As Google Glass Explorers continue to tinker with their units we get to read some exciting details about this gadget, almost on a daily basis. It is also interesting to note that one Explorer has already rooted his Google Glass. Earlier this month Google revealed some specifications of Glass Explorer Edition. The units comes with a 5 megapixel camera with 720p video recording capability, 16GB internal storage, 802.11b/g and a display equivalent to the size of a 25 inch HD screen if the person is standing 8 feet away from it. The company didn’t list CPU and RAM specs, though one Explorer has gone deep enough to uncover that information.

Jay Lee and Liam McLoughlin found USB debugging settings of Google Glass and connected it to ADB. According to them, the Explorer units have an dualcore OMAP 4430 processor with 682MB of RAM. The unit runs Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.¬†They’ve not been able to determine the exact clock rate of the processor and also say that the RAM might be 1GB because Kernel messages suggest so. Specifications of the final Google Glass unit could change, however those units aren’t due until next year. This is the best information to go by at the moment.
