Google Glass May Finally Expand Beyond the U.S. at Google I/O

Google Glass First Impressions site

Google Glass has been slowly expanding for the past year or so as more and more early adopters and techies gain access to the device, but Google may be preparing to blast open the floodgates starting later this month at its I/O developer conference. Phandroid reports that Google Glass is about to receive an international launch, citing an anonymous source with inside information, though it looks like the company will still charge $1500 for the face-based computer.

Unfortunately, Google Glass still won’t be available to everyone, but after Google I/O kicks off on June 25 it should go on sale in a number of new markets including the U.K., Canada, Australia and other English speaking countries. Phandroid also notes that an earlier GlassVoice APK suggested the device could be headed to Japan as well.

There’s no word on how much Google will charge in different countries, though it seems likely you’ll end up paying the equivalent of $1500 wherever you are. This still isn’t the discounted consumer launch we’ve been waiting for, but it’s a solid step forward. We’ll be attending Google I/O live from California, so check back then for live coverage of any Google Glass news as it breaks.
