Configurable Phonebloks? Iím amazed Motorola are apparently picking this one up.
Back in September we highlighted a concept design for taking a modular approach to mobile phone technology. Think swapping in different processors or displays from different vendors, or choosing to substitute different chunks of functionality Ė sacrifice the space for a camera module in order to gain NFC and Wi-Fi support, maybe.
Good in theory, I said (slightly patronisingly, but I envisaged lots of problems with the engineering details). But what do I know? The open source initiative is dubbed Project Ara reports theVerge.com.
Maybe Motorola think the concept is so good a suitable implementation will have to be foundÖ Itís a way, basically, to address the increasingly fast rate of obsolescence affecting mobile phones. A modular approach to components would minimise the impact of sub-system changes, thatís the basic thrust.
