Motorola is not taking Phonebloks vision along with its developer community for making a modular phone. Motorola will be sooner seeking input from Ara Scouts.
This would assist the Google subsidiary for shaping the future of Project Ara. In some months, Motorola would start inviting developers for designing modules for the platform of Ara. It is Module Developer’s Kit (MDK) which would be readily available in winters. An undeniable fact is that Motorola along with Google’s backing can make the project work. It can be an honest-to-goodness revolution within the smart phone industry.
Many people wish for a good camera and not much storage. One can spend great money on cheap-out on NAND and image sensor. If the speaker on the phone gets damaged, then a new module can be added by disconnecting it. Instead of it one can purchase an entire new phone and upgrade the components. Thunderclap campaign for Phonebloks is a worthy one, which takes place for approximately 9 hours. However this idea sounds very insane, but can show its real magic.
