“Google Inc. plans to make digital eyeglasses in the U.S. with Foxconn Technology Group according to a person familiar with the plans,” Tim Culpan and Brian Womack report for Bloomberg.
“The eyeware, designed by Google and featuring software and cameras, will be made by the Taiwanese company at its factory in California, the person said, asking not to be identified because the plans are not public,” Culpan and Womack report. “The Financial Times reported earlier today Foxconn’s flagship, Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., will make the device.”
Culpan and Womack report, “Foxconn, based in Taipei, is the world’s largest contract manufacturer of electronics and the primary supplier of iPhones, iPads and iPods for Apple Inc. Its factories in China and Brazil make as many as 400,000 iPhones per day… In June, Google co-founder Sergey Brin said he expected to make the device available to product testers early this year with a broader consumer offering by 2014.”
