An affordable $50 price tag for Google’s Project Ara

Time issued a report hinting towards the arrival of the Google Ara smartphones in early 2015 which will come with an entry price tag of $50. While Motorola was being handed down to Lenovo, the search giant held back the team which was behind the Ara project. The price tag keeps the promise of providing modular smartphones at affordable rates. This reasonable price tag will only include the moist basic form of Wi-Fi and no cellular connection. Once the device is launched, there will different models available and also the modules can be added to the device with an extra charge.

According to what the Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group has revealed to Time, the Ara project will make its way in three different sizes. Though the sizes are not customizable, they will cover everything up as they range from a pocket-friendly device to a full-blown phablet. The endoskeleton around which the project has been designed is provided by Google itself because it wants to ensure tight control over the platform. As far as the prototype is concerned, the Project Ara main unit with added modules is 9.7 mm thick and with larger batteries the thickness of the full setup will be retained at 10 mm.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
