This would be a great deal IF and only IF they can produce parts that can easily match or even better, outperform the highest-end parts while keeping the price at a very reasonable value.

well i think it is a great deal!!! , of course it will be annoying to replace some parts but on the other hand you can stop buying all the time a new device just replace processor or ram or camera and here you go again on top of the list!!!

For me I think the while phone is ready for replacement the day the cpu or ram or cam is no longer fulfilling my needs.

This phone will be fine if it has:
*changeable PROCESSOR (quad core)
*expandable slot for RAM
*changeable CAMERA (rear and front) and
*BATTERY

Modular concept fits perfectly well with Tile UI in Windows...
in that case other OS have to redesign their OS to fit Modular standards...
Windows will work Just Fine IMO...
Future is going to be awesome...
