Dubai-based online retailer Tejuri is stocking Google Glass for AED6,500, a considerable discount on Virgin's AED9,990.

Virgin is sticking to the price it determined when first stocking the wearable tech, which remains in an Explorer programme and has not yet been officially released by Google.

Google Glass, compatible with both Android and iOS platforms, comes with a display that mirrors the effect of a 63.5cm HD screen placed 2.4 metres from the user, and features a 5MP camera.

Dubai Police Smart Services Department has previously evaluated the technology for use by traffic police. The department's general director, Colonel Khalid Nasser Al Razooqi, told UAE daily Gulf News in May that his team has created two apps in house for traffic officers.

"One will allow them to take photos of traffic violations from the Glass, which will go instantly into our system, and the other application helps identify wanted cars," he explained.
