Google, inching ever closer to releasing Glass to the general public, said it will begin shipping early editions of the smartglasses to app developers this week.
The Silicon Valley search engine giant sold the $1,500 glasses last year to those in attendance at its developer conference, and this week the company notified some buyers that the first units were finished and ready to be shipped.
"Instead of waiting for all of the devices to be ready, we want to start delivering them to you now," Google said in its letter. "We'll be notifying you in waves, and as soon as we're ready to invite you, we'll let you know."
Google also posted online detailed specifications for Glass. The highly anticipated device features a display that the company says "is the equivalent of a 25-inch high definition screen from eight feet away."
