Google Glass Sells Out In First One-Day Sale
On Tuesday, Google began selling Google Glass to residents of the United States for a 24-hour period.
Costing $1,500 (plus tax), and coming bundled with either sunshade lenses or a prescription lens frame, Google warned in advance that numbers were limited.
They were quite right, according to new reports, since by Wednesday morning when the sale ended, the entire stockpile had been snapped up.
“We’re out of spots in the Explorer Program for now,” Google apologized on its Glass sign-up page — followed by a sign-up form, which will notify would-be owners if a spot opens up for the wearables later this year.
Don’t worry if you did miss your chance, however — another one-day sale will most likely be held in the not-too-distant future, while a less expensive consumer version of Google Glass is planned to launch before the end of the year.
Until then, you’ll have to find another way to get kicked out of movie screenings…
