Google Inc (GOOG) opens Glass sales in the U.K. for £1,000

Posted Jun 24, 2014

Google Glass is now available for adults in the U.K. Google opened the Explorer edition of Glass to any U.K. resident over age 18 for the price of £1,000.

Based on current exchange rates, this is roughly around $1,700, which is $200 more than the price in the U.S.

Google Glass can recognize accents in the U.K. and acknowledges the metric system. For example, Fahrenheit was changed to Celsius.

Google is working with U.K. developers to provide locally relevant software for the device, which could come in the form of specialized mapping apps. Later this week, Google is hosting a demo day in London for people interested in trying out Google Glass.
