    I think this will be a success because it will be as what would the end user wants it to be, depends on his tastes and style and ofcourse his needs. :)

    Ultimately I feel Price of the platform and modules with be a huge factor. No one will invest in this if they have to spend and arm and a leg for the frame and the rest of your body parts for modules. plus it should be PURE Android.

    Engadget is reporting that Google's Project Ara program has been dropped to "streamline it's hardware projects", according to the tech giant .
    TBH, I've been extremely skeptical about this device since day one but, I WAS interested in seeing how it turned out once it was in stores.

    Oh well....another one bites the dust.
    RIP Project Ara.
    On the plus side, I guess we can't miss what we never had.

    That's sad. I guess most people just want a phone to get them on Instagram and Netflix, instead of to be able to build and tinker.

    Sorry guys. One area Google will never dominate is cell phones. Just not going to happen.
