Ever since the limited developer beta of Google Glass launched, Google has suggested the first shipments of consumer ready Glass would come in 2014. Recent developments would suggest they’re on track, recently unleashing a horde of Glass invites, announcing a new edition of the Glass hardware, new Glass accessories, and working on some other mysteriously exciting Glass projects.

We’re not sure if Google will pull out any surprises on the 19th or 20th, but if they do, they’ll be sharing it with the world on YouTube after the event and visiting with developers in LA and NYC in early December.

This second production run of Google Glass leads us to believe the 2014 timeline is accurate, but don’t expect to see Glass on your store shelves anytime soon. I think it’s more likely that Google will make an announcement for consumer ready Glass at Google IO 2014 with a launch to follow closer to the holidays.

You’ve still got an opportunity to win a Google Glass invite from Phandroid tomorrow but you’ll have to be fast, so check in early and often!
