RumorTT: Google to open retail stores specifically for Google Glass

Rumor: Google to open Glass retail stores to sell, configure, and explain Google Glass to consumers

According to Business Insider, Google is planning to open retail stores specifically to sell Google Glass. This comes via a second-hand source who knows someone working with Sergey Brin to plan the Glass stores. In many ways, these stores make sense. People are going to want need to try Glass out before putting $1,500 down for their own pair.


These retail stores would focus solely on Glass. It's important that users be able to try Glass out and have it set up properly. Much like Apple's One-to-One training, Google's retail installations would help configure Glass for each user and give them an in-depth explanation of how to work it all.

As with all rumors, we encourage you to approach this with a bit of skepticism.
