Beta testers for Google Glass currently have to pay $1,500 in order to acquire one of the devices. This certainly isn’t a price that Google can keep if it hopes to sell Google Glass. Fortunately, most experts expect the device to cost around $600 at launch.
There has been a lot of speculation about Google Glass and when the company is finally going to open it up to the public. The first wave of Glass units were offered for sale to select “Explorers.” Over the past year Google gradually opened up its Explorer program to more and more people. Earlier this week the company allowed Google Play Music All Access subscribers to purchase Glass, a sign that its gearing for a public launch. It is expected that Google Glass might be launched for the public in April 2014, and that it may be priced at $600.
