When Google offered a one-day sale to Google Glass admirers, we knew their drive to get their hands on one would be fierce. So fierce, in fact, that the one-day promotion on lasted only a short while.
Within mere hours the white “Cotton” model of the Glass sold out and by Wednesday the entire inventory was gone.
The Glass was available in a total of five colors during the sale. At 3:30 p.m. Google Glass told the public that the Cotton Google Glass was sold out. Once everything was bought up, Google updated the Google Glass homepage notifying everyone that there were no available Explorer Program spots left, although more spots may open soon.
People can still sign up to receive the latest news and try to reserve a spot in the program. But for now, Google is back to offering spots by invite only.
Beyond promotional sales, Google plans to launch several updates to the gadget including improved battery life, new photo-sharing features, tools for developers and the removal of video calls. Google Glass’s one-day sellout shows promise for the potential success of the product and allows Google to confidently continue paving its path into wearable tech.
