass, but we do know that this is actually part of a broader deal that intends to take Google Glass to the enterprise. The idea is to use Intel’s existing enterprise customers, match these with the committed software developers behind Google Glass, and turn the product into a work tool. We still don’t have any idea what customers are in mind, but Google Glass is a great heads-up display for drivers and pilots, and could also be useful for doctors if you think of it.

We’re still not sure how much it’ll take for this partnership to go through, or when we’ll see the first results from it. We also don’t know how this will affect the future of Google Glass for consumers, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
