Ever wondered that will be inside that “$1,500” Google Glass, well wonder no more since Google just published the “official specs” of Google Glass, a number of FAQ and product info, which more or less gave us an idea how the device will actually work and an “experienced radio/TV technician” can actually help you with the device.

Here are the Specs of the Google Glass:

Fit

  • Adjustable nosepads and durable frame fits any face.
  • Extra nosepads in two sizes.

Display

High resolution display is the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away.

Camera

  • Photos – 5 MP
  • Videos – 720p

Audio

  • Bone Conduction Transducer

Connectivity

  • Wifi – 802.11b/g
  • Bluetooth

Storage

  • 12 GB of usable memory, synced with Google cloud storage. 16 GB Flash total.

Battery

One full day of typical use. Some features, like Hangouts and video recording, are more battery intensive.

Charger

  • Included Micro USB cable and charger.

While there are thousands of Micro USB chargers out there, Glass is designed and tested with the included charger in mind. Use it and preserve long and prosperous Glass use.

Compatibility

  • Any Bluetooth-capable phone.
  • The MyGlass companion app requires Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher. MyGlass enables GPS and SMS messaging.

These specs aim to give us an idea as what to and what not to expect once the Google Glass goes mainstream. Though I think Google will try to gain as much support from developers and turn it into a platform before releasing it to the general public.

I’m not sure if we can call them Winners but those 2000 people who can pre-ordered the Google Glass via Google’s “Glass Explorer” program might be in for a big surprise. Don’t you think so?
