It seems as if the second batch of Google Glass Explorers will soon be getting invites to pick up their Google Glass.
TechCrunch reports that all of the Google I/O 2012 attendees who signed up last year were offered to purchase Google Glass by either picking them up at Google or having them shipped to them. Google's Steve Lee said the 8,000 #ifihadglass will "getting theirs soon," by "theirs" he means invitation to pick up Google Glass.
Jesse Stay on Google+ was one of those I/O sign ups and he was upset that some #ifihadglass winners ended up receiving their Google Glass before the I/O 2012 folks. Truth is, some did but only a select few.
Google's Sarah Price (who recently had a birthday, happy birthday) explained that some had special partnership agreements with Google. She wrote:
Hi Jesse Stay we're working really hard to get invitations out to all the people who signed up at I/O last year and we haven't started on invitations for #ifihadglass - although there are a very small number of people who have gotten Glass for partnership reasons, like Andrew. I know it's frustrating to wait. Thanks for hanging in there so far.
Jesse ended up getting his invite on May 14th or so. So he has his Google Glass.
Folks like myself, who are part of #ifihadglass still anxiously await.
