Latest sale to last longer than previous sale attempt, still beta priced at $1500
Google has reopened sales of Google Glass to the public without an invitation, following an "overwhelming" response to a single day sale in April. The recently-announced sale isn't a full blown consumer launch of the product, but will give those wishing to join the Explorer Program time to do so before the device opens to a "wider consumer launch" later this year.
Still considered under open beta Explorer Program, Google Glass will be open to sales in the United States indefinitely, as long as Google's inventory holds out. In a posting on Google+ the company states that during the previous one-day sale, it "almost ran out of inventory and had to close things down early."
Since the previous sale, Google has been able to build up inventory of the devices. At the time of this article, all five color choices are available to go along with complementary frame and shades options for the Explorer Program price of $1,500. Checkout indicates that it will be five to seven days until Glass ships to customers.
