Glass all gone after one-day sale, Google says

Sales of the wearable computer are brisk despite $1,500 price tag

Google's one-day sale of Google Glass seems to have been a success with all units sold out, a blog post by the search giant suggests.

"All spots in the Explorer Program have been claimed for now, but if you missed it this time, don't worry," the Google Glass team wrote on its blog on Wednesday.

"We'll be trying new ways to expand the Explorer program in the future."

Google did not respond to a request for more information, but an earlier post about the one-day sale spoke of brisk sales of the US$1,500 Internet-enabled headset.

"We've sold out of Cotton (white), so things are moving really fast," the team wrote.

Aside from the white version, Glass was being offered in shades marketed as Charcoal, Tangerine, Shale (grey) and Sky (blue). Buyers had the choice of their favorite shade or frame.

Google announced the one-day sale available to all U.S. residents over 18 last week, adding it wasn't ready to bring the gizmo to other countries. Shoppers who missed it have to sign up for updates at the Glass website.

Only a few thousand early adopters and developers had Glass before the one-day sale, which coincided with a major software update for the heads-up display that put video calling on hold.

An official launch of Google Glass may happen later this year.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
