How to buy Google Glass today, and today only
Google is selling its $1,500 high-tech specs to anyone in the US. But the deal is good for just one day.
Those of you who've been yearning to buy Google Glass now finally have your chance.
On Tuesday -- and on Tuesday only -- any US resident with a US shipping address can buy the Google Glass Explorer Edition at the regular price of $1,500. Sorry, those of you outside the US are out of luck. But Google says it's working hard to bring Glass to other countries.
To grab your Glass, head over to Google's order page. Select your color. Choose a free accessory, such as frames or shades. Add more products to the mix if you wish, including earbuds, a charging kit, and a carrying case.
Prepare to spend $1,500 and then submit your order. Google promises to ship your Glass within 5 to 7 business days.
People with prescription glasses will need to buy the lenses for your Google Glass as a separate item.
Google announced the one-day sale last week, revealing that a limited number of US residents would be able to buy Google Glass for 24 hours starting at 6 a.m. PT on April 15. This marks the first time Google is offering Glass to anyone across the US without requiring a special invitation.
People outside the US interested in Google Glass can fill out a form on Google's Web site to stay abreast of the latest developments.
Those of you who've been eyeing Google Glass but are turned off by the $1,500 price tag may want to wait. Google has been prepping a less-expensive consumer version that reportedly will hit the market before the end of the year.
