Google Goggles May Land during Holiday Season

If we are to believe the word on the tech streets, the day is not too far when smartphone users won't have to dig their pockets in order to take out their handsets every time a new text or email is received. Instead, they can check emails and messages with the help of a high-tech pair of glasses that would stream data from their smartphones in real time.

Google has been long rumoured to be developing such a pair of glasses for the consumer market, and according to a recent New York Times report, this unique and potentially game changing offering could be unleashed in the market in the running year itself- presumably in or around the holiday season.

The NY Times report, on the basis of inputs taken from unnamed Google employees associated with this highly secretive project, went on claiming that the pair of glasses will be priced somewhere in the range of $250 to $600. That is the same price range within which most of today's smartphones are available at.

Also, there is a fair bit of chance that the offering will be made for Android devices only- at least during the initial phase.

The pair of glasses "will include a small screen that will sit a few inches from someone's eye. They will also have a 3G or 4G data connection and a number of sensors including motion and GPS," read the NY Times report.
