Tying Down Android

Most business desktop phones are primitive devices compared with modern cell phones, but Glass can integrate with Microsoft Outlook using a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection, allowing contacts to be dialed at the tap of a finger on the eight-inch screen. It also allows access to popular online applications such as ­Salesforce.com’s customer relationship software. The phone uses the Android operating system, which is normally associated with mobile devices; Cloud Telecomputers chose this Linux-based OS for its small footprint.
