    Previously, we shared Google's release of the basic features & specs of Google Glass. The info they shared was a bit limited because it didn't share some of the specifics of the internal hardware. Today, the full hardware specs of the current generation of Google Glass have been shared by one of the developers who has the device already. Here's a quote followed by a full breakdown,

    Based upon this additional shared info and Google's previous release of specs, here is a full breakdown:
    • TI OMAP Dual-Core 4430 processor, (same CPU as the original Kindle Fire and DROID RAZR)
    • 1GB of RAM (682MB Useable)
    • Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich
    • Adjustable nosepads and durable frame fits any face
    • Extra nosepads in two sizes
    • High resolution display is the equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away (actual resolution = 640 x 360)
    • 5 MP Camera with 720p video
    • Bone Conduction Transducer
    • Wifi - 802.11b/g
    • Bluetooth
    • 12 GB of usable memory, synced with Google cloud storage, and some used by the system (16 GB total)
    • One full day of battery use, although we still don't know the specific numbers on this yet (Some features, like Hangouts and video recording, are more battery intensive)
    • Included Micro USB cable and charger.
    • The MyGlass companion app requires Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher - MyGlass enables GPS and SMS messaging
    These specs look intriguing, but it's also important to point out that the final specs (especially the version of Android) are likely to change before the final retail versions of the product start hitting retail shelves.

    So....lets record the world with only 16 gigs of storage....12 usable. It doesn't mention if it does or doesn't have a MicroSD card slot. I'm guessing it doesn't.

    Yeah this would be the most logical, and actually smartest place for storage (at least for Google)

    Nerds beware, this will NOT get you laid. I'm surprised the entire cast of Big Bang Theory isn't already wearing them...
