Google is giving anyone the opportunity to buy a pair of Google Glass today starting at 9:00am. You don’t need to be a developer or be part of the beta program, but be prepared to shell out some dough. Normally the Google Glass hardware alone is $1500 but today Google will be offering buyers the hardware plus either an accessory shade or a frame.
Google also has frames for sale; they cost $225 each. The frame will semi-permanently attach to the Google Glass Hardware and accept any pair of prescription lenses. Up till now, only individuals accepted into the explorer program could get a pair of Google Glass to try out. This is the first time it will be available to the general public.
In addition to the opportunity being limited to today, Google has also stated there is a limited number available, but they haven’t said how many. If you are interested in getting a pair, you should probably be online at 9:00am EST when they start accepting orders. Based on the buzz around this event, it doesn’t sound like they are going to last all day.
