Re: [newtech-1] Modular phone concept

Never happen, because who does the idea stand to make rich? Without that guy, who is going to manage the product suite? Phone companies make money selling phones not phone parts. They're not trying to help you not have to buy a new phone. In fact, they really want to sell you a phone, a ton of accessories, then later an updated phone and all new accessories. It's called business. Cute concept for talking points though.

Apologies if this has been covered before (I see I'm about 6 weeks late to the party), but is this concept likely to take off? It seems to solve the problems I've had with every smart phone -- too much of one thing, not enough of another, one crucial bit broken (or outdated) while the rest of the device still seems fine. As an environmentally concerned person, and a reluctant shopper, I like the idea of upgrading and replacing components rather than phones. 
But, lacking the expertise of others on this list, I'd really benefit from a critical and skeptical commentary by any interested contributors. 
N.B., I have no financial or personal stake in this product; I'm just curious.
