Better late than never is a mantra that anyone ought to adopt, although it would be a whole lot better too, if one were to be able to be punctual, but there are moments in life when such a thing is not possible due to unforeseen circumstances, or otherwise. Having said that, here is the Recon Jet, a project that has seemingly been forgotten. We did mention that it will finally start to ship at the end of last month, and just to recap, you can check out the hardware specifications of it right after the jump.


Similar to the now defunct Glass, the Recon Jet will rely on a tiny display which is located right outside of your normal field of view, letting you check out various information that is shown on it. It might seem as though you are actually looking at a 30” HDTV instead.

Hardware specifications include a dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal memory, a 3D accelerometer, 3D gyroscope, 3D magnetometer, Pressure sensor, an Infrared (IR) sensor, GPS support, Bluetooth 4.0 (Bluetooth Smart) connectivity, ANT+, Wi-Fi (IEEE802.11a/b/g/n), Micro USB 2.0 and ReconOS 4.1 as the operating system of choice, itself being based on the Android platform.

Battery life remains one sticky issue where the Recon Jet is concerned, where you would not get much done with just 4 hours of juice, which means bringing around a secondary battery is a good idea. At least it will ship with an extra battery right from the get go.
