Anyone (in the U.S.) Can Buy Google Glass Now

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Google has formally announced that it's opening sales of Glass to everyone -- everyone in the U.S., that is. If they're in stock and you have $1,500 (£890) to spare, you can buy a pair.

The move follows a one-off day in April which saw Google open its sales up to everyone in the country, and then an unofficial report that it was going to be a permanent move a couple of weeks later. It's worth noting that this is still the Explorer Program: the device is still a beta, and the prices remain high. But the broadening of availability is an obvious step toward a forthcoming consumer push—and, with any luck, a serious drop in price. [Google]
