Google Glass Explorer Edition Headsets Shipping Next Month
This week, Google confirmed that Explorer Edition Glass headsets will go on "next month," giving developers the ability to toy around with things and start producing applications for it. Of course, Google I/O 2013 is next month, so it's hard to say if the two will coincide in any meaningful way.
This will almost certainly be the first I/O event where Chrome and Android take a backseat to something else, with that "something else" obviously being Glass. While the company's software efforts are no doubt important, creating an entirely new catagory of electronics has far more far-reaching implications from a long-term strategy perspective.
