Google Glass specs announced

Google has finally published the full technical specifications of Glass, along with the Mirror API for apps and the MyGlass for Android companion app. Google Glass is expected to feature a 640 by 360 pixel display which is the equivalent to that of a 25-inch high definition screen from around eight feet away. It will have a 5 megapixel camera which is capable of 720p HD video capture, 16GB of internal storage which can be synced with Google Drive cloud service, however only 12GB will be available to the user for actual use.

The Google Glass battery is expected to last the user “one full day of typical use” but doing things such as recording videos and Google Hangouts will drain it faster. You can connect Glass through its 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi connection or by tethering it to your device's data connection. Glass will be compatible to work with any Bluetooth capable phone.

The technical specs of Google Glass follow:

Earlier today Google has also sent out emails to the lucky members of the Google Glass Explorer program to inform them that the production of the first batch of Glass units are complete and that they will be shipping it out in the next few weeks.
