Motorola’s working on a modular phone
Remeber PhoneBlocks, the modular based phone? While it was intriguing it was still only an idea, but guess just who picked up on that intriguing idea; that's right, Motorola.
Meet Ara – a project led by Motorola’s Advanced Technology and Projects group. Project Ara is developing a free, open hardware platform for creating highly modular smartphones. “We want to do for hardware what the Android platform has done for software: create a vibrant third-party developer ecosystem, lower the barriers to entry, increase the pace of innovation, and substantially compress development timelines,” the company writes at the company's official blog.
