About the modular smartphone, there are a lot of good news. First time, Motorola talked about the modular phone and now Google is trying to revive the project. There are a lot of rumors about the Google Project ARA and its modular device. On the same idea, a UK team is working on a similar project called Blocks. Both ideas have small parts with different features and both projects are very appreciated on the market. The question is now, which will be the first modular device released? If we think logic, Google will release the first product, being a big company with many engineers and more resources.
The Google Project ARA has been talked the first time after the acquisition of Motorola Mobility in 2011, and after the patent acquired from Modu, an Israeli mobile phone company founded in 2007. Modu is the first company which developed the first modular cellular device and held the record for the lightest mobile phone in the world. The real beginning of the project started on April 1, 2013 and Motorola shared pubic Project ARA on October 29, 2013 as a collaboration with Phoneblocks(a modular phone created by the Dutch designer Dave Hakkens).
