Earlier this month, an Analayst from Taiwan was quoted as saying that Glass was looking at a starting pricepoint of $299. Just yesterday a rumour spread that Glass would be available for sale next year in Best Buy in the US, but according to Senior Manager of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs at Google Chris Dale, neither is true.
Google Glass not coming to Best Buy in 2014… oh, and it won't be $299 either. #factcheck

There isn’t much more to say at this point. But that is fairly open, I mean it could be less than $299….right? 😉
Glass is still only available to Glass Explorers, although it was recently expanded slightly to include a GMail style, invite a friend arrangement. The other caveat is that the friend still had to live in the US and pony up $1500.
We’re still a long way off from Glass becoming a mainstream release. Perhaps we’ll see a more wide-spread release after IO in May/June next year?
When do you think Glass will be released to the Public? How much will it be?
