During Google’s earnings call, CEO, Larry Page confirmed that Google Glass does indeed run on Android. Whether it is news to anyone or not, the confirmation is great nonetheless. Page noted that it’s great to have Android running across all different kinds of devices — we agree, though I’m waiting on my Android-powered fridge.
“obviously, Glass runs on Android, so [Android] has been pretty transportable across devices, and I think that will continue.”
The use of Android is seemingly an obvious choice, but it’ll be interesting to see if developers can do anything really crazy with it like we’ve seen with rooting + ROMing of phone and tablets. Because you never know if you’ll need to overclock your Glass.
