Google wants to start shipping Glass as soon as possible, but is waiting for the full production run to get completed so it can fulfil all the pre-orders. Glass will be shipped out to the 2,000 'Glass Explorers' who signed up for early bird editions of the device Google’s I/O developer conference in San Francisco last year.
“We are producing enough for everyone, but only a portion of them (Glass) are ready. Therefore we will be notifying you in waves,” Google said in an email statement.
According to Google, developers should make sure their apps are created with Glass in mind and testing on Glass appears to be a strict pre-requisite before submission. Google was also specific about not letting the Glass experience get in the way of everyday activities.
Google has urged developers to not include ads in the apps that are submitted for Glass, nor submit a paid apps. Similarly, asked developers to make sure their apps don’t annoy users with frequent and loud notifications. Given that Glass will probably be worn all day, this last guideline will please users. Developers have also been urged not to surprise users with unexpected functionality.
