April 11, 2013 - Within the next few weeks, those people who pre-ordered the Google Glass will have the new specs in their hands. Google confirmed that it’s Explorer Edition of the new Google Glass networked specs that cost$1,500 will be shipped within a few weeks.

A spokesperson for Google said the company hopes that the new specs would be shipped in April. The Glass Explorer specs are designed to examine the different potential uses of the Glass. The idea is for consumers to try it and see what has to be tweaked.

The timing of the Glass shipments coincides with the San Francisco based I/O conference Google holds annually, where the Glass is thought to be one of the major focuses of the conference.

The release of the new specs also follows last month’s reports that said the first specs would shortly be finished with production in factories located in the U.S.

It is still not clear whether the new headsets will ship in April or until early May and no one is sure if they will be going to the developers or to the 8,000 winners of competitions who Google recently chose to purchase their own glasses.

In other news related to the Google Glass, Google Ventures the investment arm announced Wednesday it teamed up with Andreessen Horowitz, the venture capitalist and an early supporter of Google, Kleiner, Perkins, Caulfield and Byers to setup Glass Collective to produce the first apps for the Glass.

Some say that Glass has an even bigger potential than the Smartphone. One user said it could create a new world of experiences and services.
