The much anticipated Google Glass has been finally announced for release. Google has confirmed that without any further delay they will start shipping the first batch of glasses as it seems like the first lot of devices come off the production edge. Google has notified their ‘Glass Explorers’ through a mail stating that the company has decided to ship its first consignment to their 2000 explorers, who signed up for Google’s I/O developer conference in San Francisco last year.

With this terrific announcement, it is an apt time to throw light on some  of the hidden specifications of this device as well –

The device’s display is undoubtedly one of its prime factor and now it’s pretty clear why; it will have a resolution which is equivalent to a 25 inch high-definition screen from eight feet away. Developer’s guide says that it will capture a photo which will have a resolution of 640 x 360p. This could be the device resolution as well however, Google did not mark it in the spec list.

The Glass will also have a 5MP camera that can record your videos at 720p. Initially it will be shipped with 16 GB of flash storage memory, out of which 12GB will be for user access. Another most endearing feature the company has incorporated into this device is a bone conduction transducer which is an advanced audio transmission technology that will transmit sound from glass to the inner ear through the bones of the wearer’s skull.

Selected people for the first slot of deliveries can buy the Explorers edition by paying US$1500 only. Click here for more precise details and to know about usage of Google Glass.
