Innovative Ara concept from Motorola

With new features popping up almost every other day, it’s tough to keep an old smartphone for a much long time. The buying of a whole new smartphone is an expensive option too.

But the latest project of Motorola, if implemented, can easily provide a way to upgrade the hardware just like upgrading a computer, i.e. swapping the processor, increasing the RAM, install a better camera, etc. Collaborating with Phonebloks for the venture named as Project Ara, the plan is to create an open hardware ecosystem to support the individual components by a third party developer.

Announced on October 28, 2013; Motorola quoted to “do for hardware what the Android platform has done for Software” while likening the idea to the greatly customizable Android operating system. As for now Motorola is closely working with the Phonebloks community for a better look into their modular smartphone space.

Excited with the target to get a developer’s kit in its alpha stage, to be released by this winter; Motorola proudly explained that the design comprised of the exoskeleton and the different modules of a phone “can be anything” to suit your choice of hardware.

A do-it-yourself smartphone like that will surely be a thing to wait for this winter.
