Google Glass aiming for a Google I/O 2014 release

Posted: , by Michael H.


Google Glass aiming for a Google I/O 2014 release
Despite Google's Eric Schmidt saying back in April that Google Glass wouldn't be ready for a consumer release until Spring 2014, there has been enduring hope that Google would find a way to release the device in time for the holidays this year. It was a thin hope, and a new report is trying to recalibrate expectations and remind people that we shouldn't expect Glass until next year.

According to a new report, it looks like Google is aiming to release Google Glass sometime around Google I/O 2014, which is expected to happen in May. Given the way Google handled this year's I/O, which was an actual developer's conference, with just some software update announcements, it may not be reasonable to expect the actual release announcement at I/O. But, sometime around then seems like a good bet. 

Google Glass has been in beta testing for months now with developers and early adopters who were willing to drop $1500 on the device. There is still no official word on the pricing for the consumer release, but there have been rumors that Glass will eventually cost $300

Really? Because a lot of people have actually used Glass and think it's amazing. I just hope it isn't too expensive or it'll be a flop.

The Nexus Q was a one of Google's "example" products. It was never meant to sale. Google seems to be meant for the market and $300 isn't much to pay for a smartphone you wear on your face.

This may be next big hit after Nexus 7 for Google and at $300 win for customers.
