If you’ve been patiently waiting for your chance to get your hands on Google Glass, your time may be near. Google recently launched a new public webpage that allows users to request an invite to purchase Google Glass.
Unfortunately, however, there are a fair number of hurdles. First, the Glass Explorer interest form is not available for everyone. Currently, only US residents are allowed to sign up. Second, there is no explicit timetable given, other than the statement that registrants should expect to find an “email in the next few weeks with more details.” Finally, there is no mention of pricing, though it’s reasonable to assume that these Explorer units will set back users the same $1500 USD as the previous batches.
Despite the issues, this new signup page will undoubtedly be of interest for US residents looking to get into the Google Glass action. To get started, visit the signup page, where you can secure your place in line. After you’ve registered, make sure to visit our Google Glass forum to get in on the discussion.
Alongside the interest form, Google also announced their intent to bring Google Play music (including All Access) to the device. They are also releasing stereo earbuds designed to match the hardware.
