Pictures showing Glass fit

Along with today’s Glass API release, Google now officially announced specs for the Glass Explorer editions. Notable is the camera which will take 5 Megapixel images or 720P video. The 16GB of storage (12GB usable) is a lot for such a small object (same as a base model iPad) but not a huge feat noting that Micro-SDcards now go to 64GB and beyond.

Glass will only use slower 802.11B/G wifi likely to save energy and chip size by eliminating 802.11N (or ac). Perhaps most importantly, Google says the display will be the equivalent of a 25-inch HD screen about 8 feet away. That’s a good way to imagine the Glass experience.

All of this and a full day of battery use is suggested. We’ll see.
