As Google Glass Becomes a Reality - How dependent Will It Be On Android or Apple?
As the google glass phenomenon approaches, potential users have become inquisitive as to the specs of the device it connects to. We already know that it is only partially compatible with Apple devices - and also needs an app to work fully on Android mobile devices. The diea is that the Google Glass is almost autonomous - almost being the operative word. The thinking behind harnessing the mobile device is to stop the owner having to pay our for yet another SIM card to match the phone, the tablet and the glass. That thinking is good. However the device really needs to not rely on the mobile device for anything other than mobile communication. We understand taht this is now the intention of Google.
An insider intimated that the ideal is that Google Glass stands almost apart from the mobile devices apart from the mobile signal - therefore practically making it autonomous. The idea is that you won;t need to download an app or driver - it will just need pairing with a mobile device and you should be good to go. not only will this open the market for Apple adopters, but it means that whatever technology changes may occur in mobile devices the Google Glass SHOULD be untouched in functionality. We wait with baited breat as to the outcome - but we sure are excited to see how useful this device will become!
