Glass Will Be the Next iPhone — But Today It’s A Newton
Today from yahoo news:
"Google Glass is a “when,” not “if,” product. The prototype version of Glass that’s currently available to developers, known as the Glass Explorer edition, shows enough promise that we at Forrester Research think it’s just a matter of time until it takes off. However, its short battery life — as well as the limited Mirror application programming interface (API), which restricts app developers’ access to the device’s native hardware sensors — makes version 1 Glass more of a Newton than an iPhone. By that, we mean that Glass is very compelling, but extremely limited in its current form, just like Apple’s Newton was. Glass is continuously improving via over-the-air updates and new applications, though, and we have no doubt that in time, it will be the next iPhone — the next great platform for engaging consumers and workers."
