It looks like we’re about to see even more Google Glass units in circulation soon. Google has contacted select Glass Explorers inviting them to buy a second pair of Google Glass for themselves or a friend. This is different from the extra invites program, where Glass Explorers could invite up to three friends to buy a pair of Glass.
The price tag hasn’t changed, folks — it’s still $1,500 — but if you or someone you know have that much money and don’t know what to do with it, this would be an interesting buy. For your money, you’ll be treated to the latest prototype, which will soon support prescription lenses, and comes with a connection to use a mono earbud for improved unit audio.
Speaking of those earbuds, Google is reminding folks who had trouble accessing their Glass store that accessories are available to purchase. You can get the mono earbud for $50, stereo earbuds (designed specifically for Glass, and with interchangeable color caps) for $85, as well as replacement pouches, charging / data cables, and the clear shield attachment. Be sure to check your email if you’re a Glass Explorer to see if you’ve received another purchase code. You can find the full email being sent to Glass Explorers below.
As you might have discovered, some Explorers who purchased Glass over the phone weren’t able to access our store. You weren’t missing anything before but we have a few new goodies in there now, so here’s a code that you can use to get started:
For future reference, your code is: REDACTED
We’re so grateful that you’ve been with us as a Glass Explorer since the beginning. So, in addition to the new earbuds that you’ll find in our store, we’d also like to give you the option to purchase a second Glass for yourself or for a friend, as many of you have requested.
