I still think that the Ara modular phone could be a great thing for mobile music

This is an interesting piece of what Google is planning with the Ara project and some elements of it are really quite radical, or at least I think so.

When I first posted about this, when it was just Phonebloks (I think that was the name anyway) I didn’t get a terribly good response. However, I think that a modular device could work really well for mobile music. The only proviso (and it’s a big one) is that there are the right kind of modules available to put in the device, and/or third parties have the ability to produce modules for the Ara project.

So I’ll be keeping an eye on this and letting you know about it from time to time.
