While still on the beta phase, Google has made its most innovative device - the Google Glass available directly via Play Store. However, it's just the US that is getting the chance to buy the device at the price of $1,500 (approx. Rs. 90,315).
However, the device is being offered along with a complimentary accessory, such as, eyeglass frames (for a prescription), or sunglass frames. The Google Glass also comes with an array of other accessories and on top of that, in terms of apps, there are around 40 apps available compatible with the device on Google Play Store.
The Glass Explorer Edition is available in five colors, black (charcoal), orange (tangerine), white (cotton), brown (shale), and blue (sky). All colors are listed as in stock and should ship within one or two days. However in other markets like India, the device has not even been announced.
As far as the specs and features are concerned, the Glass is pretty light, and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat. But, you can use it with either an Android or iOS powered device, with the compatible MyGlass app. MyGlass will also work with Android devices running 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and up, while on the iOS side, an iPhone 4 or iPad 2 and newer, running iOS 7 or later, will suffice.
The display on Glass is equated to viewing a 25-inch screen from about 8 feet away. The camera is 5-megapixels and can record 720p video. Glass has 12GB of usable storage and will sync with Google cloud storage. The battery should last you about a day, expect to charge it every night.
