GOOGLE GLASS GOES ON SALE FOR A DAY

Qatar Today - - DEVELOPMENT > TECH TALK -

ALimited pieces of Google's lon­gawaited, much­hyped pet project Google Glass went on sale for one day only in the United States.

ny­one over 18 years of age could pur­chase Glass on April 15 by book­ing the lim­ited num­ber of pieces that were put up for sale. The de­vice, which is not in stores yet and has only been made avail­able by in­vi­ta­tion to Google Glass Ex­plor­ers through a lim­ited beta-test­ing pro­gramme, was com­pletely sold out in a day. The com­pany de­clined to com­ment ex­actly how many were sold, but by the next morn­ing all the white “Cot­ton” ver­sion of Glass, priced at $1500 (plus taxes) were gone. There are con­tentious de­bates on whether it is worth buy­ing the de­vice now as the num­ber of apps de­vel­oped is still quite small, many es­tab­lish­ments have rules against wear­ing the de­vice on their premises and traf­fic laws govern­ing the use of Glass are not yet clear.
