Google Glass is coming to an AT&T store near you [UPDATE]

Update: A Google spokesperson has reached out to us and said: “We have no plans to sell Glass in AT&T stores.”

Google has been slowly inching toward an official release of Google Glass. They opened it up for random one day sales, and right now anyone can buy into the Explorer program if you have $1,500 to spend. When Glass does finally become officially available many people have wondered where it will go on sale. @evleaks may have the answer.

Many Google products are only sold online through the Play Store, with Chromebooks being the exception. Google Glass will most likely also be sold this way, but also in at least one major retailer: AT&T. @evleaks says “AT&T USA will be one of the first retail locations to offer Google Glass for sale to the public.” No release date or pricing was given.

We have to imagine that Glass will be cheaper and more refined when it does go on sale to the public. Right now it’s a bit odd-looking and battery life could be much better. It’s still an extremely cool and futuristic device. The potential for Glass is off the charts, as long as the Glassholes don’t ruin it. Will you be buying Google Glass when it goes on sale?

    Oh God no. Now I have to see Glassholes when my contract is up next month.

      Did you come up with that witty remark all by yourself? You sir are funny.

    If the price is right! Also hoping that it’s not tied to some ATT contract or plan or something since it uses the phones data connection or wifi. So technically i’d just buy it from them even though i’m a VZW customer.

      now they need to fix their damn android app

        We have been delayed… lots of little things that are delaying a new version. Out of curiousity, what is broken for you? I have fixed a bunch of bugs and I just want to make sure that the next version will addresses your issues.

        You should join up our Beta community: http://goo.gl/CVW0iw

        I am soon to advertise that out to get some quality testers but it will be at least a few days before you see anything posted.

          I’ve found that the app crashes (unfortunately, Phandroid… message) on my Galaxy S3 at times when I attempt to go back to the main page after exiting the comments section of an article.

            I reworked a lot of code and it took longer than expected because this error was more system level. I still don’t know why it was crashing but I have not seen this happen since I reworked the code. Was about to publish a new build… and Google removes our app (we still don’t know why). Keep an eye on the beta community and we will be sure to keep you updated.

            Thanks for your feedback!

        They had to fix their iOS app first ;) . In all seriousness, the Android app is the step child. Its not broken, its just aging.

        • http://codeversed.com/ Steve Albright

          I think you’re talking about the old app. The current one is not currently in the Play store.. updates will be coming soon.

  • MIKEEEEE

    when the price drops to 300 bucks and comes with rayban frames.

    I’ll be buy when it goes on “sale” and by that I mean “on sale.” The current pricing is way off the mark on value/$.

    “Many Google products are only sold online through the Play Store, with Chromebooks being the exception.” What about Chromecast? It’s sold in almost every big chain store.

    • Mark Washington

      I am sure you can add more to that list but that’s not the point of the article!

      • vzwuser76

        Then why not say Most Google devices are sold through the Playstore, with a few exceptions. Journalism is not only about making a point, but also about being factually correct. If you’re not, it calls into question the rest of the article’s facts as well. Considering all the articles on Phandroid about the many varied places to buy Chromecast, I can’t imagine why this wouldn’t be common knowledge.

        Sorry if you think I’m being picky, but too many news outlets play fast and loose with the facts, or operate in the gray area, and that’s part of the reason why people are less likely to trust them these days.

        • Mark Washington

          You make a valid point!
