Re: Smart Glasses
I am not sure that public acceptance is going to be a big factor in adoption of smart glasses, Magneticnorth, at least not by industry. My guess would be that industry-specific applications are waiting on reliability data in real world uses, and cost.

"Samsung has greatly relied on Google Android, and is working to improve device security, while consumers are happy to have a variety of appealing products they can choose from."

Michael, there is no doubt that, for Samsung everything is business. That's the reason they sacked their own native OS 'bada' and embraced android.

Re : smart glasses
I have long been of the opinion that wearables can find a lot more use in the workplace and the results of the survey conducted by Gartner only confirms my suspicions. In the design and manufacturing industries, visualization of the entire project is key to its successful completion and this is why companies invest thousands of dollars in building models. Smart glasses give you instant access to the models without moving a muscle.

Re: Smart Glasses
Rodney, I'd speculate many are waiting for Glass to come out before seriously investing in industrial applications. Smart glasses still look a bit space age-ish to many, even if it's a lot simpler than an MRI machine. The public acceptance of Glass will certainly help in selling this type of technology to hospitals. Also, it may be more cost-efficient to just make software modifications to Glass than to reinvent the wheel (especially when Google's engineers are the ones doing the inventing).

Re: Smart Glasses
Doesn't Google hold a patent for the technology Glass uses to display images? If so, you should factor in what could potentially be a hefty license fee. I do hope Google won't be evil in allowing other companies to use Glass technology for other applications. That is, unless Google plans to get into B2B themselves!

Re: Heads Up Display
" First, the best implementation so far is tethered to the phone" What are you referring to when you say, "best implementation?"

Heads Up Display
Wearable tech specially that of smart eyewear holds a lot of promise but they are hindered by several things. First, the best implementation so far is tethered to the phone which will ultimately beg the question: why not just do all of these with the one thing you know will work? In conjunction, there simply many redundant features with not too many unique experiences. This also asks a similar query, why not use a smartwatch? The other side of the argument shows a supremely capable device that will allow clear video capture and broadcast, the best implementation of turn by turn navigation, neat call features, and unique notifications. Once other wearable smart devices are available, the glass could very well be the closest thing one will have to a heads up display.

Re: Google glass
Mobi: When it comes down to it, it's all about making sales and trying to continually lower Apple's market share in the tablet market. Samsung has greatly relied on Google Android, and is working to improve device security, while consumers are happy to have a variety of appealing products they can choose from. It's a great time to be a consumer looking for new electronics, because PC and laptop prices are down, HDTV prices are down, and tablet prices continue to show significant improvement.

Re: Google glass
"Right now, Google Glass is the only thing comes close to a computer in your eyewear, as opposed to an interactive heads up display."

Rodney, still am not able to get how much it's useful by integrating data connectivity and various apps through glasses. Wait and see, moreover it can be disturbance for vision too

Re: Google glass
"Heck, it's incredible how many people don't realize their Google Nexus tablet is a Samsung product, despite Samsung branded on the back of the device.'

Michael, I heard that Nexus from LG and marketing by Google. There are two types of business strategies, one with name and second doing business for third parties or other brands. Samsung has both. Samsung have their own brand image with various devices and they are supplying components for other brands like Apple, LG etc.
