UK developers could be among first to get Google Glass

BBC understands they could get devices from May/June

Article comments

Google Glass could be available to British developers from May or June, according to the BBC.

The broadcaster said it “understands” that British developers could be among the first outside the US to get their hands on the internet giant’s much-hyped wearable device but Google was unable to confirm the reports ahead of publication. 

The California-headquartered firm announced today that Glass, currently only available to 8,000 people through its Explorer programme, will go on sale on 15 April for a single day at $1500 (£894).

The headset, which offers many of the same features as a smartphone, will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis following an initial online sign-up processHowever, the high price is likely to deter many people who will wait for costs to come down.

The move is a sign that the company is gearing up to an official release for Glass and it will allow Google to test how much public demand there is for its latest piece of hardware. 

The Glass team said they were "excited to meet our new Explorers, and we can't wait to hear your thoughts about Glass."
