Google Sold Out of White ‘Cotton’ Glass model In Hours.
Google’s one-day Google Glass sale has proven to be a huge success for the Internet giant. In just a few amount of times, the white “Cotton” version of the wearable had sold out.
“Wow, what a morning! We’re happy to see so many new faces (and frames) in the Explorer Program,” the Google Glass team wrote on its Google+ page. “Just a quick update that — ack — we’ve sold out of Cotton (white), so things are moving really fast.”
Likewise, the company posted to Twitter, “Yikes, we’re out of Cotton.”
Google had decide to publicize their wearable technology eyeglass to the general public for the very first time ever on Tuesday. With its one day online sale, the company had offered any resident within the US the capability of purchasing the Google Glass Explorer Edition at the regular price of $1,500. With the purchase, the company also bundled up some free accessories, such as frames and shades.
Before the Tuesday sale was announced, only a few thousand people, mostly developers, had owner ship of the device. Google plans to make their Glass product become available for everyone sometime this year.
Google Glass is the company’s push into a wearable computer. This device will come in the form of eyeglasses that has the capability of recording videos, take photos, chat, receive directions, loop up information on the Web, and much more. While many people seems to be amazed by the device, it has caused some issues with certain lawmakers, casinos, business owners, and bystanders who do not wish to be recorded.
Even though the Cotton version of Glass has sold out, other forms such as the Charcoal, Tangerine, Shale, and Sky version are still available for purchasing. Google plans to end its Glass ale on Wednesday, April 16 at 6 a.m. PT. The device will then be shipped to consumers within five to seven business days.
