phonebloks was partnered with Motorola and Google own them now so hello ara
cant wait until jan 2015 this is gunna change everything about smart phones.

Why not add a flip-open keyboard attached to the touch screen? It's like one which Sony Ericsson has done it before. Forgot the model no. -.-
Can I also add Razer's Project Christine modules in Project Ara's body? :D
How about a keyboard/gesture module for the BACK of the phone so that I can "type" into it while I'm looking at the FRONT?
nexuxx, 10 Apr 2014project ara still remains in hands of googleAnd that is gooooood :)

It seems like a cool idea, but more like the idea is cooler.
In reality we have to worry about durability and pieces scattering...
And then updating parts will have the same expensive monopoly and compatibility issues anything else has.
I believe mobiles in future will become like assembling computers. Like example i wanna buy a Nvidia twin frozr GTX 780 is sky hi expensive,PSU unit 1000 WATT also more,then processor mainboard costly as usual hard drives are middle cost, even the chassis of the CPU computer is not cheap at all these days like the obsidian series of thermaltake or razer. Then what about the future of modular mobiles? Well i believe like example if i wanna buy a module of not 3 GB ram but 6GB ram for ara or modular phones then they will be expensive, super shot camera also expensive, if i need xenon flash instead of LED flash then more costlier and then which brand to choose like sony nikon or cannon will make it more expensive just like removing your old speakers and installing beats speakers or harman kardon. If future takes more advancements then an issue of old circuitry will arise resulting in we cant use new modules of ram camera hdd processor then it will make us throw away the main circuitry which holds the modules and buy a new circuitry board in order to make new modules or advanced modules work fine and perfect. Please correct me if i am wrong as i am not against this project ara.
