Google Glasses: A Must Have Gadget Or A Big No?
Google Glass is about to hit the shelves in a few days and we all are excited to see it for real! But is it really that great? You do have to rethink, if it is worth, since it’s price will be $1500.
According to Google, looking through Glass’s 640 x 360 pixel “high resolution display” is just like watching a high definition screen from eight feet away. The on board camera is good enough to give 5 megapixels result and it will be able to record 720p resolution videos as well. There will be 16 Gb of internal storage available out of which 12 Gb would be usable. The Glass is also loaded with Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth.
But there is still no news about battery life. Questions like whether it will last a day or not are still unanswered. For now we know that Glass will charge by a Micro USB port. According to some rumors, Glass will transmit audio by using a bone conduction transducer.
Google has confirmed that it will be compatible with both iOS and Android via Bluetooth. However an app called ”MyGlass companion” will only work on 4.0.3 or higher. The app enables GPS and SMS messaging. In terms of size and durability, Glass will feature one size fits all durable frame which will have adjustable nosepads along with two extra pairs.
