Google Glass can use Bluetooth to access iPhone’s data connection

google-glass-girl-2By this point, all of you should know about Google Glass. Some people, such as Joshua Topolsky of The Verge, are able to get an early look at the wearable computing device. In case you aren’t yet aware of Google Glass, it is a device that you wear like you would sunglasses, and contains a camera, Wi-Fi chip, Bluetooth chip, GPS, and shows the user an interface through augmented reality through the little glass part in the front (hence, Google Glass). Apparently, it will be able to show things such as text messages, phone calls, emails, and other miscellaneous bits of information sent from your phone. A lot of people showed concern over its compatibility with iOS devices, however, Topolsky said that it can connect to “Wi-Fi on its own, or it can tether via Bluetooth to an Android device or iPhone and use its 3G or 4G data while out and about.” That’s definitely reassuring, as personally I am planning on getting one the minute they are available.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear this? Will you be picking one up? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
