At last year’s Google I/O, it was promised that Google Glass beta versions would be available early this year. Those of you that signed up for one might get a nice box in the mail very shortly because the Google Glass Explorer Edition passed through the FCC. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot to go on, but we know it has a Broadcom 2.4GHz 802.11 b/g WiFi radio and Bluetooth 4.0 + LE. There is also a reference to an “integral vibrating element that provides audio to the user via contact with the user’s head.” This probably has something to do with the bone conduction patent we wrote about last week.
I still wouldn’t expect full blow consumer friendly versions to be available until 2014, but I’m sure Google Glass will make another spectacular appearance at this year’s Google I/O.
