Tickers in this article: AAPL GOOG

Rumors have circulated recently that Google may launch retail stores to help show off projects such as Google Glass and various Google-branded hardware. According to sources close to the situation, though, the rumors could be overblown.

Google Glass is set to be released next year for consumers. Developers are expected to get it later this year at a cost of $1,500 per unit.

Shares of Google were lower in Wednesday trade, off 0.9% to $799.42.
