Google to start sales of Glass device next week


Google (GOOG) plans to start taking online orders for a limited number of its Google Glass devices starting on Tuesday next week.

Until now, the $1,500 product has only been available to a select group of users such as apps developers in the company's Glass Explorer program.

Google characterized the sales launch as the biggest expansion of its Explorer scheme so far. "We'll be allowing anyone in the U.S. to become an Explorer by purchasing Glass," Google said.

    Yeah, but that "limited number" of glasses will be sold in a matter of minutes anyway... No other company offers anything like that, so they can set any price they want, there will always be people to buy these gadgets.

    How come we don't get innovation like this from Apple anymore?

    Agreed but they will still have "lines wrapped around the building" for this device. (Think iPhone 4 launch date.) Google Glass will be a game changer!

    Dumb product. Why, next thing you know GOOG will be buying a phone making company. I guess you buy and wear glass to allow you to continually watch the value of your 'C" shares decline.

    So how many phones will they sell
    and does it make any difference?
    Surprised that no one seems to be running a lottery on this. :)
