Update: Google Glass is now available on the Play Store in the UK for £1,000 and is available in black, red, white, charcoal and blue. Google says the device will ship from its warehouse in one or two business days. Glass still carries the Explorer tag and does not appear to be any different than the U.S. variant. You can view Glass on the Play Store here.

Original post: Ahead of Google I/O this week, Google Glass is now listed as being available in the United Kingdom on the Play Store support page. When the Nest Thermostat became available on Google Play, it too was prematurely posted on the Play Store support page for country availability. Should the support page be correct, the UK would be the first country besides the United States in which you can purchase Glass.

There are, of course, several other questions surrounding Glass being available on the UK Play Store. For one, we have to wonder if it will keep the $1500 price tag that its had since its initial announcement. There’s also the possibility that Glass could lose its ‘Explorer’ beta tag with Play Store availability.

Most likely, Google will answer these questions and many more at I/O, which kicks off on Wednesday with the company’s keynote. We’ll have coverage of the entire event, as it goes down.
