We’re probably going to hear a lot from Google this week because its I/O developers conference kicks off this week. But before the balloon goes up, there are some small Glass-related items to report on.
The long-expected Diane von Furstenberg frames for Glass are now available. For $300 above the $1500 base price, they’re actually not bad, especially if you like the hipster look.
Glass is now available in the UK, its first non-US market. It costs 1000 pounds and drives on the left. (No, not really.)
The Information, a way-too-expensive content site, reportedly reports that Tony Fadell, the former Apple iPod exec acquired by Google when it bought Nest, is now in charge of Google’s consumer hardware. Google doesn’t make much consumer hardware itself but having someone highly knowledgeable about design and supply chain is probably a good person to have close to partners who do have to worry about that stuff.
