As of right now, Google Glass really isn't a rock-star device for those who aren't carrying an Android phone. As you'd expect, Glass
is most compatible with Android, and while it'll pair with an iPhone over Bluetooth, functionality is quite limited. But it looks like that's going to change. According to a report from TechCrunch, the Glass headset will soon be able to support messaging and navigation with products other than Android.
It's unclear how exactly Google plans to do this, and if it'll happen on the Explorer Edition or just on the eventual consumer version. But, it seems quite wise of Google to make such a move. Tying Glass to Android would restrict its usage for sure, and Google has certainly invested a lot of resources into bringing its apps to iOS
. Now, whether or not Windows Phone and BlackBerry will see similar treatment remains more unlikely.
