You'll have to rush to get a try at the first real smartphone with modular accessories at a discount. And it's a substantial one.
Microsoft and Google? Not so hot. Virtual reality and you? Very hot. The stories and narrative arcs of mobile technology in 2016.
We get with it with Withings, hang around Huawei, pity Samsung and Galaxy Note 7 owners and talk a whole bunch about buses in Berlin on our Weekly podcast!
Google has confirmed that it has abandoned the project. The modular smartphone concept was targeted for a commercial launch in 2017.
Lenovo flagged this product as the most important one of today's launches. It's the Moto Z, the Moto Z Force and all the MotoMods to snap onto them.
Lenovo is teasing on its Weibo account an accessory using the rumored Moto Z's connector pins to attach a 10x optical zoom lens to the phone.
The modular smartphone project that was supposed to pilot in Puerto Rico a long time ago may be ready for consumers next year.
Modular phones are becoming a thing. Or so LG hopes. One of the most popular modular phones of later has been Project Ara, Google’s modular device that will have a Lego-like structure of swapping out components that are sold out of lunch wagons. I’m not even making this up. This is an interesting concept since it adds two things to your phone which cannot normally be added – longevity and ease of repair. LG’s modular design adds a new dimension to the equation – expandability. But the question is, are those things that the modern smartphone needs? Or is the [...]
At least, just yet. But with just a logo, a silent Twitter account and an email for developers, we hoped for more disquiet from Project Ara.
Somewhere within Google’s intestines lies Project Ara, a development circle focused on bringing to bear the modular “switch-this-thing-for-a-better-one” smartphone. But we have no idea where that’s going. Meantime, Fairphone has taken the crowdfunding route to getting its own modular, if only singular phones to the masses. Now, it seems that the team behind PuzzlePhone have taken a liking to this proverb about having and eating cake.
The Finnish developers from Circular Devices have put up their efforts at a modular Android phone on crowdfunding site [...]
Hey! It’s Project Ara! We still remember that ambitious group of people who wanted to build a modular smartphone for the masses, right? Well, they’ve been a bit socially silent since Google I/O 2015. Furthermore, their schedule’s been all out of wack: Ara was supposed to have made its way to Puerto Rico around the time of now. Not to worry, though, as someone from Project Ara has taken to Twitter to update us on what’s coming up.
First, a “hello” out of nowhere after spending a lot of time “making stuff.”
We sat down with Phonebloks to learn about the challenges involved in creating a modular smartphone and the company's vision for the future.
Where can we expect the Project Ara price point to land? Learn why a higher price doesn't make the project a non-starter, but why buy-in price matters.
Can you imagine the idea of still being able to use your old HTC HD2 under today’s hardware standards? There’s no denying that we all miss a specific smartphone we fell in-love with years ago, and I’m sure many of you would wish to still be able to use it today if the hardware was current to today’s software demands. Others would also like to be able to upgrade the camera of their HTC One, but wouldn’t mind keeping its beautiful design for another year. The idea of Modular smartphones that will allow you to do this has been on the news since mid-2013 with [...]
