Google Glass Specs Revealed: 720P Video Camera
Google has released the tech specs for its Google Glasses after shipping its first batch to developers today. So without further ado, here's what you need to know.
The glasses contain a five megapixel camera for photos but films in 720p.
They contain 12 GB of usable memory which is synced with Google cloud storage and contains 16 GB of flash memory in total.
The glasses are supported by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth but surprisingly not by 3G, which may be a drawback in the short term.
The glasses are compatible with any Bluetooth supported phone; the MyGlass companion app, however -- which enables GPS and SMS messaging -- requires Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to work.
The battery should last about a day during "typical use" however features like Google Hangouts and video recording will drain the battery more quickly.
