Just look at that delicious product on the left. I want one…
Leaving Isabelle Olsson to the side for just a moment, we’re hearing a little more about Google Glass specs, specifically that it uses a smartphone chip dating back to 2011. Good lawd.
Some guy (developer Jay Lee, to use his actual name; check him out on Google+) has discovered that Google Glass specs aren’t worth getting overly excited about.
Larry Page has already conceded that we should brace for, no, not Jelly Bean, but Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.4).
Building on that lacklustre promise, Lee has outed a couple more Google Glass specs, specifically an OMAP 4430 CPU, possibly dual-core, and a reported 682MB of RAM of what appears to be 1GB total.
Processor nerds will immediately recall that the OMAP 4430 first appeared in Q1 2011, ultimately powering such hits as the BlackBerry PlayBook, Motorola Atrix 2 and the original Amazon Kindle Fire.
Of course, with its fairly limited functionality, those specs could be more than enough to keep Google Glass ticking over.
Hopefully we’ll learn more from Isabelle and friends come Google I/O, which opens its doors on May 15.
