Developers who pre-ordered the first Google Glass models, called the Explorer Edition, will be receiving their headsets "within the next month." That's according to TechCrunch, which was told as much at an event today for the "Glass Collective," an investment syndicate that's formed in partnership with Google Ventures and two other firms, Andreessen Horowitz and Kleiner Perkins to provide seed funding for developers. The timeframe makes plenty of sense — we expect that Google I/O, which will be held from May 15th to 17th, will include some focus on Google Glass. Developers who pre-ordered the Explorer Edition at last year's Google I/O should be the first to receive their headsets; those who won the "If I had Glass" competition last month are lower on the list. For everyone else, we've been told by Google that Glass will be available to consumers sometime this year.
