The initial release of Google Glass is just around the corner. The company has confirmed that the Explorer Edition models are coming off the production line and are expected to arrive at doorsteps in the coming weeks. In anticipation of arrival, Google on Monday published a list of hardware specifications for its new wearable computing device. Glass is equipped with a 640 x 360 display that is the “equivalent of a 25-inch high-definition screen from eight feet away,” along with 16GB of internal storage, of which 12GB is actually useable and is able to sync to Google Drive.
Glass also features audio through a bone conduction transducer, a microUSB port and a 5-megapixel camera capable of 720p video.
Perhaps the best news is Google’s promise of a “full day” of battery life with each charge, although no specific information was given.Â Google Glass supports 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and is compatible with Bluetooth-capable Android smartphones running 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher with the MyGlass companion application installed.
