Microsoft Gets Glasses

googleglassThey say imitation is the highest form of flattery and in the tech world, that just might be.   Our friends over at Microsoft apparently see something in the future with Google’s monitor Google Glass.

It looks like Microsoft now has some prototypes put together for Internet-connected glasses, you know, just like Google’s high-tech specs.  According to the Wall Street Journal,  the prototype project is part of Microsoft’s strategy to compete with Google, Samsung, and Apple in the device market.  And that’s good for them.

If you’re into wearing the computer glasses, you’ll be happy to know that the market price is expected to really drop big time from the $1,500 Explorer edition (which is really for developers.)  You’re probably not going to be happy about waiting time now.  They wanted them out to consumers Q4 2013 but I haven’t seen them.  More than likely, look for a Q1 or Q2 2014 release.

Microsoft doesn’t want to be last to the party when it comes to wearable computers.  If you remember they were just that with smartphones.  I’m surprised they haven’t made the leap into the smartwatch ring, but let’s give them time.

Would you purchase the Google Glass?  What if it was affordable?

Rock forth, Mitch
