Anyone got thoughts on what happens to the Explorers program, in particular, RECENT explorers? I can see how if you had bought Glass for $1500 a year or so ago when it first was announced, you can justify it somewhat.
But for those who are buying it now or soon, if it does come out in April for $900 cheaper...do you think Google will do anything to compensate? 3 months for $900 difference is a bit hard to swallow I feel.
Maybe they can refund part of it or give a free Glass to recent purchases?
Its always been premium to be one of the few first to have glass. If you can't see or justify it that way, i would recommend you to wait for the retail units.
Just like how iPhone is selling like hot cakes in China, (before its officially launch), People has to pay premium (up to double) the price to own one.
Having said so, google has always been generous, for instance about nexus Q, which they give back full refund plus the device for free. You never know.
