Google Glass is going on sale for the non-chosen few for one day and one day only — April 15. Whereas Google Glass has been available for some time for developers and those Google has deemed to be influencers, only now is Google Glass available to everyone.
Google — never being a group known for rolling out a product to the masses without first building up sufficient interest — appears to be doing the same thing with Google Glass. While you may have bumped into a person here or there who has Google Glass, these people largely are among influencers and developers.
This is the first opportunity that literally anybody can buy Google Glass if they are willing to pay the money. Here's what to do if you want to buy Google Glass:
Sign up with Google. After you register, you will be notified by Google as a reminder that you can come back at 9 a.m. EST on April 15 to buy Google Glass. Of course, even if you have the money, being able to buy Google Glass looks to not be a sure thing. Here is what Google is saying:
"To discover new places, sometimes we need to leave the map behind. And that's what Glass Explorers do. They are the first to make, to tinker, to create, to shape, and to share through Glass. We're expanding little by little, and experimenting with different ways of bringing new Explorers into the program. If you're a US resident with a US shipping address, over 18 years old, and are interested in joining, you can sign up below."Apparently there will be a limited supply of devices, though it isn't really known for sure how many this is. So, if you are interested in buying Google Glass, then you better be ready to come to this page at the proper time and refresh, refresh, refresh until you get a chance to buy.
The good news is that not only can you buy Google Glass, but Google is actually throwing in a couple of extras. Google will give free frames or sunglasses to all first-time Google Glass customers (yes, that's just about everybody).
So are you going to buy Google Glass on April 15? Let us know in the comments.
