If you’re not reaching, engaging, and monetizing customers on mobile, you’re likely losing them to someone else. Register now for the 8th annual MobileBeat, July 13-14, where the best and brightest will be exploring the latest strategies and tactics in the mobile space.

Now you don’t have to be special to buy a Google Glass for yourself. You just need to have $1,500.

Google is evolving into “a more open beta” for Glass, continuing the Explorer Program for early adopters, according to a post today on the Google+ page for Google Glass.

Glass Explorers in the U.S. can now buy Google Glass in charcoal, tangerine, cotton, shale, and sky. And you can even ask for titanium frames or shades, free of charge. The move follows a one-day sale last month.

A “wider release” of Glass is coming, according to today’s Google+ post.

Google has tried to find more ways to show the value of Google Glass, with the Glass at Work program.

The New York Police Department and the U.S. Air Force have tested Glass, and some doctors have already found uses for Glass. Enough of these business-oriented case studies could show the widespread market viability of the wearable device.
