Google Glass might launch by the end of the year, but its price could turn out to be much more affordable than you’d think…

Google classic: latest technology at affordable prices :)

Not sure about Glass, though

Good price, but I still think it´s awkward walk on the street wearing those glasses while everybody look at me

Punks, goths, emos, unnaturally big fake tits and so on... (I won't mention all other "awkward" "phenomenons" since it may be against PhoneArena.com rules.) this is what in my opinion is really awkward. Google Glass is not awkward at all, it is fine. :)

Then don't. We don't have to force it on yourself. I am comfortable wearing it so no issue for me.

Another way would be to use a lan yard to take it off when you don't feel like wearing it.

I got to try them, they're cool. Fit VERY comfortably, and voice recog. works amazing. Camera shots are pretty decent as well. I'll be pre-ordering as soon as i get the chance. Especially if they're at the $300 price point.

I did to and it was better than I expected. The possibilities with glass are amazing. Can't wait to see what devs come up with.

Why not just get a tablet with more features for that price? The costs outweigh the benefit and practical use of the glasses.

I wouldn't say that. Not yet anyway. Glass's features will largely be connected to it's developers and how they think (or don't think) out of the box. Smart developers, smart product.
Also, tablets have to be carried around. Glass remains on your face, which I consider to be a benefit.

The uses are very different. You don't wanna glue your face to a tablet where ever you go, like walking on the streets, or even crossing it. Yes, sadly, people these days do that. I don't really know if it distracts or helps you when driving so I'll leave that out. A lot more functions than that Btw- Record a crime in progress instantly? . I myself think that's an important feature.

Because you would look really silly wearing a tablet in front of you attached to your hat!

Why not just get a car instead of a motorcycle? That is how moronic you sound. Use your brain and think why, on a non idiotic brain thought.

Well you could "sync" it to your tab and access it while it's in your briefcase or something. You right though, Glass is an accessory to be used with a phone, phablet, or tab...it's not a standalone device.

Good point. In fact, why even have cell phones when we can have corded phones for cheaper? Actually, come to think of it, why have phones when we could just mail letters instead? You're welcome.

I wanted to wait till they mature a bit more and buy the second version. But for that price I may buy one next year when they are out.

$299 in the USA but i can guarantee that wont translate to the UK (£192). You just know it will be £299 ($465). It really annoys me that the UK government taxes the b****cks off of everything!!!!

300 seems pretty reasonable for the product, especially if they offer it with real corrective lenses or sun-glass lenses at that price. Most high end sunglasses are around 300 already, and they dont have a computer in them, or a mini tv screen.

Smoking hot price...

But after seeing the rumor and reality of Moto X's price, I will not hold my breath... Pinch of salt will not be enough...

At that price they must not be manufacturing the final version of Glass in the USA like they did with the “Explorer Edition”.

"I don't care too much for anything but the recording as I will use if for recording when on my motorcycle."

Then why just don't use an action camera, wouldn't it be cheaper?
