It’s now focused on enterprise customers.
Google Glass may be one of the popular gadgets a few years back, but that hype quickly died down. While it looks like the famed augmented reality glasses have had its final days, Google somehow resurrected it as an enterprise-focused device called the Glass Enterprise Edition 2.
Announced a few months ago, we’ve gotten word that the device has just passed its certification and ready to sell to enterprise customers. There’s little change to the design, and in more ways than one it still reminds us of the original Google Glass. It’s now powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon XR1 chip along with 3 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32 GB of eMMC storage. There’s also an 8-megapixel camera plus USB-C to fast charge the 820 mAh battery plus Bluetooth 5 and support for Wi-Fi 802.11ac. Along with that, there are three microphones that can easily pick up voice commands.
As mentioned, the device was made solely for enterprise usage, and earlier programs have proven the device to be useful especially for hands-free access to information. The Glass Enterprise Edition 2 will retail for $999, and despite Google focusing on the enterprise market for now, there’s still a good chance that Google might sell this device commercially for everyone.
