Google Glass on sale for everyone in US




Starting today, Google will sell the "Explorer" version of Google Glass to any US resident who places an online order for the device. To everyone outside the US, Google has apologized in a post on their Plus social network with a "Sorry, we're just not ready yet to bring Glass to other countries".

The internet-connected eyewear will still cost $1,500, the same price that Google has charged for it since sales of the device began last year.

The April 15 sale will take place at http://google.com/glass/start/how-to-get-one. Google isn't saying how many sets of Glass will be available during the limited-time offer.

"Our Explorers are moms, bakers, surgeons, rockers, and each new Explorer has brought a new perspective that is making Glass better," Google said in their post.

Glass looks like a pair of spectacles except the Explorer edition doesn't contain any actual glass in the frame. Instead, the device has a thumbnail-sized screen attached above the right eye so a user can check email, see Twitter posts or get directions without having to grope for a phone.

This version of Glass, though, still isn't the polished product that Google hopes to release in stores later this year. Google has indicated that the mass-market version of Glass will sell for less than $1,500. agencies

Google is expected to provide more details about its Glass plans at its annual developers' conference in late June.
