Google to open stores just to sell Google Glass?
posted by Alan F. / May 07, 2013, 7:06 PM
Google recently hired 40 advisers to help teach the developers who purchased the Explorer version of Glass, how to use the device they paid $1,500 a pop for. Those purchases were made during last year's Google I/O developer conference. Another 8,000 Google Glass wearers who won the specs in the #IfIHadGlass contest, will also potentially need help to figure out how to use them properly.
including one that uploads video to a YouTube channel, are already available for the device.
Until the word comes from Mountain View, we must recommend that you reach into the ol' spice rack for a bit of Morton's salt. There is still a chance that this will be part of a larger Google retail operation that will include Nexus branded phones and tablets. On the other hand, considering that each Google Glass sale will require a lot of attention from store employees, perhaps having a store that sells only Google Glass is a good idea after all.
useless, why not sell phones,tablets/laptops too..

I think most people would just go in the stores to try them out, not buy it. And hopefully they'll have some kind of financing options, and they definitely should sell their other products as well; especially if it's going to be an actual store and not an outlet.

So if you already wear glasses, do they have a unit to clip onto them or do you have to have lenses fit to the Google Glass frames?

I wouldn't be surprised if Google offers a prescription clip on. Similar to the tinted shade option. http://www.businessinsider.com
